Step Up, Stand Out

SUSO – Who do you want to be?

With our Step Up, Stand Out (SUSO) programme, we’ll get you on the path to an exciting new career.

Whatever your age, our FREE, rolling 10-week programme will prepare you for employment, an apprenticeship or further study. You will gain an Employability Skills qualification, experience life at Furness College and have ‘tasters’ in one of over 10 areas of the College, all in a safe and supportive environment.

You will spend half the week learning techniques to become a stronger candidate for employment and the rest of the week in one of the College’s state-of-the-art workshops or other facilities gaining up-to-date knowledge and skills.

The areas included in this programme that you can choose from are: Construction (Plastering, Painting and Decorating, Carpentry and Joinery, Brickwork), Catering and Hospitality, Early Years, Engineering (Fabrication, Pipework, Mechanical), Hair and Beauty, Health and Social Care, ICT, Media, Sport and Public Services. We also give you the opportunity to study Maths and English.

Does this sound like the path for you?

Ellie Schofield, Level 3 Media

“Success to me is getting an idea and making it happen. I enjoy being creative. On the 10-week Step Up, Stand Out course I enjoyed media the most. The media course is filled with new information and presented to me in ways I understand well. I have a lot of independence, but also access to a lot of support. I am doing well on assignments and my tutors have been a fantastic help.

“I have now been offered a place at the LMA in Liverpool, doing a Games Art and Animation course, which I believe is a fantastic opportunity for me. At Furness College, I am being well prepared in terms of the skills I need for my university course. I feel like my life is on track again.”
