Employability & Work Skills
NEW FOR 2021/22: Level 1 Award in Managing Uncertainty and Self-Resilience for Employability. Developed in response to the pandemic and intended to boost self-esteem and self-awareness for employment during times of change, this qualification aims to ensure learners are in the best possible frame of mind when returning to daily life, helping to kickstart the economy across your region and beyond.
We have also launched indicative content for all units, new learner workbooks and tutor PowerPoints to support delivery and learner progression and we have a new user-friendly Employability resource mapping document!
Our Employability qualifications are designed to help learners develop skills, attributes and values which will enable them to take steps into work or work placements. These qualifications are designed to meet the needs of employers as well as employees, and therefore help learners not only to secure employment, but to remain within it.
Who are these qualifications for?
These qualifications are ideal for learners who are unemployed and looking to return to the workplace. The learners may be lacking confidence and need to demonstrate work readiness, through improving sector-specific skills, transferable skills which help workplace integration, understand relationships in the workplace and expectations within a working environment.
The Employability Qualifications are suitable for inclusion in Study Programmes and Traineeships as they teach a range of skills valued by employers. Many of our centres also use these qualifications with ESOL learners and SEND.
