Youth Employment UK – supporting schools and students
During this period of lock down there are many resources and links that will be coming your way. Whilst not wanting to add to this I wanted to let you know about the wealth of resources that Youth Employment UK have made available to schools and students.
The Skills Service has partnered with Youth Employment UK to help drive forward the agenda of tackling youth employment related issues in Peterborough. We are happy to endorse and support the services they provide at no cost to schools and students.
Their “Young Professional Programme” provides young people with a fantastic opportunity to develop their employability skills through on-line learning programmes which are ideally suited to the times we are currently experiencing.
In response to Covid 19 they have also developed a range of resources which may be of interest to both schools and their students. These can be found at:-
Skills and Careers Booklet
Coronavirus support for students and young people
Mental health support pages
Staying connected with young people – provides a useful insight into the implications of future recruitment policies for employers which may inform your engagement with your employer network
