Our Young People Courses and Jobs Referral Network

Here at Learners Progress College we thrive on delivering exceptional, engaging and encouraging learning. Our team promotes a welcoming environment for all students regardless of their educational backgrounds. Diversity and equality is a key aspect within Learners Progress College campus, promoting the health and well-being of all students that we support.

We understand that not all students can learn and develop in the same way as others. With engaging one-to-one support, regular personal advisor appointments and a supportive team, we ensure that no student is left behind.

Within the classroom, it is important for us that every student receives the education and the career progression that they deserve and therefore we take dedicated time to cater for their individual needs.

Our Partnership Work within our Courses and Jobs Network

We have two progression pathways for students who are referred through to us.  We strongly believe in partnership work as it provides avenues for young people to benefit from professionals and experts that share the same passion and values in terms of enabling and facilitating progression. 

Support from within our network

With a wide range of courses, career pathways and progression routes we can cater for learners with the support of training organisations and employers who are registered and approved scheme members within our network.  

How it works

  • Once a learner is referred through to us, the learner is assigned to a Courses and Jobs Support Specialist
  • The learner will then attends an Information Advice and Guidance session(IAG) with the assigned Support Specialist
  • The learner will then subsequently be supported on a programme suitable to cater for his or her needs within our college or within the network. An individual progression plan(IPP) will be created to be actioned moving forward. A copy of the IPP will be sent to the referring organisation if required. 
  • The referring organisation can keep in contact throughout the process and also request for a progression report to be sent monthly

Our Pre-Apprenticeship Programme

Firstly, our pre-apprenticeship route prepares students for an apprenticeship or normal paid work.  We are passionate about learners accessing high quality work placements and ensuring that hands on, work experience is undertaken as a core element of the training. Not only can students receive invaluable skillsets and personal experience in a high quality work placement, but they are also prepared to potentially walk away with all the qualifications they need, including GCSE Maths and English or Functional Skills if required. 

Progression to University Programme

Secondly, we provide a pre-university route which expands and develops learners’ abilities both academically and personally to be ready and prepared for university. Personal development is essential before attending any new course. We ensure that this progression route is supportive, swift and stress-free. With essential qualifications, increasing UCAS points to the required amount and supporting learners, we ensure their chosen university pathway is both successful and relevant.

Our Partnership Work within our Courses and Jobs Network

Referrals may include:

  • Learners who are struggling to continue within a large classroom environment
  • Learners leaving a programme and need support to continue engaging academically and economically with bespoke support within a greater support network
  • Learners who prefer to continue their education in a more hands on format such as within the working environment.
  • Learners who need to resit their GCSEs or Functional Skills
  • Learners who are short UCAS points and need support with additional top up qualifications
  • Learners who are leaving care or already care leavers

The list above is not exhaustive, therefore, we are happy to take referrals even if they are not indicated here.   

Frequently Asked Questions regarding pre-apprenticeship training:

  1. What is the purpose of a pre-apprenticeship?

Pre-Apprenticeships are similar to traineeships. These are programmes designed to support progression on to an apprenticeship. A learner may need support with self-confidence to be effective in a given job role. A learner may also need support with Math and English. A learner may need support with pre-employment training and preparation. A leaner may certainly struggle on an apprenticeship if  not ‘job ready’. A pre-apprenticeship training programme will support progression into paid employment.

It is important to note that our pre-apprenticeship training programme comes with paid work placement occasionally.
