Steps into Work is designed to give participants with learning disabilities the opportunity to gain practical experience of the workplace whilst learning and developing valuable skills needed for any employment.
This is a one year programme offering a great opportunity to study for a BTEC Level 1 Work Skills qualification while gaining real life experience of the work place in three *placements provided by Transport for London. At least two of the three placements will be office-based but there may be an opportunity to experience customer service on a London Underground station (for students 18 years or older).
This programme is fully supported with job coaching provided by Remploy, and Barnet & Southgate College delivering daily tutorials. Individuals will develop the following skills through the programme:
- Team working
- Problem solving
- Professionalism in the workplace
- Communication skills
- Job preparation, including; CV writing, applying for jobs and interview skills.
The Year 9 Programme will run from January 2018 until December 2018. If you are interested in this programme call 020 3054 2718 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an expression of interest form.
