Platform | Weston College

Platform

If you have a health condition, this course can support you into education and/or employment.

Taught over six weeks, this course covers a range of employability skills, social skills, English, maths and IT.

Platform is designed as a step back into the world of education and employment, and includes individual tutorials and mentoring.

You will learn about:

  • Managing transitions and adapting to change
  • Condition management
  • Budgeting and money management
  • Motivation and mind-set
  • Resilience and assertiveness
  • Target setting and working towards personal goals.

Throughout your time on this course, we will help you improve your confidence and develop a variety of ‘soft skills’, such as communication and teamwork, that employers value. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet new people, develop your English, maths and IT skills, and recognise your talents to find the ideal work for you.

At the end of the course, we are confident that you’ll be ready to either pursue an educational course or progress into the workplace, and we will also work to support you through this.

Platform is taught over 2.5 days a week for six weeks, and is assessed through activities and workbooks. Support is available for those who have learning barriers, physical disabilities and mental health difficulties.
