STEPS

Employability

Entry Level 1 & 2

Here at Sutton and District Training we are very excited to introduce a new provision called ‘STEPS’ for our students who require additional needs. Focusing mainly on ‘Preparation for Adulthood’ goals, students will have the opportunity to work on building their confidence and deal with coping with the everyday stresses that may arise in day to day living. ‘STEPS’ is not exclusively for students with EHCPs, applicants will be considered on a needs basis.

The Diploma in Employability can be tailored to the individual student and will cover modules such as travel training, accessing local services, working as part of a team, and preparing for attending an interview.

Within our offer, students will work closely with our local partners and take part in work experience. We will also encourage fluidity between our vocations giving students the opportunity to undertake vocational tasters in areas such as hairdressing, plumbing and gaming. GCSE’s and FS’s Maths and English will also be part of the course.

Our provision aims to support the transition between education and employment. Upon completion of the qualification students move onto vocational pathways at Sutton and District Training, or work with our LBS partners such as Choice Support and South Thames College, working towards employment.

Our overall aim is to equip our students with the skills necessary to move into work and independent living whilst providing a nurturing environment to grow.
