'Routes to Industry' is designed for students with a learning difficulty and/or disability, who are in receipt of an EHCP and have a strong desire to study within the wider college on a vocational pathway.
Applicants ideally will be working at or close to Entry Level 3, in order that students can progress from ‘Routes to Industry' to a suitable vocational course of their choosing.
On the course students will develop their confidence and independence in order to maximise their chances of a successful progression onto a vocational course at The Manchester College.
Students will explore what courses are available at the college, and students will have the opportunity to participate in classes within those departments. This will allow the students and staff chance to assess the suitability of those courses and check if they are realistic progression destinations. If students display the correct aptitude, then they will have the option to transfer onto a vocational course within the first year of study.

Work Experience is a vital part of the course and you will be supported in finding a work placement relevant to your study.

The course will predominantly be assessed through a portfolio and via evidence gained whilst experiencing sessions within vocational sessions.
Students may also complete assessments in Functional Skill maths and English.

This programme is designed to progress students into the wider college, and provides a foundation which increases the chance of successful progression into other courses within TMC.
