The Jet scheme helps people who are unemployed get back into work or start their own business. Although it is based in the City Centre, JET operates outreach services in all communities across the city and offers work-based training specific to the individual's needs. It also has an employer-facing job brokerage service, which provides recruitment support for local businesses.
Jet is a partnership project and is only possible with the support of several organisations. The scheme is managed by Stoke-on-Trent City Council Employment and Skills team and is currently funded via the DWP work programme.
One of the main priorities for the Jet is to reduce the number of unemployed people in North Staffordshire and create a highly skilled, flexible local workforce that will contribute to a more diverse and competitive local economy. It also aims to help people start their own sustainable businesses that will also contribute to local wealth.
This will ensure that the new opportunities, created by the regeneration of North Staffordshire, will be available to local people by preparing them with the right skills and training. Jobs Enterprise and Training (Jet) is one innovative project that will help to achieve this goal both for individuals and for businesses in North Staffordshire.
