IAM is a registered learning provider and an authorised gateway provider for the Department of Work & Pensions’ (DWP) Kickstart Scheme. Aimed at working with large and SME businesses which are willing to give young people an opportunity to enter the world of work, IAM takes young adults aged 16-24 and matches them with a six-month paid work placement.
IAM works with employers from all sectors, supporting them to join the dots and enable them to navigate through the previously uncharted waters of Government-funded and supported training budgets. Employers who sign up also receive a financial contribution toward onboarding their new starter to support equipment and training that they may need. Working with business leaders across the city region, IAM has already created over 175 opportunities for young people!
With decades of leadership and learning development experience between them, heading up IAM is CEO, Stuart Fitzgerald, a passionate advocate of the SME community and the principles of social value. Joining Stuart is head of learning and development, Lynn Lock, who boasts years of proven expertise in working with employers to match-funded training opportunities for workforce development. Lynn understands the landscape and what is available to match employers’ needs, with training partners across the region allowing her to create innovative, cost-effective and impact-rich projects.
Join Stuart, Lynn and Jayne Moore, CEO of Jayne Moore Media Group, who will tell you all about IAM and how your business can get involved in this unique movement.
