Open a New Career Path

Individuals with limited job opportunities, or even those who want to make more money will have an avenue through which to gain industry qualifications and the potential to earn more. Tribe can give young people a career path within rural localities or new part time earning opportunities outside of another position. Tribe can provide a way for retired members of the public to retrain and earn extra funds to top up their pensions, all though working hyper-locally within their community.

Learning the Skills For Care

The care industry faces a huge challenge to nationally source 90,000 care workers but face a 33% industry churn, this is through staff leaving the post once trained (at a cost of £3,500pp). Tribe will employ Virtual Reality ‘Cardboard kits’ sent to people through post who have signed up to Tribe. Amongst e-learning modules built with our partners ‘Skills For Care’ Tribe will use virtual reality Immersive simulations to prepare carers for real situations they will likely face during their duties.

Training care workers this way will mean individuals have a realistic understanding of the role and skills required, whether creating a micro-enterprise or working for an established care provider. After completion of initial training and voluntary opportunities within their community, Tribe care workers will receive a digital qualification from the certifying body, which provides access to paid work that requires a professional skill set. Adaptive training generates tangible analytics as the individuals training progresses - this provides a way to facilitate continuous development in-line with current regulations.

What is the cost of adaptive training?
To upskill a carer, care companies incur a £3,500 training charge. Accelerated by Brexit, industry churn has now been increased to 33% which has made it impossible to train new carers fast enough. Training charges incurred by care companies are being passed on to local government with administration charges as high as 30% - This is a particularly big problem in rural areas and clearly the model is no longer sustainable. Using Tribe, these costs can be avoided.
Will I gain any qualifications?
