Supported Employments

Paid supported employment is Phoenix College’s aim for all leaving students. We aim for a smooth and supportive transition in to employment and independence. Please see ‘Access to work’ section for details on support with paid employment.

Access to work support: 
Access to Work could give you a grant to help pay for things like:
  • Specialist equipment and assistive software
  • Support workers, like a BSL interpreter, a job coach or a travel buddy
  • Costs of travelling to work, if you cannot use public transport
  • Adaptations to your vehicle so you can get to work
  • Physical changes to your workplace
Your workplace can include your home if you work from there some or all of the time. It does not matter how much you earn. If you get an Access to Work grant, it will not affect any other benefits you get and you will not have to pay it back.
