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 with high support needs, designed to give them the opportunity to develop their independence, confidence and skills for social situations, everyday life and work.
We also offer a third pathway which has been designed to help students re-discover their passion for education and work.
This pathway is the perfect preparation for students who are looking to take their next step in life. We will promote and develop the experience of living independently, working with students on their self-sufficiency and self-confidence. Students will be introduced to crucial skills for living independently such as travel, cooking, domestic skills, the value of money, forming appropriate relationships, healthy living and being involved in the community
Foundation Learning is a pathway for you to develop your skills for life and the world of work. They are supported courses that enable you to develop your independent living skills and your social, emotional and personal development. You will take part in practical options including cooking and art and you will also have the opportunity to develop your English and maths skills. Some courses on this pathway also have a supported placement attached to enable you to develop your 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. IT is an ideal opportunity for young people who are not currently in education, employment or training.
We still have places for students starting throughout the 2021/22 academic year.

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.

They provide students with the best possible learning environment so that they can achieve their goals.
