Sector-based work academies

Sector-based work academies are a way to provide direct employment into the care sector. The scheme can help those who are ready to work, and receiving benefits, to secure employment. They are designed to help care employers meet immediate and future recruitment needs as well as recruiting a workforce with the right skills.

A sector-based academy can last up to six weeks and include the following:

  • Pre-employment training, including CV writing, interview techniques and workplace etiquette
  • Sector-based skills – depending on the available job roles, this will be training based around the organisation.
