The latest installment in the series from the team behind The Genie Programme, welcomes Samantha Windett, director of policy at Impetus and Laura-Jane Rawlings, founder and CEO of Youth Employment UK to join Anna Morrison CBE to reflect on the importance of engaging with young people when considering how we move into post-pandemic recovery.
The upcoming workshop will cover the current youth employment crisis, explore the importance of bringing young people into the conversation, and outline how working with youth ambassadors and deploying a youth friendly employer framework can go some way to resolving the key issues.
We will draw on the latest research including Youth Employment UK’s annual Youth Voice Census which explores how young people of all backgrounds feel about education, training, experience, work and prospects, and Impetus’ Youth Jobs Gap research which includes incredibly important data on the divide between young people in education and those who are NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training).
The workshop is scheduled for Tuesday 23rd February 2021 at 12pm, places are limited and registration is already open.
Exploring key topics in the apprenticeship landscape, the workshop series has previously welcomed expert contributors from The Open University, Disability Rights UK, The Social Mobility Commission and The Sutton Trust to discuss subjects including social mobility in apprenticeships and widening access to apprenticeships to people with learning difficulties, disabilities and health conditions.
The full series of workshops are also available to watch again on catch up.
