About Route2Work

Route2Work is for young people aged 16 to 24 who have an Education and Health Care Plan.

It aims to help them build confidence and skills through a mixture of: 

  • work placements
  • functional skills
  • vocational learning

It offers a personalised programme designed around the learner to: 

  • help them achieve their future goals
  • provide the strong foundations that will benefit them as they prepare for working life and independent living

The programme runs over an academic year - from September through to July.

Learners attend 4 days a week, 9.30am to 3.30pm.

One to one support

Route2Work provides a safe and friendly environment at Jarrow Hall.

Students are supported by a professional and trusted team of staff who help students make personal and academic progress.

Each young person will be allocated a qualified support worker who will provide one to one support both in the classroom and on placement.

Learners will work towards and achieve:

  • animal care
  • horticulture
  • work placements
  • functional skills
  • enrichment activities
  • personal social development

How to apply

Before you apply, taster sessions will be organised for you to visit the college and get a feel for the course.

Groundwork will then work with you to develop an individual transition programme with you before the induction to make sure you are supported into enrolment.
