Transitions into employment 

This project provides intensive support to young people aged 14-16 that have been identified as vulnerable or “hardest to reach”. The individuals will benefit from a comprehensive personal assessment process that leads into a range of personal development activities and progress into a more structured programme of vocational learning which also includes essential skills (basic skills) and wider key skills. Social skill development is fundamental to the programme, as confidence and their capacity to learn is increased young people will develop job focused skills and both social and soft skills to enable a transition into a work or further learning environment. Employability skills will be increased in a variety of areas such as Construction, Outdoor Learning, Environmental, Hairdressing, Arts & Media, First Aid training, Manual Handling and Food Hygiene. There is a focus on literacy and numeracy development as the levels of basic skills ranges from pre entry to level 1. Young people will participant in Work Preparation activities which include CV writing, applying for jobs and job search plus financial literacy workshops. Additionally young people will complete pre-employment training which will prepare them for interview and improve interview techniques followed by a weeks’ work experience..

The purpose of the project is engaging 14 – 16 year old young people to ensure that they leave school with recognised qualifications (ASDAN CoPE and BTEC Vocational Learning Programmes) and have an agreed progression route. This enables more young people to receive the support they need as they transition from school into either work, on to a main stream learning provider within the transitions into employment prosperous project and therefore preventing them from becoming NEET. This also impacts on young people’s attendance within schools throughout the borough and contribute to achievements at level one threshold.
