Break down barriers for jobseekers and improve the service you provide

Unemployment is at an all time low, and although the looming spectre of Brexit is at the forefront of all our minds, the job market continues to offer increased opportunities for jobseekers. But is this an accurate picture for everyone?

There is still a disparity for those people with complex, and often multiple barriers to employment. We also expect that the focus for newly-commissioned programmes will continue to be those with the most complex barriers, especially jobseekers with health conditions and disabilities. Now more than ever, organisations like yours, need to establish a frontline workforce with a more advanced knowledge base and set of skills… and its easier than you think!

The new Employability Practitioner Apprenticeship Standard has been designed to help develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours of those helping people to address and overcome obstacles to secure suitable and sustainable employment.

What will this bring to your team?

The standard will help improve performance across the organisation, and can focus on and/or develop expertise in specific areas of a job role for example, in-work support, non-clinical behavioural change models. This is also a great opportunity to help develop colleagues that aspire to progress into managerial and/or Business Development functions or specialise in a particular area; for example, mental health, disability, etc.

Here at MAXIMUS Training we are delighted to offer this standard to all levy paying organisations across England.
