Employability Courses and Programmes
Following the introduction and success of our employability programmes, Profound has experienced considerable demand from employers looking for occupationally trained candidates to fulfil vacancies.
The success of our employability courses has lead to considerable growth within our recruitment department. We are also working closely with work programme providers and Job centre plus offices, locally and nationally where we receive referrals to train and place people into work.
Head of Employability, commented: "The overwhelming success of our employability courses has naturally brought employers, job centres and even work programme providers to us. We are experiencing considerable demand from employers across the North East and nationally enquiring about our trained occupationally competent learners. Our pre-employability courses provides learners with a clear competitive edge at interviews whilst equipping them with the skills relevant to their employment".
We have secured employment for a considerable amount of our learners within warehouse and logistics and expect this to continue and are currently in discussions with leading heavyweight employers across the country as we look to service their recruitment needs.
This 'rounded employment package' is proving to be very popular with employers and fully meets the governments agenda for implementing people into work. Having an occupationally trained employee at the outset has clear positive results and is impacting positively on their business while improving staff retention levels.
Profound have established a proven track record in successful pre-employability skills & training.
When delivering a pre-employability training for one of our partners Profound saw over 145 learners undertake two quality training programmes. Firstly we delivered pre-employability followed by sector specific occupational training.
This pre-employability training resulted in 75 learners securing full time employment. Profound are rapidly building on this success, with the growth of a Profound employment arm.
Our pre-employability training provides candidates with a clear competitive edge at interviews whilst equipping them with the skills relevant to their employment. Our pre-employability team have successfully developed a comprehensive portfolio of employers wishing to access the quality 'free employment service' Profound propose to provide.
