Supported Routes to Employment (SuRE)

Course Overview

SuRE is a unique and innovative programme which offers people who have a diagnosed learning difficulty/disability (e.g. autism) the opportunity to be fully immersed in the work environment, with the support of a tutor and a job coach. As a SuRE intern, you will be provided with the opportunity to develop your interpersonal and employability skills, as well as your confidence in being in and around the work environment.

Who is the course aimed at?

SuRE is aimed at people aged 18 upwards who have strong academic abilities, have finished with their studies, are motivated to work, and have evidence of a diagnosed learning difficulty or disability. These individuals will have little or no work experience and will need to develop their workplace confidence, and employability and interpersonal skills in order to obtain and sustain employment.

What support will I get?

You will have regular access to your tutor, who will offer you regular 1 to 1 tutorials. As a Bath College student, you can also be referred to our Welfare team if you have any social or emotional support needs. Your tutor and a job coach will visit you and your employeer in the work place throughout your internship to make sure that your work placement is working for you. If you have an EHCP, then you may also have access to additional support (e.g. speech and language therapy, occupational therapy) depending on what is written into your EHCP.

What are the entry requirements?

You must be aged 18 to 24 years must have an EHCP, and referrals must be made through our external partners (e.g. Virgin Care) for anyone who doesn’t fall into this category. You must be eligible to work in England and are able to work 5 days a week, you must be able to travel independently, and you must be able to demonstrate that you can work at Level 1 at a minimum in English and maths (e.g. through evidence of previous academic achievement, or English and maths assessment as part of the interview process).

How will I learn?

Interns will learn key employability and interpersonal skills “on the job”, with the support of your employer, your tutor, and your job coach.
