Skills for Work Service

This service provides schools and the community with a single point of contact for:

  • apprenticeships
  • traineeships
  • study programmes
  • work experience
  • careers advice
  • adult and community learning

The service builds links between businesses and education to deliver enterprise and bespoke programmes for primary schools through to adult learning. All of our programmes incorporate employability skills and careers education information and guidance (CEIAG).

Our staff are highly qualified in all aspects of teaching, health and safety and CEIAG and, as one of the largest employers, we are able to offer a significant number of work placements ourselves.

We have a database of over 3000 local and national employers and voluntary organisations to meet local needs for work experience and employer engagement programmes, including specialist placements for learners with disabilities and learning difficulties (LDD), ESOL and pre-16 vocational programmes. Over 10,000 children, young people and adults benefit from our service each year in partnership with over 17 community organisations.
