The course aims to enable individuals to think differently and increase their understanding of how they make decisions and raise their self-awareness. The course will also help to develop critical thinking skills and introduce tools and techniques to maintain wellness and enhance resilience.

Sector-based Work Academy Programmes

We are working, in partnership with Job Centre Plus and local employers, to provide the governments, Sector-based Work Academy Programmes (SWAPs for short). They are a short course of 21 hours usually spread over 2-3 weeks. Each one is tailored to an employer and their job vacancies; the employer will shortlist and interview from those attending. 

If you are unemployed and interested in joining a SWAP, please contact your nearest Job Centre Plus.

If you are an employer with a job vacancy and would like some support recruiting, please contact us.
