Here at Scholars School System we take great pride in providing the best education to all our students, we believe an education is not only made up of the knowledge and the theoretical basis of learning, a successful career is built on both experience and knowledge. Providing our students with opportunities to enhance employability skills and experience the world of work is a great way to help them climb up the career ladder. Placement Opportunities will not only help students put theory into practise but be a great milestone for future careers and aspirations. Our vision is to be the leading education providers for progression and employability in order to achieve this we build a strong foundation in the transition from education to work, creating a stimulating learning environment for our students that can help to promote an outstanding work ethic.

Mustard tree

Mustard Tree is a charity that provides a wide range of services to people facing multiple obstacles in life, especially those facing homelessness and destitution. We have the Food Club as an alternative to a foodbank, allowing our service users the dignity of choice. Similarly, we have the Community Shop, which is open to the public, but we also provide vouchers to those that need them. We run support services and triage out of our reception, and we host the Street Engagement Hub on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Street Engagement Hub gathers multiple organisations in one place for rough sleepers to access, including probation services, drug and alcohol services, St John’s Ambulance, Rough Sleepers Team and lots of others. We also run clubs and classes in everything from English Language and Computer Confidence to Art, Textiles and Creative Writing.

Placements can be tailored to the interests and needs of the student, but on a basic level will involve a combination of first-hand service provision to clients (Food Club, reception), experience of the running of a charity in this sector (reception, help desk), shadowing of professionals (if appropriate) (Street Engagement Hub and Mustard Tree support workers), and planning and delivering sessions for our clubs and classes (Art, Textiles, Creative Writing, Computer Confidence, Job Club, English Conversation Club, Song Club).
