Placer Skills Academy

Our CPD-accredited Work Readiness Programme ensures that young people develop the critical employability skills they need to be ready for the world of work.

How We Work

Placer delivers work readiness online training for young people in partnership with schools, colleges and universities. Our courses complement and build on existing training by allowing young people to apply soft skills in work based contexts and scenarios. Our courses are particularly well suited to vocational courses like T Levels, and includes a course on preparing for a job interview. The programme also includes a motivational launch event; shown to increase engagement and excitement in the programme. As well as a co-branded, digital and verifiable certificate awarded to those successfully completing the programme, great for sharing on social media and with potential employers! 

All our courses are CPD accredited, providing a competitive edge where one is needed, for example a job interview or T Level placement. CPD can also set individuals apart in the job market, many candidates vying for particular roles often hold similar fundamental qualifications.       

Graduates of the Work Readiness Programme are eligible to join and create a profile on the Placer Talent Network platform, becoming visible to employers looking to hire work ready talent.                                                                                                                             

We are a Careers and Enterprise Company Approved Provider and our courses satisfy the Gatsby Benchmarks 2,4,5,6,7,8 as well as helping to fulfil the Provider Access Legislation.

Our affordable annual subscription model, combined with a fully-managed service, enable you to quickly launch and scale our partnership.
