GOV.UK - Sector-Based Work Academies

The Government introduced sector-based work academies to help those who are ready for work and receiving benefits to secure employment. They are designed to help meet immediate and future recruitment needs as well as to recruit a workforce with the right skills to sustain and grow your business. A sector-based work academy can last up to six weeks and has three key components:

  • Pre-employment training - relevant to the needs of your business and sector
  • A work experience placement - of great benefit to both the individual and a business
  • A guaranteed job interview

The key feature of sector-based work academies is that they offer a flexible approach and can be adapted to meet the needs of your business.

For further information visit GOV.UK Sector Based Work Academies
