Course Content

Selected Homewood students will be invited to join this new, full time programme. The main short term objective is to prepare these young people for a full time apprenticeship or employment with training. The long term aim is to make these young people more employable and improve their opportunities in the future.

The programme will consist of either two or three days in school to work on English, Maths and a Customer Service Level 2 qualification and the remaining two or three days at a work placement. Ideally the work placement would be linked to the student’s future careers aspiration. Time spent in the work placement would help develop the essential transferable employability skills that all employers are looking for.

This programme will be open to Homewood students who have not achieved a level 4 or above including English and/or Maths.

Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre will work with the student, their parents/carers and local employers to find the most appropriate work placement. All work placements will be Health and Safety checked and all will have Employers Liability Insurance.

In addition Homewood School staff will make regular visits to monitor each work placement to ensure our students are being fully supported and making a positive contribution to the place of work.
