Steps to Employment and Further Education - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

This course is ideal if you are undecided about your future and want to explore your options before moving on to vocational training or applying for work. The programme aims to support and develop your social, emotional and behavioural needs as well as academic attainment. After initial assessment, you will be guided through the process of building portfolios in a range of subjects that are relevant to your future needs. Subjects encourage independent learning and creativity, and range from work skills and managing money, to creative media, sport, exploring the local area, art and design, volunteering and life skills.

Assessment Methods

Staff will observe your work and give you regular feedback. You will build a coursework folder of written and pictorial evidence of your learning, and be able to work towards the next level in Maths and English. You will agree individual targets for the year and create a portfolio of evidence to show how you meet these.

Progression Options

On successful completion, you could study a further Entry Level programme or progress to a Level 1 or 2 vocational programme. Alternatively, you could find employment or start an Apprenticeship if you secure an employer.

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.
