If you want to engage employers in your training provision, outsource a skills support service or bring employers together to help young people into work – we can help!

We work with you, to get results for businesses and young people

We are experts at delivering skills and employability projects in partnership with training providers, trade associations and other stakeholders that want to reduce skills gaps and bridge the gap between employment and education. 

We pride ourselves on our ability to find new ways of working and speaking in a language employers understand. We always go the extra mile to help our clients to exceed their objectives and delivery targets.

We love to setup a 30-minute relaxed exploratory call to learn more about your work, understand your project and the barriers employers or young people are facing. 

Our projects and partnership work

We now use this experience to provide outsourced employer engagement services that fill placements across all T Level routes.

Managing local skills partnerships

We support councils and regional partnerships to manage and coordinate the local apprentice and graduate offer, so that it’s simple to understand and engaging for pupils, parents and employers.

Local skills partnership – Apprenticeships in Salisbury

Apprenticeships in Salisbury is a portal created to signpost young people to the local apprenticeship offer in the city of Salisbury. Unlike the Find an Apprenticeship Service – that shows a snapshop in time of current vacancies – the portal allows young people to see all the businesses that offer apprenticeships annually in their town, and know when and where to apply. We also manage the Salisbury Apprenticeship Fair each year, bringing 1,000 15-16 year olds to two colleges to meet the variety of apprentice employers across the region.

Admin services for skills sector

We provide outsourced customer service, admin and communication services for the skills sector. Keeping your stakeholders engaged in apprenticeships and skills.

Employability and careers support

We work with prime providers to deliver employability, skills bootcamp and careers services that gets people into work or onto the next stage of their career. This work often involves our links with employers. 

Kickstart Employability and careers support – DWP

Supplytrain provided Kickstart Scheme services to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Not only did we place 900 young people into work, but delivered all the employability support through monthly careers coaching sessions. This support helped every individual start, sustain and succeed in their placement, with the vast majority completing and moving into sustainable employment. We were awarded the SME Recognition Award by the DWP at the National Kickstart Awards for our service.

We are a social enterprise that helps employers to create fairer routes into work.
