3SC invites expressions of interest from organisations who want to work in a consortium to deliver the Working Wales Programme in South East Wales

Programme Information

The Welsh Government is currently procuring a national programme called Working Wales, which is a new programme designed to support people of all ages to overcome barriers and gain the skills to achieve and maintain good quality, sustainable employment.

3SC are in discussions with potential primes for both the adult and young people’s lots in South East Wales.

Working Wales Youth Training (WWYT) Lot seeks to work with young people (16 and 17 year olds on entry) motivated to work but who need improved employability skills, clearer career focus and better job related skills. The primary objective and measure of success for WWYT is to secure positive outcomes for participants in the form of sustainable, quality employment, including an apprenticeship where possible.

The Working Wales Adult (WWA) Lot supports individuals aged 18 and over with one or more barriers to employment.  Low skills will be one such barrier to employment but there are likely to be others that will need to be addressed before the individual is ready for work.  The delivery model will account for Government priorities and the complexity of the barriers to be addressed.  Support through the Lot will be weighted towards Government priority areas and those individuals with complex barriers.

3SC are seeking delivery organisations that will be able to work with each individual to create a tailored action plan to provide employability support tailored to the individual. Interventions will vary in content and length and payments will be made based on a range of service fees and outcome payments. Interventions will consist of a mix of one-to-one or group support that promote team building and develop skills required in the workplace.

If you have delivery space and capacity in South East Wales and a track record of effectively supporting people into work, we would love to hear from you. If you are interested in joining 3SC’s delivery partnership, please complete this EOI.
