This training is designed in partnership with local colleges and is aimed at equipping learners with specific vocational and employability skills to enable them to take up work placement/volunteering opportunities, move onto Level 1 training courses or move into employment. Those tenants who were assessed at Entry level 3 are able to progress onto our sector skills training programmes developed with our partners OnSite and South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS).
Our Guard to Earn course has received considerable support from across the city. The programme includes a work placement, Security Industry Authority door supervision training, employability skills and for successful learners, a fully funded SIA badge. The programme includes local employers offering 8 day placement opportunities for tenants to gain practical work experience in the sector.

A key component of our stage 3 provision is the establishment of volunteer work placements with local organisations.

It provides a progression route for those tenants completing employability courses and an opportunity to showcase their skills and complete key employability units such as 'Working in a Team'.
