Inclusion at The Sheffield College is for students who have a variety of support needs, learning difficulties or disabilities, or are seeking to re-engage with education.
Chelsea, Supported Internship at Waitrose
We offer two different pathways for students, designed to give them the opportunity to develop their independence, confidence and skills for social situations, everyday life and work.
Our brand-new offer for high needs students has been expertly designed for students who have a variety of support needs, learning difficulties or disabilities.
Each pathway will enable learners to develop their independent living skills and their social, emotional and personal development. They will take part in practical options including cooking and art and will also have the opportunity to develop their English and maths skills. Some pathways also have a supported placement attached to enable learners to develop their skills and confidence in the workplace.
Our Career Discovery pathway is a stepping stone for young people to progress onto further learning or into employment. The pathway is for young people who need to improve their English and maths skills, and develop their skills for working life and living independently. This is an ideal opportunity for young people who are not currently in education, employment or training.
Please note: it is possible for us to accept students aged 14 - 16 as infills onto our Find Your Future study programmes. Students may be accepted following an application and interview with a member of the team. Please contact 14-16EHE@sheffcol.ac.uk for more information.
Entry routes for each young person will be based on an application, interview with college and school staff, an observation in a familiar setting and abilities at interview.
The college team will collaborate with schools, families and the young person at each step in the application to ensure the most suitable pathway is identified for a young person.
Visits to the campus, taster sessions and informal events such as Coffee Mornings will be offered to the young person and family to ensure a supported and successful transition through the college.
Our Inclusion programmes are further enhanced throughout the year with opportunities for students to participate in additional sporting events, overnight and week-long residential stays, educational visits, lunch-time activities and end-of-year celebration events. Our number one priority is to make sure our students learn in a safe environment. Our friendly staff are experts in providing support for young people with a wide range of specific needs. They provide students with the best possible learning environment so that they can achieve their goals.
