What Our Students Say

“So the tutors are great for a number of reasons – they’re casual, you don’t feel like you’re being forced to do anything that’s uncomfortable, they’re not strict, they’ll have a laugh with you if you want to and they know how to get stuff done when they need to if we’re on a bit of a time crunch, but they also know how to have a bit of fun and not put pressure on you – and they’re great, they’re always there to give you information if you need it for at-home tasks and they’re always on Google Hangouts to message you if you need anything and they get back to you really quickly.”

About Enterprise & Employability

Taught at Somerville House, our Enterprise & Employability courses are tailored to assist you in progressing to your chosen future, whether that is employment, an apprenticeship or vocational study. As part of your course, you will be given the opportunity to work on a range of projects that will enhance your skills in communication, teamwork and creative thinking, alongside other key personal development skills that will enhance your future prospects.

Each course includes an employability element – so as you increase your skills and develop your knowledge, you’ also prepared for entering the world of work. We focus on getting you experience working in real environments via a range of activities and events. We work with employers to arrange talks, workplace visits, live briefs and employability events – all geared to preparing you for your next steps.

If you’re wanting hands-on experience, to earn a wage while you learn and to gain a recognised qualification, consider an apprenticeship. We have a wide variety to choose from including marketing, community health and wellbeing, and project management.

Safeguarding

We are committed to making sure all students and staff are protected from harm. All staff are trained in safeguarding and child protection, and our dedicated Safeguarding team is on hand for advice and support. Don’t stay silent, we are here for you.
