Following a competitive tender, Seetec has won the bid with Liverpool Combined Authority to support the cities unemployed.
Over the next 12 months, the education and training specialist will be delivering their programme to individuals aged 19 and over as part of the adult education budget (AEB). Their work aims to help and support people across the Liverpool City Region to develop skills and move into employment.
Seetec will be focusing on employment training across sectors such as travel and tourism, retail, hospitality, construction and transport. As part of the programme, learners will have the opportunity to take part in work-based training and gain experience with local employers through work placements, employability training and on-the-job experience. Seetec will deliver its adult education activity in Liverpool city centre and in community hubs across the region.
Andi MacGregor, Head of Adult Education and Traineeships at Seetec said: “The adult education programme will play a vital role in achieving the industrial strategy of Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and the Metro Mayor for Liverpool City Region. As a leading provider of education and training, with a strong history of developing skills and benefiting communities, we’re delighted to have been appointed to deliver the AEB programme.
“We’ll be working closely with employers, referral partners and the third sector to create opportunities that help move unemployed residents into sustainable employment.”
