Transitions – Student destinations 

The Park College provides a curriculum and careers programme offering advice, work experience and contact with a range of employers. Students make informed choices and understand what they need to do to reach and succeed in their chosen career. Our students explore their options, discover and develop their interests and skills to achieve positive destinations. 

Our programme supports each student to establish their interests, skills, and aspirations. The college designs and delivers personalised programmes, ensuring their individualised work experience and careers programme matches their personal needs, skills, and interests. 

We aim to teach students the skills they need to be successful in their chosen destinations once they leave us. We offer guidance and support to all students and their families. We support and teach students how to research opportunities, complete applications and build a CV. We guide and support readiness for the next phase of their independent adult life such as education, training, internships, traineeships, or employment so that learners can make the transition successfully.

All students who have left The Park College after completing the Skills for Work or Off to Work courses have had positive outcomes. Students have gone on to either supported living or employment.
