The Council is committed to working in partnership with other agencies to:
- Promote the development of learning communities
- Ensure local people have access to lifelong learning and training opportunities
New Deal is a key part of the government's Welfare to Work strategy. Personalised programmes of work and skills training opportunities, delivered locally, are aimed at helping unemployed people into work. There are programmes for young people (18-24), 25+, lone parents, disabled people, 50+ and partners of the unemployed.
All programmes are accessible through Employment Services and, whether you are an unemployed individual looking for a job or a company with vacancies to offer, your first point of contact should be your local Job Centre.
Learndirect is a network of online learning and information service. It's a government-sponsored initiative in flexible learning, intended to make possible the vision of a 'learning society' where everyone can learn and upgrade their skills throughout life.
The only website providing you with information and advice on local government careers. Whoever you are, whatever your skills and experience, there could be something for you.
Connexions Direct is a service for young people aged 13-19 that offers quick access to information and advice on a wide range of topics, including employment and training, through one easy to use website.
Tricuro provides social care to adults with a range of needs across the county of Dorset.
Like all councils in the UK, Bournemouth Borough Council, Borough of Poole and Dorset County Council are faced with huge financial and demographic challenges, on top of their existing geographical challenges. By launching Tricuro, all three councils can retain the quality and scope of services by sharing their resources, as well as giving staff more power to work flexibly and efficiently. They can also develop and expand these existing services, enabling us to deliver them to more people.
