We are proud to work with a number of colleges across the West Midlands, Black Country and Staffordshire to provide SWAPs. SWAP stands for Sector-based Work Academy Programmes. The programmes help those who are currently unemployed find work in schools near them.
Our SWAPs last up to 4 weeks, giving you an opportunity to learn new skills and get experience of working in local schools.
Our SWAPs are available for jobseekers claiming either Universal Credit, Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) or Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).
If you'd like more information, get in touch to speak to one of our friendly team.
After running a number of successful SWAPs with South and City College Birmingham, Halesowen College and more, we have been able to find work for over 60% of those who have completed the programme. Feedback from our schools about those from the programme has been outstanding.
Ferida, who completed our first ever SWAP with South and City College Birmingham, has gone on to work in various roles across a number of schools. She received some amazing feedback following her completion of the programme.
If you would like be a part of one of our SWAPs, then please register your interest. We'll then pass your details over to the relevant person at one of our partner colleges.
