The employer role in this three sided relationship is the key to CCG College’s success in getting people into jobs. CCG College has a relationship with around 35 employers from whom it gets repeat business, usually working with 2-3 at any one time. It promotes this as ‘a free recruitment service’ in which it:
CCG College’s model can significantly increases an employer’s success rates.
For example, in a recent recruitment exercise with Chosen Care Group, 90% of those learners CCG College put forward were selected for interview and 92% of those interviewed were offered jobs.
Retention so far (3 months) has been 100%.
Provision of labour market relevant skills CCG College has an in-depth understanding of the sectors it works with and a particularly strong relationship within the Care Industry.
Our core programme is designed to meet the job entry standards defined by the relevant Sector Skills Council (e.g. the ‘common induction standards’ set by Skills for Care). As the key focus is on identifying and filling particular vacancies or clusters of vacancies, CCG College fine-tunes its pre-employment courses in discussion with the employer.
To quote a manager from Chosen Care Group, ‘many of CCG College’s pre-employment training modules can provide candidates with a qualification. For instance, candidates participating in CCG College’s delivery resulted in a level 1 qualification in Preparing to work in Health and Social Care. This in turn gives new carers an insight into what is expected within their job role”.
Achievement rate for qualifications in 1014/15 was 95%. CCG College’s pre-employment sector base training courses are part of a range of services aimed at increasing the employability of people who are not working. Individuals who are suitable for the target vacancy and who stand a good chance of securing a job offer after completing the customised training course are offered a place on the course.
Those that are not yet ready are offered preparation training. The pre-employment training varies in length according to the target vacancy, ranging from 2 to 4 weeks in length. Given that courses are linked to an employer’s recruitment process they are, of necessity, short with a rapid turn round.
