Into Work – Outreach

What is Into Work – Outreach?

The aim of the course is to involve you in being an active member of your local community and increase your work skills so you have a definite and positive foundation after leaving college.

There is an optional qualification that can be gained while on this course which covers a wide range of employment skills at different educational levels, depending on each student’s ability. Students do not have to take an English or maths qualification on this course but we will support them to maintain or increase their skills; our aim is to be flexible to each student to enable and empower them to achieve.
