The Return to Work Academy
Updated: Sep 30, 2020
We have been working closely with a Security Training Academy called Priority Security Academy Ltd to create this new project. Collaborations like this are so important for the industry.....
The Return to Work Academy.
Unemployment figures are on the rise. The current situation has affected this as a growing number of people are not actively looking for work plus the number of available vacancies has significantly dropped. Many adults (people aged 19 or over) who are unemployed will rush to find quick employment without looking at career options first. This means most will end up in temporary work as a quick fix and be in the same situation months later. A large percentage of unemployed adults are not aware that there is funding out there to help them boost their skills, gain qualifications and improve their working situations. No matter how old a person is, it is never too late for self-development and we know there is untapped funding out there that will support this.
SBA Project and Priority Security Academy have come together to create a fantastic, collaborative project that will help Adults (aged 19 or over) who are unemployed gain sought after qualifications, vital employability skills, a standout CV and a route into permanent employment. We are working with many other key organisations within the sector. With the resources to deliver our services on a face to basis or online there are no limits as to who we can reach across England. The combined services provided will see an individual through the whole process of finding the right training, delivery, exam, preparing to work, job seeking, interview and then employment.
Smart Business Assistance and Priority Security Academy are working with Training Providers, Funding Providers, Employers and Unemployed Adults to help bridge the gap between these group of business and unemployed Adults to improve not only employment figures but the quality of candidates applying for work.
Our aim is to be THE One Stop Shop support service in the Adult Education and Employment sector.
Other contributors to the project already include The Shaw Trust, DWP and East Northants Council.
