Youth Employment UK
Youth Employment UK is a not for profit social enterprise that is creating an online platform for all 16-24 year olds to access to help them to find employment, education, enterprise or training opportunities in their local area. Youth Employment UK also has a Youth Charter asking all members to sign up to show their commitment to improving opportunities for young people. Regional Youth Committees are just taking shape to develop a regional focus for youth employment as well as a national one. Young NEET people and all 16-25 year olds. Our Youth Committess will identify local barriers to employment in their region and look to work with employers and other organisations to run youth focused programmes to tackle those individual barriers. We have a very clear Safeguarding policy, and key staff engaging directly with young people must be CRB checked. We engage with a range of proffesionals from qualified teachers and coaches to youth workers ensuring our staff understand our customer base is very important to us. Young people are involved in the selection and recruitment of people joining advisory boards across the UK. Through our portal we will create learning platforms sharing information and guidance on career and personal development. Through our Regional Committees we will support young people to gain the skills they need to be successful in education, employment, enterprise or training with workshops, fairs and training events. We will have a dedictaed team member supporting young people with Think Big applications and the delivery of their programes. Youth Employment UK will produce a regular "Good News" newsletter, this will include all of the success stories, case studies and celebrations that are happening within the Youth Employment UK network. Our Regional Youth Committees are run and managed by young people. Youth Employment UK will ensure each committee has a mentor and access at all times to the campaign HQ but they must run and manage local Youth Employment programmes, debates and groups. We also have a youth voice on our Advisory Board.
