Work Skills

“Are you involved in providing training to support the progression of learners into work?”

Perhaps your programmes come under the heading of ‘work skills’, ‘foundation’, ‘traineeships,’ ’employability’ or ‘apprenticeships’?


We have created a suite of Work Skills courses which have been designed to give learners the skills they need to secure and sustain a job.

The video below will give you more insight into our Work Skills suite:

Appropriate to a wide range of learners and courses, these modules have been created to:

  • Support flexible delivery
  • Challenge learner assumptions
  • Standardise delivery
  • Help differentiation
  • Explain to learners why things need to be done
  • Enhance and enrich the existing curriculum
