Get Ready for – Helping individuals enter a new industry

We have developed an online solution to support adults aged 19+ with training or reskilling by creating a bridge into or back into employment.

These short online courses called ‘Ready for’, are designed to help and support adults explore growth sectors and decide whether a career in one of these could be for them.

The first two courses cover social care and construction and are available on SmartScreen. 'Ready for' is available for public funding within traineeships, and as part of Adult Education Budget (AEB) Local Flexibility non-regulated provision.

  • 3-4 hour digital course for adults aged 19+ to understand what it’s like to work in the sector
  • Individuals will discover the breadth of jobs and opportunities in the sector, motivating them to succeed in their studies and build a career in the sector
  • Gain a real sense and flavour of what it’s like working in the sector and the skills, attitudes and behaviours employers are looking for when recruiting.
  • Individuals will complete a self-reflection task to see if they have what it takes to start a career in the sector
  • Receive job search tips from employers to help them stand out when they are ready to start looking for a job.
  • Earn a digital credential on completion of the course to showcase achievement and interest in working in construction or social care, share on social media, put on their CV.
