Skills for Work
Skills for Work courses provide the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills which will help to prepare learners for the world of work.
 
Skills for Work Courses are different from other vocational provision because they focus on generic employability skills needed for success in the workplace. The courses offer opportunities for learners to acquire these critical generic employability skills through a variety of practical experiences that are linked to a particular vocational area.
 
Young people taking a Skills for Work Course will normally spend some of their time with a local employer. This will mean learning in a different environment, meeting new people and facing new challenges.  The Courses are intended to provide progression pathways to further education, training and employment.
 
Speak to your guidance teacher initially to find out more about the courses on offer at your school or possibly through your local College.
