Course Summary

The broad purpose of the Employability Practitioner occupation is to work with those individuals (service users) who are distanced furthest from the labour market, helping them to address and overcome obstacles to securing suitable and sustainable employment. 

Employability Practitioners may specialise in working with a specific group of service users and will devise strategies to address and overcome  multiple and complex barriers to employment, and to improve each individual's employability prospects, with the end goal being to find employment or to progress in work if they are already employed.

This role requires a broad appreciation of the types of public services, community offerings and funding streams available and an understanding of how these fit together so that a bespoke plan of support can be put in place that takes a holistic approach to the service user.

BTEC Level 3 Extended diploma helps Kyle is prepared for business degree

Derby College business student Kyle Traynor has conditional offers from four universities to study for a degree in business management and finance.
 
And the 18-year-old from Heanor, is confident he’ll be well prepared for to take up a university place this September, thanks to his BTEC level 3 Extended Diploma in Business
 
Kyle, who would most like to work in finance – possibly as a financial adviser or company finance director – is finding every element of his course to be interesting and of value.
 
He said: “I highly recommend my level 3 course. It covers so much including finance, tax, human resources and the English legal system in relation to consumer protection and workplace rights.
 
I also enjoyed doing the unit on the principles of management and leadership theory which looks at what makes a good manager. The personal finance unit was good too as it looks at what I’d need to study to become a financial adviser. It covers ISAs and other savings plans, budgeting, cost cutting and financial planning.”  
 
Kyle, who took his exams in January, is now concentrating on finishing his assignments.
 
He added: “Derby College suits me. It’s near, The Roundhouse has everything I need and our lecturers are good. We’re having to learn remotely because of lockdown but we’ve had support from staff. I’ve had distinctions in some units, including my first unit this year, which was market research. Knowing this course is leading to the degree I want to study at university is helping me to stay motivated.”
 
Kyle is unsure yet where he will study for his business degree but Sheffield Hallam University is his first choice.

I highly recommend my level 3 course. It covers so much including finance, tax, human resources and the English legal system in relation to consumer protection and workplace rights.
