Sector Based Work Academies

St Helens Chamber works closely with local employers who have multiple vacancies to fill to create Sector Based Work Academies.

These programmes involve attendees completing a number of short training courses, which give them the skills and qualifications needed to apply for their roles – and at the end each person who completes the course gets a guaranteed interview!
