Demographic data

Work history and experience are crucial. Once young people get a foot in their door they can stay in work, but this helps them get the foot in the door

Training and qualifications are a pre-requisite. Employers use these to filter, so need to be job relevant and valued by employers

Confidence looking for work is a crucial signal

Young people are a diverse group. Other issues like caring responsibilities and health impact, as with other age groups

Case study: Scotland

  • Our partnership has allowed our customers to access:
  • Get Into. Short vocational courses designed with employers
  • Development Awards. Micro grants to tackle barriers
  • Enterprise. A four day course focused on starting a business
  • So far this has delivered:
  • 10 out of 12 participants getting jobs with DHL
  • 12 out of 12 gaining Apprenticeships with Arnold Clark
  • Key lessons.
  • When designed with employers, short training can work
  • When there’s a good job prospect, young people will engage
slide11

Case study: Birmingham

  • Hypothesis that provision designed by young people for young people would be more successful:
  • Youth Innovation Board. Giving young people a formal role in programme design
  • Engagement mechanisms. Including focus groups, customer feedback etc
  • So far this has delivered:
  • ½ of 441 Initiate participants have progressed into further education and training
  • 90% said the programme supported their progression
  • Key lessons.
  • Involving YP in design can work and change delivery

“The boxing was really good and when we toured Hotel Indigo, I was keen to have a go at everything,” he said. “I’ve been out of work for the past six months and I am really keen to get another job. Young people are often criticised for not wanting to work, but that’s certainly not the case here – we’re all fired up!”

“I’m always looking for opportunities to learn new skills and make progress, and this week has been a real inspiration,” she said. “Glenn and Richie have taught us skills we can use in the workplace, and visiting Hotel Indigo and the BT Call Centre were also real eye-openers. I never knew just how many different kinds of jobs there were available and I have handed in my CV in the hope I might be considered when opportunities arise.”

TKO – Training, Knowledge & Opportunities'

“The Ingeus TKO Project is remarkable in helping young unemployed people gain confidence and we’ve been proud to be involved in it. By just listening to young people you quickly discover how important such a project like this really is.

“All the youngsters clearly enjoyed learning about our operations, from the restaurant and housekeeping to maintenance.
