What does Inspire, Recruit and Upskill mean?

Case study: DEFINITIONS

Inspire includes activities designed to inspire the future workforce. This can be supporting initiatives which work directly with young people or those which support adults back in to work.

The youth end of this work is well supported by the public and voluntary sector but research has shown how powerful employer interventions are in encouraging the positive progression for students. If you are able to get involved, Norfolk and Suffolk has many existing ways to make the time you invest as effective as possible.

The adult side of work inspiration is linked more closely to projects around work and health and those supported by the DWP, and also includes individuals who for whatever reason may be ‘under employed’.

Recruit is the area that helps you to recruit employees to your business. We are not replacing a commercial recruitment service but focusing on cohorts which are not typical ‘job seekers’; this could include apprentices, graduates or interns and targeted groups such as ‘returners’ to the employment market.

Upskill is an area to promote opportunities for you to consider the requirements of your business both current and for the future and secure training to help your current workforce ‘upskill’ to better support your business. This could include funding opportunities or provision of specialist training aligned to your industry.
