Course Overview
This programme is a partnership between Project Search, ASDA and Coleg Cambria to support students in their transition into the workplace and learn marketable skills for employment.

This course is a one year internship programme, supporting learners to gain employment within in a retail setting at ASDA, Queensferry. This programme is five days a week in the workplace, working in the store, experiencing different aspects of the retail departments and learning valuable employability skills that lead to a rewarding career. Students have classroom sessions within the week, based on site to underpin skills and knowledge and ensure they have the skills they need to succeed.

An Employability mentor is on site throughout the programme to ensure support and guidance is on hand, leading to working independently within the ASDA team.
Each student has an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) that records their personalised goals and targets. Students receive regular 1:1 support from their personal tutor and transitions officer to review their progress and support within the placement. Individualised targets ensure progress toward Long Term destinations. A relevant qualification or units may also be achieved whilst on programme.
This programme is designed for learners with learning disabilities and/or difficulties who require support to enter into paid employment. It is suitable for learners progressing from ILS Programmes. This programme is based on site at ASDA where the majority of the programme is practical work experience. New students undertake a comprehensive initial assessment and induction before progressing to an individualised work experience programme linked to their specific targets and aspirations. Learners suited to this course will have an Education plan (Learning Skills Plan or Education Health Care Plan) which details their additional learning needs.

Learners will need to be able to travel independently to work placements.
The desired outcome of the internship is paid employment.
Some courses may require kit lists to be purchased. Please see attached kit list for further information.
