This course is for students who want to explore their employment choices and pathways. The course will help you to decide your career pathway through industry visits, work experience and/or placement opportunities.
This course is for students who are working at around Entry Level 3. You will explore opportunities to get into placements and work experience. You will also visit employers to get an insight into the skills and qualifications needed to follow their career pathway.
You will be based with our partner organisation called Communicate2U in partnership with Coventry University based in Cotteridge. The course is delivered from Cotteridge church and you will attend visits, industry tours, placements and work experiences.
You will be allocated a personal tutor who will support you throughout your course and meet with you once a week to ensure you are making progress and feel supported.
