Sector-based Work Academies

What are sector-based work academies?

The Government has introduced a new range of measures to help get Britain working. Sector-based work academies are one of those measures available in England to help those who are ready for work and receiving benefits to secure employment. They are designed to help meet your immediate and future recruitment needs as well as to recruit a workforce with the right skills to sustain and grow your business.

A sector-based work academy can last up to six weeks and has three key components:

  • Pre-employment training- relevant to the needs of your business and sector
  • A work experience placement - of great benefit to both the individual and a business
  • A guaranteed job interview


The key feature of sector-based work academies is that they offer a flexible approach and can be adapted to meet the needs of your business.
If you are unable to offer all three components, we may be able to work with you to overcome this – such as enabling you to join together with other employers as a consortium approach.
