Embedding employment skills

Embedding employment skills

We help clients develop and deliver further education and apprenticeships programmes that seamlessly combine employment workplace skills with the subject matter – delivering better, more relevant learning.


Building in critical skills

Employment skills are needed for almost every role – we help learning providers build these into their courses, learning programmes and apprenticeships.

Creating better employees

It’s a core requirement that learners take on board much broader skills than the subject matter alone. We help providers embed essential workplace skills into their curriculum – not just the core maths, English and digital skills, but also other essential skills such as problem solving, customer service, attendance standards, communications, critical thinking, working in teams – and more. We help our clients to develop better employees – people with a more rounded, enriched set of skills, who are better prepared for employment.

Preparing people for the next step

Having the right skills isn’t always enough for learners to take the step into work – we help providers enable their learners to shine in a competitive market.

Better preparation for life

Learning providers aren’t just teaching a subject – they’re preparing people for work. We help them to create and deliver learning programmes which do this, by embedding career guidance, CV preparation skills and interview skills into the learning process. We help them cater for learners from a wide range of backgrounds – for example, helping the long-term unemployed, those who have been in prison or refugees from another country.

Helping education providers deliver more

We help education providers to deliver a stronger, more rounded curriculum that delivers measurably better results.

An end-to-end service

We help education providers improve every stage of their planning, delivery and quality assurance processes. After all, it’s not all just about ‘better learning programmes’ – it’s also about more effective planning, more cost-efficient delivery and putting in place more meaningful measurements processes. Our experience implementing best practice across a wide range of education providers helps our clients to change more quickly and with fewer missteps.
