The Luton Employment & Skills Strategy 2022-2027 identifies new approaches aimed at developing a pipeline of talented and resilient people. We do this by working closely with schools, colleges, the university, pre-employment providers and employers to provide career pathways into job opportunities.

Passport to employment programme

Passport to employment provides Luton businesses with a cost-effective and targeted approach to recruiting directly from our talent pool of adult learners.

Participating employers provide details of job vacancies, highlighting the skills and experiences that they need. This can include minimum levels of maths, English and ICT aptitude, along with softer skills for communication, teamwork, initiative or emotional intelligence. We can even add occupation-specific requirements such as driving licenses or CSCS cards. In return was ask that employers offer a guaranteed interview.

Luton Adult Learning then create and deliver a bespoke training package for our adult learners and advertise the vacancies on a dedicated jobs page. Once the programme is completed, suitable applicants are put in contact with the employer to arrange an interview.

We are keen to work with Luton businesses to help them to get the right workforce. To find out more email: passport@lutonacl.ac.uk
