Cidori works with Job Centre Plus, employers and specialist recruitment agencies across the country to get hundreds of people back into sustainable employment.

Covid-19 update 

Jobseekers can still train for their next career move during lockdown.

Our construction and supply chain & logistics training courses continue to be delivered online via Zoom. Sign up now for free three-week courses led by fully qualified tutors in the comfort of your own home!

We’ve also added personal resilience and perseverance training – recognising that workforces across the UK need to adapt to bounce back from this crisis better and stronger.

Putting careers back on track

We coordinate national delivery of pre-employment training, working at a local level to understand the employment and labour market conditions near you.

Employer led

All our pre-employment training programmes are designed to meet the specific requirements of local employers, bridging local skills gaps and matching people to real jobs. 

We offer industry accredited training courses, apprenticeship programmes, skills conditionality training referrals and sector-based work academies. Every course or programme we offer is delivered in partnership with Job Centre Plus and tailored to the needs of specific businesses across a wide range of sectors.  

Cidori’s pre-employment programmes are fully funded. They blend classroom-based learning and work-based experience and for the construction and rail sectors, a fast tracked free CSCS and PTS Card on successful completion. 

Working together

Cidori has dedicated teams across the country working with some of the most difficult to engage learners in many socially deprived areas. Our aim is to help remove barriers to employment, working within local communities to bring skills training to those who need it most. 

Our particular partnership model also helps industry partners engage with candidates that may previously have been unable to access their chosen industry. 

“I can’t praise Cidori enough for the way they run things…from helping me fill in my work search journal to everything they have done in supporting me to secure a decent job with a good future.”
