Bath College are delivering a series of SWAPs (Sector-based Work Academy Programmes) and lining up SWAPs in hospitality, employability and construction, among others.

SWAPs are for over 19s who are either not in work or are on a low income.  Job Coaches would normally refer people who are on Universal Credit onto the courses but people can enrol directly through the college.  

Most SWAPs will have some level of Work Experience and/or hands-on taster sessions.  They always partner with at least one employer who have live jobs available and at the end of the SWAP, leaners are guaranteed a job interview for one of those jobs. As well as the sector specific training, Bath College will also run a Skills Health Check that will look at levels of English, maths and ICT as well as more general employability around CVs, covering letters, applying for jobs, progression pathways and preparing for the workplace.

Bath College are looking for employers who would like to be involved. Their next SWAP will be in general Customer Service.  If this applies to you, and you’d like to get involved, please get in touch using the details below. The only condition to participation is that the employer must have current live job vacancies available.

As part of the SWAP, leaners are guaranteed a job interview with the employer for one of those live jobs. It’s a great way of hand picking new local talent.
