There are currently 70 students in the Foundation Learning department at One, all of whom have Special Educational needs, some of which are very complex whilst others require small amounts of support to engage fully in their learning and daily live. They have the same hopes, dreams and aspirations as all students at One and we endeavour to find them stepping stones to support their goals, those employers who engage with us quickly find our students not only meet the skill sets required in the workplace but positively contribute to their business in a variety of unexpected ways.
To ensure we continue to offer our students a broad range of appropriate work experience placements, we are hosting a breakfast networking event on 7th March. After a short presentation, current business partners will have the opportunity to informally discuss some of the Benefits and Barriers of offering a work placement.
A work placement offer could be as little as one day per year for one student and all our students can be supported by our staff during the placement. If you would like to be involved with this event please email FLadmin@suffolkone.ac.uk
