learndirect agrees partnership with recruitment consultancy ForceSelect

learndirect has agreed a new partnership with recruitment consultancy ForceSelect.  This will involve learndirect providing training for early service leavers (those people who leave the armed forces with between 1 day and 4 years service) looking to get jobs through ForceSelect.  Whilst Forceselect offer support to other members of the forces it is the early service leavers around which our partnership is based.

The partnership brings together ForceSelect’s expertise in placing ex-forces personnel into employment and learndirect‘s experience in helping people improve their skills.

There will be a wide range of training opportunities available for ForceSelect candidates including:

  • Apprenticeships at Levels 2 and 3
  • IT skills
  • Maths and English
  • Management
  • Job skills like CV writing and interview techniques

Many people leaving the forces early will be aged 21 or below and an Apprenticeship is an ideal way for them to get into work and learn new skills right from day one.

As well as helping recruits the partnership will be looking to get employers interested in taking on early leavers as apprentices. Businesses will benefit through this approach by being able to access high quality training whilst recruiting keen and enthusiastic people wanting to develop their skills.  Companies will also benefit from reduced recruitment costs as ForceSelect has access to a bank of candidates available to start work immediately.
