The Level 3 modules include:

  • Introduction to the sector - the history and role of the sector, who the key stakeholders are and the main roles and responsibilities of an employability practitioner.
  • The participant journey - this provides information about the participant journey and the support on offer.
  • Participants and their barriers - digging down into typical barriers that we see across practitioner caseloads and how to support tackling them.
  • Caseload management - Explore and understand how frameworks and working models can support practitioners to achieve their targets in key activity areas while supporting their participants through excellence of service and relevant and appropriate support to reach sustainable outcomes.

Those practitioners who successfully complete the full 22 modules will be awarded an IEP Accredited Level 3 Certificate.
