What is an
employability programme?

Employability programmes are free courses, usually funded by the government or your local council,

that are designed to help you get into employment. You’ll find all these programmes on the Skills Training Network.

How does it work?

The Skills Training Network allows you to browse programmes, read stories from previous participants, and make an application directly through our website.

You could be on the road to employment in just a few clicks.

How do I know if these programmes are for me?

Unlike college and university, you don’t need any qualifications to join an employability programme. 

There are all sorts of things that make you eligible to join a programme. For example, you might be leaving school without a place at college or uni; maybe you’ve experienced homelessness; or maybe you’ve been unemployed for a long time.

When searching for programmes, use the Eligible Groups filter to narrow down your search results and find a programme that’s right for you.

Things to know

Every programme page includes a big blue box that will give you more information about the programme’s eligibility criteria, course length, attendance pattern, group size and more.

All of this information is up-to-date but if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
