Aspirations is a programme of study specifically developed for 17 – 24 year olds on the autism spectrum, delivered at Weston Bay.
Many of the students on the course already have academic or vocational qualifications, but have found accessing employment, higher education or independent living very difficult.
Aspirations allows students to explore career options, develop core skills and undertake valuable work placements in order to make successful transitions into employment, university and independence.
Through working with our specialist tutors and support staff, students are taught skills and strategies to develop their self-confidence, employability and social skills, allowing them to successfully progress to the next step in their career path.
Students can choose from the following individualised programmes:
- Employability and job club
- Independent living and social development
- Work placements
- English and maths
- Study skills
- Travel training.
"The Aspirations course is helping me learn how to write CVs and fill out applications and prepare for job interviews"
No formal entry requirements are needed within Foundation learning. All learner’s are considered on an individual basis and matched to a course that is best placed to meet their needs and support their outcomes and move them towards their aspirations.
