Sector Based Work Academy

Post by Caker on Thu Aug 17, 2017 1:58 pm

I just realised that we have nothing on the forum about this and yet it remains a current scheme and people are still referred to it, so we really need something, if anyone has any information.

To start, I found this:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/sector-based-work-academies-employer-guide/sector-based-work-academies-employer-guide



SBWA is not suitable for everyone, so I believe that we need more information about the consequences of whether or not to choose to participate in this, particularly in regard to people who are not given all the facts prior to referral to this scheme.

Any takers?

Excluding your new Youth Obligation what work experience schemes are
entirely voluntary?

DWP Response:

DWP has several schemes which are voluntary. These schemes are available
for people who are interested in gaining the necessary skills to help move into
employment. The work experience schemes that are voluntary are:

 Work Experience Opportunity

 The work placement element of sector-based work academies (sbwa)

The scheme is currently voluntary until the individual agrees to attend (JSA claimants).

Once agreed, the only elements that are mandatory include: The training and the interview.
