Employability and Vocational
Students in this pathway generally aspire to work in their future. This may be full or part time employment, self-employment or volunteering; the Employability and Vocational pathway offers students the opportunity to access both internal and external work experience placements as well as studying and developing key skills for employment and future independence. Some students in this pathway may progress into the HSDC Alton College partnership to further pursue their study while others may conclude their time at Treloar’s in our supported internship programme which you can find out more about here. Students in this pathway tend to be working between Entry Level 3 and Level 2 study. All students in this pathway will have access to discrete and bespoke support with their functional literacy and numeracy skills. This may be provided at HSDC with a GCSE outcome or at Treloar’s campus.
The Employability and Vocational pathway also supports students’ independence and help them to develop their future living aims alongside their academic and employment aspirations. Students in this pathway aspire to a range of future living arrangements and will be supported to explore all options available to them so they can make an informed choice. The transition team work closely with students and their families to support them to access their desired outcome. Students get the opportunity to develop their independence skills and prepare for life beyond Treloar with a variety of sessions designed to practice and progress key skills. Cooking, Community Skills, Transition/Independence sessions are all built into the curriculum for our learners.
Skills development is supported by the Skillsbuilder platform. Students look at the eight essential skills for life and how nurturing these skills can enable their future success. The Skillsbuilder programme helps our students to recognise the importance of these skills in all aspects of college life. Click here to find out more about Skillsbuilder.
Community inclusion is an important part of our student’s independence and all students will regularly access their community and plan both their trip and the support they may need.
In addition, all students are able to access a range of creative options to widen their experience and enable them to engage further in chosen pursuits in the future.
