Boosting Skills for Young People

Youth Pledge – Our Youth Pledge states that every young person in Norfolk and Suffolk will get the support they need to get into education, training, an apprenticeship or a job within three months of leaving education or employment.  We aim to meet this pledge through a number of measures:

The New Anglia Enterprise Adviser Network – The New Anglia Enterprise Adviser Network connects senior, local business leaders with senior leaders in local schools and colleges, helping to motivate and inspire young people, to make a major impact on their work prospects. For more information click here.

Youth Guarantee – The Youth Employment Service in Ipswich (MyGo) is providing intensive support and challenge to 16-24 year olds not in education, employment or training. European funding has been secured to fund services across Greater Ipswich. Work is also now ongoing to explore how to roll out the most successful elements of the Youth Guarantee to areas outside of Greater Ipswich. Work is at an advanced stage of introducing a ‘MyGo’ model in Lowestoft.

Norwich Opportunity Area – We are pleased to be a partner in the Norwich Opportunity Area initiative with the Department for Education. Find out more here.
