How Employers can Get Involved

You can change the lives of young people looking to get on the career ladder by inspiring them and nurturing their talent, giving them meaningful work experience and supporting them to grow in confidence and skills.

Our employer partnerships are a great way to support young people, many of whom may be working to overcome disadvantages in their lives.

It is also a great way to uncover new talent. We always take great care to match the right young people to the right organization to ensure everyone gets the most out of the time you spend together.

Opportunities for employers

We have international, national and local employer partners who have benefitted from working with young people. Talk to us today to find out how you can get involved with the resources you have. You can consider:

  • Offering work placements
  • Joining Dragon’s Den-style panels
  • Talking to learners about your company or industry
  • Mentoring and Interview preparation
  • Visiting young people in college to talk about your career and company
  • An idea of your own

The benefits of supporting young people

We are a company motivated by improving the lives and opportunities for people. Young people – in particular those who have faced disadvantages or struggled with traditional routes through education – can find so much confidence and happiness when provided with the right opportunities and support.

Your organization can motivate them to go further, support them to grow in confidence, learn employability skills, prepare for joining the workforce and boost their CV. All of which makes it more likely they will take positive next steps and pursue further education and training or secure employment.

Your company can be a part of their journey.

Talk to our dedicated employer relationships managers and we will work together to find the right opportunities for you.

    During my Traineeship, the support I received from Skills Training UK was excellent. I could tell they really care about their work and all their learners.
