FE Careers is the largest online job advertising site for Welfare to Work jobs, Work Programme jobs & employability
FE Careers has a strong job advertising presence in employability and skills, with advertisers recruiting for employability as far back as 2003.
The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) introduced The Work Programme in October 2010. It replaced previous structures for unemployed people and treats them as individuals, whilst allowing providers greater control over support to individual needs. Programme providers are paid from the benefits saved from getting people into work.
Many of these national work-based training providers advertise their Work Programme jobs through FE Careers and deliver as either Work Programme Prime providers or work very closely with "prime providers". Click here for a full list of providers.
Our sister site FENews.co.uk tracks the developments and availability of Work Programme jobs, complete with video interviews with Lord Freud (Minister of Welfare Reform DWP) and Chris Grayling Minister of State (Employment), Work and Pensions.
FE News features regular articles from the strategists who have helped shape the Welfare to Work sector, such as Fran Parry of Inclusion. Other providers regularly share their strategies on the Work Programme through the site such as JHP Training’s CEO Jim Chambers and his vision for integrating employability & skills, JHP’s Caroline Groom on how training providers can make a difference in Welfare to Work.
