WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE

NEW ANGLIA LEP – COMMUNITY CHALLENGE

To improve the confidence, skills, work readiness and employment opportunities for participants. Increase basic vocational skills in three broad areas: Food/Drink/Customer Service, Transport/Trades/Construction and Retail/Tourism, as well as focusing on employability skills, positive attitude and interaction with employers. With coaching, practical training and ongoing support, ACE will give young people the opportunity and confidence to demonstrate their employability to potential employers through a series of employer engagement activities.

Activities Will Include:

  • Challenges set by employers;
  • Visits to employer premises and presentations from employers to project beneficiaries;
  • An opportunity for both the beneficiary and the employer to get to know each other, with a view to the employer offering further employment experiences, apprenticeships or employment with training opportunities.
