Designed for any student who has learning difficulties and disabilities but wants to progress their learning and work skills, this Routes to Skills Entry Level 3 course is ideal for those who can follow instructions and routines.

On the course, students will get a number of vocational tasters to help them develop essential social awareness and working skills. They'll learn how to live independently and use public transport effectively, as well as focusing on personal care and presentation and surrounding health, safety and dangers.

With the opportunity to work in the Cube Café at The Manchester College, students will get to serve customers and use money in real-life situations. As students develop their skills and complete enterprise projects, they'll be working towards more and more independence, and have the ability to make positive decisions about their next steps.
