Course Overview

This is a one year programme suitable from Entry Level 3 to Level 1 for those with a learning difficulty / disability.  The focus of the course is on improving employability and personal skills. 

Topics covered can include; 

  • Enterprise Activity
  • Effective Skills for Learning and Work
  • Managing Personal Finance
  • Teamworking 
  • Use of ICT

Students will participate in completion of The Duke of Edinburgh Award throughout their time on the programme. To support completion of expedition, adjustments can be made where assessors feel it is necessary.  However, we can only make adjustments that allow students to still demonstrate the 20 conditions for expedition.   

In addition, students may work towards a work placement supported by Mencap or Stepping Stones NI. Start date for work placement will be decided by the core team and may take place at anytime during the year. Monitoring of work placement may be transferred at anytime during the programme between Mencap and SERC. This will not disrupt students work placements.

This course is offered to some students after the successful completion of the two year Job Club programme.

The course will improve your confidence, communication, social and interpersonal skills.  

Assessment is via a portfolio of evidence.
