Investment Priority: People and Skills
We’re looking for applications to support young people to access and navigate a simplified, yet comprehensive, employment and skills support offer that addresses their individual needs and provides pre-engagement, triage and initial assessments to develop personal action plans. This includes key areas such as health (including mental health) and disabilities, employability and careers advice, financial well-being and housing support.
This could include engaging with employers and providing quality and meaningful work experience/work tasters, work preparation and apprenticeships, provision of skills training or support to re/engage with further or higher education.
Project design should take into account young people’s needs and views and provide geographical coverage and proximity for the most deprived neighbourhoods across CIoS, as well as neighbourhoods who have previously been less likely to engage with skills training offers.
We expect any bid to come forward to work closely with the People Hub, who will act as the single front door for residents aged 16-24. Additional delivery partners should also be clearly outlined in your application.
