Details

The focus of this call is to provide support and co-ordination linking local employers with schools, colleges, and young people aged 15 – 24 to provide meaningful and inspirational experiences of the world of work and to ensure that young people can make informed education and careers choices.

As a minimum it is expected that the project will:

  • Deliver activities that showcase career pathways and progression opportunities in the LEP’s priority job families, e.g. through careers events and fairs that are inclusive and accessible to all young people, including those with additional learning needs;
  • Support employers to develop and offer experiences of work, apprenticeship and job opportunities, particularly recognising the forthcoming need for T level students to do an extended work experience placement;
  • Support employers to deliver activities that will help young people in school years 10 to 13 as well as those under the age of 25 to transition effectively from schools to T levels and apprenticeships. This could include activities such as mentoring, team building and transferable employability skills and must be accessible for all young people, including those with additional learning needs; and
  • Co-ordinate activities and simplify the process for employers by encouraging collaboration between different organisations and ensuring information about activities, offers and associated resources are easily accessible.
