Oakwood Court College approached the project towards the end of 2021, looking for some support for their students. Alex Lloyd, Head of Work Experience, Internship & Employability at Oakwood, was connected with project partners, Vistry Partnerships and Coreus. As a result of this, we have had the following outcomes:
Joe from the college started his Transition 2 Site programme at the Vistry Alphington Academy in March. Towards the end of April 2022 he completed the course, and created a mini project as well! Joe is now set to continue with his learning and progress to the Level 1 Construction course for Vistry’s Pathway 2 Site programme where he will work with employers on site.
Poppy from the college has joined Coreus, who are working towards becoming a Disability Confident Employer, for a term’s work placement from April onwards.
Alex Lloyd quoted “I just wanted to say how grateful we are at Oakwood Court College for the support you have offered us. Personally, I was new to the role of Head of Employability, Internships and Work Experience in Oct last year and the connections and doors you have opened for us have given some of our students fantastic opportunities.”
