Support for providers working with unemployed adults Friday, June 22, 2012 - 16:30
NIACE has produced two useful guides for providers delivering skills for unemployed adults, which were launched at the Association of Employment and Learning Providers' (AELP) annual conference on 19 June.
The two guides are a result of the research NIACE undertook on behalf of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), into the provision of training for unemployed adults to identify practice that is both effective for learners and helpful in supporting providers adjusting to the new approach outlined in the Government's Skills Strategy, Skills for Sustainable Growth.
Rob Gray, NIACE Programme Officer, said:
"Skills provision for unemployed adults has never been more important. Skills allow people to escape the low pay, no pay cycle in which those with low skills can all too often find themselves trapped."
