Over 3,400 18 to 24-year-olds have completed our Work Ready training programme since 2014 and more than half have gone on to further education, apprenticeships or jobs. This year, we transformed the programme to support jobseekers of all ages and took the usual face-to face training online to overcome Covid-19 restrictions and bring benefit to a larger number of jobseekers.
In addition to those who attended our Work Ready training programme, over 2,800 people attended live webinars on subjects like how to write a great CV, interview well, and stand out throughout the application and selection process. More than 600 have viewed our webinars with expert partners LinkedIn Learning and Apprentice Nation. Over 850 people joined introductory skills webinars that we ran in partnership with Jobcentre Plus to help them keep up with the surge in demand from new jobseekers.
