Delivery:

We have a selection of a venue within the communities of ethnic minorities groups, located close to the local job centre and travel to work areas. This venue complies with all legislation for disability access and has comfortable surroundings with access to toilets and kitchen areas. Travel costs will be provided; all stationery will be provided along with refreshments such as drinks and snacks. ‘Additional learning support’ resources are also available.

Progression towards/into employment:

There is evidence of a growing need for more transferrable skills in the work force and not just a qualification. These transferrable skills are extremely valuable skills to have, but first the client must understand how they can contribute to this. For example: What skills do they already have and what can be developed? It is also noted that, the need to have interpersonal skills and motivation to work is essential long before interview stage. This evidence is based on performance data of 5 years plus experience of offering this and similar training courses in the adult sector of learning and this specific client group. It is our aim to provide support to clients, allowing them to develop those skills in a time bound and specific way before the end of the course and they will have identified a further event or course to attend in the future.

Performance offer/cost benefits analysis:

We forecast that:

  • 100% of participants will complete a life skills initial assessment with the results available for both client and Job Centre Personnel
  • 100% of participants will complete an action & work plan identifying further resources for motivation, resilience, sociability, professionalism, organisation, initiative, job search, interview technique and workplace behaviours

Achievement measurements and outcomes:

  • 100% of participants will gain multiple social justice outcomes
  • 100% of participants will complete a time bound specific action and work plan, also completing the course

We are ready, willing and able to provide verifiable detailed evidence of our previous performance data including all DWP/JCP requirements relating to start & outcome ratios, KPI’s, social justice outcomes, sustainability etc. (as required).

Programme performance management, ensuring achievements are recorded:

Client information is recorded at start and throughout the duration to notify and inform the mapping and progress of everyone who attends a course and is registered as a learner at our centre. We use a safe data protection system and we audit information each month.

We can provide and track all clients who attend and monitor their performance when with us. We gather feedback and discuss course content with all our clients to help improve our service and add to our reports for compliance visits if needed. We use our data system to extrapolate management information to continuously evaluate our performance delivery, quality, compliance and contractual KPI’s.

This will allow them to identify further support or courses to attend in consultation with the clients, local JCP office depending on the work plan.

Delivery:

We have a selection of a venue within the communities of ethnic minorities groups, located close to the local job centre and travel to work areas. This venue complies with all legislation for disability access and has comfortable surroundings with access to toilets and kitchen areas. Travel costs will be provided; all stationery will be provided along with refreshments such as drinks and snacks. ‘Additional learning support’ resources are also available.

Progression towards/into employment:

There is evidence of a growing need for more transferrable skills in the work force and not just a qualification. These transferrable skills are extremely valuable skills to have, but first the client must understand how they can contribute to this. For example: What skills do they already have and what can be developed? It is also noted that, the need to have interpersonal skills and motivation to work is essential long before interview stage. This evidence is based on performance data of 5 years plus experience of offering this and similar training courses in the adult sector of learning and this specific client group. It is our aim to provide support to clients, allowing them to develop those skills in a time bound and specific way before the end of the course and they will have identified a further event or course to attend in the future.

Performance offer/cost benefits analysis:

We forecast that:

  • 100% of participants will complete a life skills initial assessment with the results available for both client and Job Centre Personnel
  • 100% of participants will complete an action & work plan identifying further resources for motivation, resilience, sociability, professionalism, organisation, initiative, job search, interview technique and workplace behaviours

Achievement measurements and outcomes:

  • 100% of participants will gain multiple social justice outcomes
  • 100% of participants will complete a time bound specific action and work plan, also completing the course

We are ready, willing and able to provide verifiable detailed evidence of our previous performance data including all DWP/JCP requirements relating to start & outcome ratios, KPI’s, social justice outcomes, sustainability etc. (as required).

Programme performance management, ensuring achievements are recorded:

Client information is recorded at start and throughout the duration to notify and inform the mapping and progress of everyone who attends a course and is registered as a learner at our centre. We use a safe data protection system and we audit information each month.

We can provide and track all clients who attend and monitor their performance when with us. We gather feedback and discuss course content with all our clients to help improve our service and add to our reports for compliance visits if needed. We use our data system to extrapolate management information to continuously evaluate our performance delivery, quality, compliance and contractual KPI’s.

Progression towards/into employment:

There is evidence of a growing need for more transferrable skills in the work force and not just a qualification. These transferrable skills are extremely valuable skills to have, but first the client must understand how they can contribute to this. For example: What skills do they already have and what can be developed? It is also noted that, they need to have basic skills for any business and motivation to work is essential long before any interview stage. This evidence is based on performance data of 5 years plus experience of offering this and similar training courses in the adult sector of learning and this specific client group. It is our aim to provide support to clients, allowing them to develop those job related skills in a time bound and specific way before the end of the course and they will have identified a further course to attend in the future.

  • 100% of participants will complete a life skills initial assessment with the results available for both client and Job Centre Personnel
  • 100% of participants will complete an action & work plan identifying further resources for motivation, resilience, sociability, professionalism, organisation, initiative, job search, interview technique and workplace behaviours

  • 100% of participants will gain multiple social justice outcomes
  • 100% of participants will complete a time bound specific action and work plan, also completing the course
