The Skills to Succeed study programme provides a progression route to employment, vocational study and/or apprenticeships for students studying at level 1.
The programme aims to equip students with the skills, experience and confidence required for successful progression so that students overcome complex barriers to learning and employment. Students are provided with a high level of support and guidance and are encouraged to set themselves challenging, achievable goals in order to reach their aspirations.
A key component of the programme is to support students to develop increased levels of independence with their academic learning, therefore, learning is predominately class room based. Practical and vocational skills are developed through participation in extended work experience; students are expected to attend a work placement independently for approximately 100 hours over the academic year.
Students will work towards completion of a City and Guilds, Level 1 Extended Award in Employability in addition to English and maths (as appropriate).
This is a full-time course which runs from September to June (36 weeks) and is delivered at Braintree.
