Pathway to Work and Independent Living Programme at York College

Course description

You will study English and maths. You will also undertake a work placement or work related learning. Your main programme will include some or all of the following:

Develop job search and research skills 
Be involved in planning, setting up and participating in an ‘Enterprise’ activity 
Develop your independent living skills

Deal with problems in your daily life

Some students have a personalised programme which involves studying some of the Pathways units as well as vocational options such as IT or Catering, or studying part of their programme with other providers. These personalised programmes are negotiated and finalised during application and induction and are set up to meet very specific needs. 

Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements. You will have an interview and you will undertake some initial assessments in English and maths. You should be able to show you could benefit from the programme and be fully committed.

Students can enrol on to the programme at Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3 or Level 1. They may also be considered for a bespoke, personalised, non accredited programme. The programme is suitable for students who have no prior qualifications but, if you have already achieved some, you must show you can make progress and work towards the next level.

Future opportunities

Next steps could be: progression onto a higher level within the Pathway to Work and Independent Living Programme; progression on to Entry Level or Level 1 Vocational programmes or further training including open/supported employment.
