Employability Pipeline Support

Thriving Communities offer those aged 16+ employability support and training through a staged 1 - 5 pipeline.   

Young people and adults are fully supported through these stages by one of our Thriving Communities Officers who will be with them throughout their journey and support them to create a personalised action plan to achieve their employment goals. 

Stage 1 - The programme gives young people and adults the opportunity to develop basic employability skills and build on their confidence through group activities, one to one support and accredited learning.

Stage 2 - The programme gives young people and adults the opportunity to develop their work experience and continue to support them to grow in confidence with a work placement, group work and accredited learning.

Stage 3 - The programme gives young people and adults the opportunity to develop their employability skills further and complete a work placement suitable to their vocational interest along with accredited learning.

Stage 4 - At this stage on the programme young people and adults, who are job ready, are supported to secure employment. We have a dedicated employer engagement team who work closely with local employers to support them to fill vacancies utilising the skills and experience of young people who are registered on our Positive Futures programme.

Stage 5 - Young people and adults who have progressed into employment are supported through our aftercare support.  Contact is made regularly throughout their first year in employment and provide support and guidance to help them sustain employment.
