Pre-Employment Training

InterLearn’s pre-employment training provides skills development across the UK for those that are either unemployed, or under threat of redundancy and wish to improve their career prospects. This service is designed the boost the skills of potential applicants and give them the training and qualifications required to successfully carry out a specific role in a wide spectrum of industry sectors.

This ensures candidates become upskilled in the specific behaviour, communication and knowledge required to exceed employers’ expectations as well as directly linking candidates to employers looking to hire. This recruitment assistance comes with dedicated work experience and collaborative interview panels.

We often arrange training in connection with Sector Based Work Academies (SBWA) which are a government-led initiative and one of the Get Britain Working measures and pioneered by the department for work and pensions. This training is coordinated between InterLearn and employers, alongside the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Candidates will typically be advised to attend an SBWA by the DWP as they feel it will increase employment prospects for the candidate.

The popular scheme focusses on specific training that employers have requested and has been designed by InterLearn. This is often a training programme of between one and three weeks which will be followed by a short period of work experience. Those who shine during this period are put forward to interview with the employer with the goal of receiving a job offer.
