There is engagement with at least one local employer either face-to-face or via our digital employer engagement programme, Let’s Do Business.

CV development is included to ensure learners include all of their skills, experience and personal attributes. They also receive a folder to keep all evidence and materials in e.g. photos of participation.

The wellbeing of learners is assessed both pre and post-course with follow up on any issues identified.
