Alternative vocational experiences help young people try different jobs, and develop work skills to prepare for work.
We offer a range of vocational opportunities and experiences to help develop work, social skills and independence.
We approach local employers on your behalf to make sure they can offer a suitable vocational experience to meet your needs.
You could also join our community projects.
There are lots of opportunities to choose from:
- Work at a local business on a long or short term work placement
- Work in the community, choose from gardening, woodwork, arts and crafts or join the recycling project.
- Gain a recognised qualification – ASDAN qualifications offer flexible ways to accredit skills for learning.
- Join the work preparation club to learn how to put a CV together, search for a job, complete a job application and prepare for an interview
Whatever you choose, the Wellbeing Service offers dedicated support.
