Funded Training | People Plus

Funded Training

We work with employers to provide fully-funded training solutions for your workforce, delivering skills to unemployed people in your local area based on your needs as an employer – in turn providing you with a hand-picked pool of talented candidates to fill your vacancies. We also offer training opportunities to your existing workforce, helping you to develop and retain a stronger more productive workforce. As the largest training provider in the UK, we are able to offer many employers access to our funding streams – meaning training is often FREE for employers.

So far, we’ve supported over 500,000 people since 2018 with the challenges they’ve faced in finding work and have found employment for nearly 200,000 people across the UK. We already work with a number of national and regional employers, as well as partnering with many Local Authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships to ensure that our training meets the needs of the jobs market and regional demands.

How we work

Our Social Recruitment Framework team put your training and development needs first – we can provide bespoke courses unique to you and your staffing needs, delivering skills where you need them the most to grow your workforce. This means you can handpick your future workforce without the need to pay for a recruitment service.

We continually look at ways to innovate and make things easy for employers and learners to access support – we took our latest innovation to the House of Commons, where we spoke about creating an employment superhighway click here to view the video.

We deliver courses across a variety of industries, from construction and customer service to health and social care and retail, including warehousing.
