Take an active role in training your next generation of staff by partnering with Foundation Education as an Industry Partner.
An industry partnership offers you the opportunity to mentor students through the practical aspects of their course within your workplace. Foundation Education places importance on the value of our Industry Partners and we are always seeking to expand our partnership network.
These partnership opportunities are mutually beneficial. Your role in providing students access to practical hands-on experience gives them the skills they will need to be job-ready upon graduation. In facilitating this partnership, your organisation will also benefit by having direct access to a skilled workforce that offers you a cost-effective and straightforward recruitment opportunity.
A partnership with Foundation Education offers your business abundant benefits and prospects that increase your brand exposure through your association with Foundation Education. An industry partnership also gives you free screening opportunities for potential job candidates. When you train Foundation Education students in your business, the experience you provide will, in turn, offer you an extra pair of hands when you need them and an additional source of revenue.
Your recruitment process will also be simplified! When your mentees are ready to graduate, you will have the first pick of recruiting the highly skilled industry-ready graduates that you had a hand in training. Finally, your input into students' education will shape the future of your industry.
Through this partnership program, we can put you in touch with our recent graduates to help you find your next employees. Recruitment partnerships offer businesses recruitment opportunities on a local and national scale.
If you are searching for new employees, a vocational placement partnership gives you the chance to train your next employees by offering students vocational placements where they can complete the practical requirements of their course.
Referral partnerships offer businesses the opportunity to refer suitable students to Foundation Education to upskill or get qualified in their industry and receive a financial bonus from us.
Corporate Partners can refer staff members looking to upskill. We work with your HR or training and development department to determine the best qualification to suit your business's needs.
Your business can work with Foundation Education to assist students through traineeships. Government incentives may be available to support your employment of trainees.*
With access to practical placements, students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in industry-leading businesses. Combined with the theory components of their course, which students complete online in their own time, students graduate from Foundation Education with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen profession.
Once a student has enrolled with Foundation Education and has completed their theoretical assessments, they will be asked to complete a work etiquette and professional skills development course to ensure they are ready to be offered vocational placement. You will then be provided the opportunity to interview candidates for available vocational placement positions within your business.
Once you have selected your candidates, students will complete practical workplace training in your business under your guidance and mentorship. Upon graduation, you will have the option of recruiting them directly.
