WHAT WE WANT TO ACHIEVE:
Our project aims to support 16,610 Birmingham & Solihull young people (15-29 years) who are NEET (Not engaged in Employment, Education or Training including unemployed and economically inactive). The project will support participants, where appropriate, with pathways to sustainable employment, education and training outcomes.
The project will support young people to secure jobs in local businesses and key sectors by:
- Integration of service provision across providers
- Personal holistic support driven by a relationship of trust between beneficiaries and lead professionals
- A “Work First” approach involving the introduction of young people into some form of supported work environment (or work -facing education or training environment) within 6 weeks of their entry to the project. This project seeks to bring opportunity for employment experience much earlier on to aid participant confidence and experience.
- Dedicated support to employers to ensure the creation of work environments that are conducive and responsive to beneficiaries support needs but also remain positive for the businesses themselves.
HOW WE ARE FUNDED:
