Work Ready Programmes

Looking for the skills to get you the job?

Well done, you have found us, so what can we do for you?

We give you the best two things you are looking for – training and qualifications.

Plato’s academies are designed to give you the training and support to help you move into employment. We provide job specific training alongside giving you the skills to find a job including CVs, application forms and interviews.

You are probably not sure what you want to do yet, or you may know exactly where you are going. Ever way, our academies can help you explore the options available to you.

What work ready academies do Plato offer?

We offer academies in Health and Social Care, Child Care, Retail Administration and Customer Service from our sites in Chester, Stockport, Salford, Manchester and Tameside. Use our course finder and latest vacancies to find out more.

Our courses are 6 weeks and typically run 3 days a week.

Who can apply?

You can apply for the academies if you are currently aged 19+ and are receiving JSA, ESA or Universal Credit.

We work alongside the job centre and your benefits will not be effected whilst on our programme. Speak to your personal advisor regarding extra support including child care, travel and interview clothes that you can claim whilst on our course.

To find out more, please contact us to book onto an awareness session in your area. These sessions are to help you find out more about the courses and how we can help you.
