What can we do to support young people be ready for work in the new situation we find ourselves in?
This summer we're moving our employability programmes online, to help young people build skills, confidence and connections to become ready for work. In July 2020 we'll be running our first virtual business experience week for young people, with a packed agenda covering topics including entrepreneurship, storytelling and marketing.
We have a variety of volunteering opportunities, whether you can offer less than an hour of your time or a longer term commitment, and we want as many volunteers as possible to share a wide range of career paths and insights with young people as possible. If you'd like to find out more, please get in touch!
