Greater Manchester Education, Training and Employment (GM ETE)

Supporting people on probation to access work and learning opportunities.

Delivered by our Achieve team.

Achieve delivers GM ETE on behalf of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), as part of the Greater Manchester’s Integrated Rehabilitative Services (GMIRS).

We operate from probation offices across the 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester: Manchester, Salford, Trafford, Wigan, Stockport, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Oldham, Tameside.

Our Key Worker supports the individual to create an action plan designed to help them achieve their learning and employment goals. We provide preparation for interviews, CV support, 1-2-1 and group sessions, job search, support with applications for work or education and access to training and job opportunities. We also deliver job clubs. The individual’s Key Worker will support that person throughout the process.

We have strong community links and work in partnership with a range of training and employment providers to help people on probation overcome barriers and build skills and experience, enhancing their life chances after custody.

We work closely with the other GMIRS providers. We collaborate with them to achieve positive outcomes, innovate and co-deliver to ensure that people on probation receive a seamless path to specialist support, helping to reduce re-offending and creating a successful pathway beyond their time on Probation.
