Helping 16 – 24 year olds get into work or training
The Burnley Together Youth Employment and Skills Hub helps 16 – 24 year olds get into work or training.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is younger people who experiencing the bulk of job losses, redundancies and reduced employment and training opportunities.
Working alongside Job Centre Plus, the Burnley Together partners have launched the hub to help young people whose job and training prospects have been devastated by the pandemic, and are calling for local businesses to do what they can to protect the future of the town’s next generation.
The Youth Employment and Skills Hub will coordinate with local organisations to ensure young people still have access to training or job opportunities – with a personalised, coaching approach for each individual and a real focus on supporting younger people’s physical and mental health, to help build resilience during this uncertain time.
You will receive support, advice and access to opportunities not advertised or promoted elsewhere.
The launch of the Youth Hub and new Kickstart schemes are the first of several measures that the Burnley Together, the DWP, and partners will be introducing over coming months as part of a joined-up effort to supporting local young people who are struggling.
