This qualification will support students in understanding the vocational areas at the college and will allow them to study towards a Certificate or Extended Certificate in Vocational Studies, where they will cover key employability skills helping them to build confidence, increase their social skills, and introduce them to the larger community and workforce they will soon be entering as young adults.
The course is designed to provide learning experiences across a wide range of work environments. The Gateway units we choose cover a wide range of topics to build general skills for both work and social settings. These include Positive Attitudes and Behaviours, Creating Enterprise Projects and Preparing for a Work Placement.
Taster sessions in other subject areas are encouraged during the term so that students get as many different experiences as possible in order for them to find their way and progress successfully into their future.
