Courses coming soon…
We’re continually responding to the training & career needs as well as employment opportunities that get fed back to us across the country via our Employment Managers and Employer partners.
For this reason we’re developing with our training & funding partners the courses needed to help get you back into work – find out more and register now for these courses that are coming soon:
Putting careers back on track
Working in partnership with quality training & funding providers like Axia Solutions, Cidori coordinates national delivery of pre-employment training, working at a local level to understand the employment and labour market conditions near you.
“Our partnership work with Cidori brings together the strength of two quality conscious providers to deliver robust training to learners. The focus is on genuine personal development with a view to getting people back into the workplace.” Paula Rowland – Managing Director, Axia Solutions
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 or other referral agencies and is 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 or on-line learning and work-based experience.
For our courses in construction and rail, a fast tracked free CSCS (see Qualcard below) or PTS (Rail) Card is included on successful completion.
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.
Fast forward your CSCS Card…
We understand that when our Construction skills learners pass their CSCS test, getting their CSCS ‘green card’ quickly is important – without the card they simply cannot get onto a Construction site.
So, we’ve developed ‘Qualcard’– obtained via an App, this electronic version provides instant access to the CSCS card after the test is passed.
No waiting for the card to arrive – fast forward to receipt and getting into work – job done.
When your course ends…

“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.”
