Pre-Apprenticeship Programme at Bath College

Course description

Are you 16-24 years of age with good academic abilities? Do you have any autistic spectrum conditions and are eligible for an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan? Do you need help obtaining and retaining employment?


Our supported employment programme could help you secure an apprenticeship or employment.

Course content

This programme is aimed at young autistic people aged 16-24 and resident in B&NES, who have the potential to achieve at least a full level two qualification, but who lack the interpersonal and employability skills to be accepted onto an apprenticeship scheme.

Entry requirements

To be successfully accepted onto the scheme, you must also be able to work five days a week and make your own travel arrangements.


This innovative programme will tailor an individual learning programme that is delivered in the workplace.


You will be visited weekly by a tutor who will create an individual learning plan to help develop your employability and interpersonal skills, and identify future employment and learning goals.


Further support in the work place will be provided by an experienced job coach who will work with you and your employer to identify the specific job tasks and how they will be completed. The job coach support will gradually reduce over the period of the placement until you are able to work comfortably with your work placement provider independently of support.

How to apply

If you want to apply for this course, you will need to contact Bath College directly.
