Ready for the way to work?

With job vacancies hitting a record high of 1.22 million between September & November 2021, the Government has recently announced that recipients of Universal Credit will be required to job search beyond their preferred sector after 4 weeks on benefits instead of the current 3 months, otherwise they will face sanctions.

If “reasonable efforts” are not made to obtain employment, or job offers are turned down, claimants could see their payments reduced. This jobs push or ‘Way to Work’ is intended to move half a million job seekers into work by the end of June 2022.

Through our ‘Ready for Work’ programme, in partnership with Axia Solutions, Barnet Southgate College & Kendal College, Cidori is well placed to continue helping unemployed or low wage earners into new career paths – in sectors such as Construction and Teaching Assistants, via funded pre-employment programmes.

In the 2020-2021 academic year we helped more than 1000 of our partnership learners into employment, over 91% of course candidates are offered job interviews at the conclusion of their courses and overall course success rates exceed 90%.

Watch our ‘Ready for Work’ video below to see how this works and get in touch to work in partnership with us as we help more people into sustainable jobs.
