The project will deliver bespoke training for individual workers as well as team/workplace courses that will assist in supporting the following themes as set out within the Welsh Governments Employability Plan.

  1. Providing an individualised approach to employability support. Individual workers will be supported by the project team, working with local workplace Union Learning Representatives, to assess learner needs and to source the best course to meet that need, ensuring value for money.
  2. Underlining the responsibility of employers to upskill their workers, support their staff and provide fair work. The project will support the delivery of courses that support Mindfulness, personal development and wellbeing as well as courses that are built around skills that help deliver the workers specific role. The project will also endeavour to track learner progress both in terms of levels of qualification and career progression, in conjunction with other unions, learning providers and other organisations.
  3. Responding to current and projected skills gaps. Although it will not be a primary project objective, the project team will review Regional Skills Partnerships’ LMI data and where possible align some of the projects programme of delivery to meet any identified demands within the sector.
  4. Preparing for a radical shift in the world of work. The project will also work with employers and learning providers to deliver on site learning to upskill workers to meet changes in digitisation. This will include ongoing development of the successful ‘iPad and tablet’ training, delivered through previous projects to DWP staff. We will also work with providers and employers to offer workers support when facing redundancy, relocation or moving to a new area of work. This will include CV writing, job search skills and interview techniques.
