New to the World of Work


Hiring people who are new to the world of work can be a cost effective way of recruiting for the future. However, there is a lot to learn for someone who is new to the world of work and mistakes will be made along the way.

  • Introduction to team work
  • Meeting someone for the first time
  • Reflective skills

A licence also enables you to build your own online learning courses on the system, meaning that you can create your own inductions and pathways at no extra cost. Successful completion of every course leads to a digital badge reward to evidence completion.
