Supporting New Routes to Employment

“The kind of things that are easy to teach and easy to test are precisely those things that are easy to digitise” – Andreas Shleicher, OECD, founder of PISA

Current and future generations are facing a world of work that’s changing at an unprecedented rate, where traditional labour markets no longer exist

There is much opportunity and to thrive, they will need to be adaptable, agile and open-minded.

Employers now require a diverse and creative skill set that goes beyond the conventional.

IVE work with inspiring sector leaders to open-up new routes to work experience, volunteering and paid jobs.

These employers and our existing clients recognise the need for an adaptive workforce with the behaviours and competencies that underpin creativity and innovation.

We partner with organisations like the Princes Trust, ensuring diverse groups of people, representative of modern day society can get a foot in the door.

Graduates from our programmes are:

  • Equipped to face ambiguity, challenges and complex problems
  • Able to find solutions and opportunities in a rapidly changing world.
  • Prepared for ongoing change and disruption

Competencies developed as a result of IVE Training include essential skills for future jobs as well as the ‘soft’ skills desired by all good employers:

  • Collaborative Ideation (social and emotional competence)
  • Testing of Ideas (motivation), Risk-Taking (responsible decision making)
  • Failure and Setbacks (resilience & coping)
  • Refining and Adapting (perseverance & goal orientation)
  • Achieving and Presenting Outcomes (sense of purpose, self-efficacy)
