For over 30 years, we have partnered with employers to create easily accessible routes to employment for our learners on release. Our partner employers range from national level companies to local businesses, making sure that we can help provide work for our learners in a wide range of fields and with employers who can help support them as they contribute to their communities.
Our Novus Works employer partners share our belief in the potential of our learners, and work with us with care and commitment to release their potential and help to improve their lives and economic success, and reduce re-offending. All our partners sign up to the Novus Employer Charter.
Adult Provision Partnerships
We have an open, inclusive, flexible and proactive approach to our way of working with our partners, informed by the values of our organisation - with integrity, a can-do attitude, continually improving and with sustainability. This approach not only influences our colleagues, but our interactions with our partners.
Youth Provision Partnerships
Children are at the heart of our Youth Provisions. The decisions that we make in collaboration with our government and service delivery partners draw on their expertise in placing our learners first. Our diverse range of partners help us to respond to the varying needs and challenges that impact the learners in our Youth Provision.
