The students of today are our future thinkers, experimenters and navigators, they will embark on a career pathway like no other that has previously existed.

Our students have a lot to offer industry in navigating the challenges that are posed by current political, social, technological and cultural developments.

By working with Activate Learning, you can provide work experience and industrial placement opportunities for students so that you can talent spot before offering a permanent role; there are many opportunities for you to work with us around your recruitment needs.

Every year we work with more than 20,000 learners to help them decide on what the next step is for them, and if you work with us you can gain access to a pool of potential staff with a wide range of skills via our Employment Shop and Careers Team.

If your business is looking to recruit and wants to bypass the expensive costs associated with recruitment agencies and job advertising, linking in with our Employment Shop could help you save money and find the right person for the job.

And because of the emphasis we place on working with businesses throughout the education process and instilling in our learners the attributes employers want, you know they will have the skills to thrive in your workplace.

As one of the leading FE college groups in the UK, we also have a growing rank of former students that we work with as part of our Activate Alumni, and we are eager to work with other former students who are keen to give back and get involved with us.

Main product offerings include:

  • Ability to advertise roles within your organisation to recruit new talent from a pool of thousands of potential employees
  • Talent spotting via work experience and industry placement
  • Access to potential staff via careers events and networking opportunities

Melanie explains how webexpenses has partnered with Activate Learning to design curricula, develop a talent pipeline and employ efficient and committed interns.

“Through the internships we have gained access to talent with whom we have established an ongoing relationship. This in turn provides good quality people to work with us and strengthens our employer brand.

“The advantages and benefits of working with Activate Learning have led to us raising awareness of our business in the local area; what we do and the roles and opportunities within it - getting our name in front of the students and tutors so that they consider us when looking for jobs and placements.

“It strengthens our commitment to corporate social responsibility in the local area through these educational touchpoints.”
