THE WORLD OF WORK

As part of your programme you will be supported to engage with the world of work. This can sound frightening but our specialist staff will help you every step of the way. We offer a range of impartial advice on career opportunities as well as a range of in-college support.

A key part of the study programme at Fairfield is learning about the world of work and the skills that enable you to access jobs that interest you. You will gain confidence through accessing work experience at Fairfield and through work placements linked to your EHCP outcomes.

Partnership Working

We work with a range of organisations and businesses across Wiltshire and the South West.

We are part of the Swindon and Wiltshire Careers Hub and also part of the Swindon and Wiltshire Enterprise Adviser Network .

We have a specialist Information Advice & Guidance and Careers Lead that works closely with all learners and also a network of external careers professionals that work collaboratively to provide impartial careers advice to all learners.

We work closely with Wiltshire Employment Support Network too and offer programmes of study that lead to internships and pre-internship courses based in real-work situations.
