ICAN 25+ National Careers Service
The “I Can” project is an enhancement to the service delivered under the National Careers Service. It will provide high quality information, advice and guidance regarding career pathways to increase participation in further education and learning, including Apprenticeships. A skilled team of advisors will provide individuals with advice on training and skills in the workplace and deliver services in conjunction with employers. The ESIF programme identifies the need to support employees to develop their skills and enhance their future career prospects.
This project will aim to;
- Provide individuals with advice on training/skills in the workplace, deliver services in conjunction with employers and employment stakeholders
- Provide regulated and non-regulated training opportunities to improve employment prospects
- Research to inform service improvements and provide peer information, advice, signposting and referrals to the NCS service
- To increase participation in further education and learning, including Apprenticeships.
The target group for the Services are those who are employed and are facing in-work poverty to help them progress and increase their pay and working hours or obtain better quality higher paid jobs and move out of poverty.
The aim of the Service is to provide careers advice and guidance, personal development planning, skills development, learning and mentoring on an individual basis to those who are most disadvantaged and are looking to progress in their career.
