CSW Group works with businesses to help them create greater exposure to their job opportunities, align skills to needs more effectively, and support workforce development. We help young people to carve careers in developing sectors and help businesses to develop and harness the skills needed to grow their business.

We can help businesses to navigate the, often complicated, world of Apprenticeship provision and the Apprenticeship levy. We ensure that businesses secure the Apprenticeship provision that is most appropriate to their needs via our network of highly-respected and trusted training providers.

By supporting our activity, businesses can help inspire the next generation of the workforce ensuring that young people are prepared for the world of work. Engaging with schools provides opportunities for employees to develop, businesses to access education providers and enhance their own outreach activity

Businesses are key in inspiring the workforce of tomorrow, but how can you, as a business, help? At CSW we can support you to find the right activity for your business and your employees. There are several ways you can get involved, with a few examples below. If you have an idea or would just like to chat through the options please call us on 07810656033 or email us on bizdev@cswgroup.co.uk.

Work Experience

Many young people will head out on work experience in years 10 (aged 15) and Year 12 (aged 17) but in order for the placement to be meaningful we need employers that are keen to engage and offer them interesting placements. Young people will ask for a variety of placements and we have a large database of employers but always need more across the wider South West area. We will carry out duty of care checks with all employers and provide advice on the type of activity you can expect or ask from the young person.

STEM Ambassadors

STEM is of particular focus in business now, with an emphasis on getting young people involved in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. If you have employees working in this field we would love to have them on board as STEM Ambassadors – working with schools, clubs, home school groups and community groups in a voluntary capacity to run experiments, activity days and curriculum enrichment. We also get our Ambassadors involved in judging competitions and our bigger events such as the Big Bang fair. To find out more about STEM Ambassadors click the link below.
