This is a supported employment programme for young people with an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) who may need support to transition into employment. The programme aims to develop skills in real-life opportunities to prepare you for the workplace. It will also support the development of independence skills in preparation for adult life.
The programme centres on a work placement which starts after October half term for at least two days a week. Our dedicated staff work with you to identify a placement match with Avon and Somerset Police and support you throughout the process to ensure you have the best chance to succeed. You will attend lessons on site, at College, including English and maths, employability and tutorials. You will also develop your employability skills to support your progression within the workplace.
Topics may include:
Following an initial assessment to establish your starting point, you will set targets for all aspects of your development and be assessed throughout in partnership with the employer. Assessment is through a portfolio of evidence including photographs, practical and written assessments. Staff also observe you in lessons and on work placement. Your progress will be monitored using personalised targets through a learner journey. If not already achieved, you will be entered into English and/or maths qualifications at the appropriate level, Functional Skills or GCSE. You will attend English and maths lessons every week and complete an exam at a suitable time of the year.
On successful completion of the programme, you are prepared to complete a Supported Internship Programme, gain sustainable paid employment or apply for Traineeships or Apprenticeships.

It’s a pleasure and honour to study at this College. My tutors and the Learning Support Assistants provide all the support I need and are always there for me. They make it clear they’re working with you rather than taking a leading role.
