motivated people
to YOUR business

We are proud to offer a comprehensive employability provision that includes Kickstart and Bounceback courses to support communities and promote social mobility.


Our range of different programmes provide fantastic opportunities for businesses to engage with their local communities and support initiatives that provide real benefit and social mobility for those who take part. We provide meaningful training that helps people prepare to enter, or re-enter, the world of work with confidence and an understanding of the role they are taking on.


We work with you to create a training programme that helps you to recruit from a pool of people who have been prepared to work in your business and have had the opportunity to demonstrate their skills, attitude and personality before you bring them into your team.

"They really helped me with my communication skills and my Work Placement coach found Blue Arrow. I was really excited because I have always wanted a career in admin and this was my chance to get my foot through the door. After a few weeks, they told me that they liked me and offered me a full time job!"
