PARTNERSHIPS

At Get SET Academy, we don’t operate on our own. We have ties with hundreds of other organisations across the country.

Our Partners

Examples of our many public, private and voluntary-sector partners include:

 

 

  • Businesses
  • Colleges and other training agencies
  • Councils
  • Charities and social enterprises
  • Community and faith-based groups
  • Awarding bodies
  • Associates – experts in various fields

 

They are all important, for varying reasons.

Businesses & the Private Sector

We work with over 700 small and medium sized businesses in the North West alone; companies that we help with workforce training, recruitment and coaching for their owners or senior managers.

In return, many of them engage with us on employability programmes, providing work experience placements, giving talks or taking part in mock interviews to give candidate valuable practice. They also give us a valuable insight into the demands of local labour markets, so we can tailor our training support to meet real needs and give people the best possible chances of securing lasting employment.

The Public Sector

Local councils and organisations such as JobCentre Plus are amongst some of our most important clients because they fund and manage a range of employability programmes.

 

Colleges, too, are important to us because we may refer our learners to them for follow-on courses, or colleges may refer people to us. It’s a two-way process that maximises the support that we can direct to the people we support.

Third Sector Organisations

The third sector – that is to say voluntary, community and faith-based organisations – also work with us in mutually beneficial ways. They are often employers in their own right and they share many of the same goals as us in terms of improving people’s life chances. They may partner with us on projects to provide venues or added expertise, or simply to help us engage more effectively with people at a local community level.

Awarding Bodies

We offer a range of accredited courses, so it’s important that we work well with the awarding bodies who develop them. Ongoing reporting and assessments help to ensure that we continue to deliver training to the highest standards, and the backing of these bodies ensures that people gain qualifications that are recognised and in tune with the needs of modern employers.

Local Enterprise Partnerships

Local Enterprise Partnerships are another important stakeholder group for us. Spanning both public and private sector interests, they develop economic growth strategies that reflect the needs and priorities of local planners, employers and residents. Recognising their invaluable work, we will always ensure that our support is informed by – and aligned with – their local priorities.

Associates

Many of our trainers are in-house staff but where additional expertise is required, we are fortunate to be able to call upon a host of technical experts. These associates cover a broad range of sectors and disciplines, and they undergo their own continuous professional development through their respective professional institutes.
