What have we found out so far

What have we found out so far?

  • The barriers for young people finding employment appear to fit into two categories.

    -Emotional/personal barriers, such as lack of confidence and self esteem. This is not helped by the current provision of a more generic approach to supporting young people to find employment

    -Practical barriers, such as lack of suitable clothes for interview or a shortage of money for transport. It also expands to an overall lack of experience (of general life skills as well as work placed experience).

Identified solutions

Identified solutions…

  • The need for a more intensive personalised “youth focussed” approach.

  • A joint approach to communication and referral processes .

  • Address employers barriers – “educating” employers/changing recruitment practices.

  • Address employment market barriers - encouraging work tasters, volunteering etc.

  • Address society barriers - engage wider community, bring different groups together

  • Self employment – provide support and encouragement and identify opportunities.
