The Bridge

The Bridge

The Bridge helps you develop the key skills, attitudes and behaviours that are required to be successful in life and work.  The programme will help you prepare for the next step you want to take – whether that’s a job, a higher level course at NHC, an apprenticeship or university.

Each section focuses on a different aspect of life. The three themes are:

  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Careers & Progression
  • Safety & Inclusion

Sessions are delivered by tutors from your vocational qualification department and by our team of success coaches. They include:

  • Group sessions and activities linked to your occupation of choice and more generally about life and work in the UK
  • One-to-one support from success coaches to help you reflect on your learning, your progress and your plans
  • Trips and visits to help you gain a really good understanding of working life
  • Careers talks from people doing a diverse range of jobs to give you real insight and inspire you
  • Exciting opportunities to work in the community
  • Work experience

As part of The Bridge you will complete a work experience placement. We enjoy strong relationships with hundreds of employers from across Hertfordshire and beyond. We work with them to ensure that we are teaching the workforce skills that they need now and in the future so we can give you the best possible preparation for work.
