It’s different for each person.

You will attend Functional Skills is 4 – 5 hours a week but your placement may differ depending on your confidence and needs. It may also depend on the amount of work your employer has to offer. For example, one person may work an 8 hour day but another may complete a 4 hour day.

You will work with your Work Coach and employer to find out the best working pattern to suit you and the business needs.

As well as this, the days you work may start as just 1 day a week to start with. This may then slowly increase as your confidence in your placement grows. By the end of the programme, we aim for you to be working full time. This will help prepare you for the world of work after the programme finishes.

The length of the day and the number of days you work are tailored to you and your placement.
