The Youth Employment Initiative is available to those aged 16 - 29 living in the Tees Valley and currently not in education, employment or training.
The programme offers a holistic approach to removing barriers and providing practical support and training to gain employment, including sector specific training and apprenticeships.
One to One support is given by a dedicated YEI coordinator within the Learning and Skills team.
As well as helping individuals access training courses the coordinator can also help with CV writing, job applications and preparing for an interview process. For those not quite ready for job application, opportunities are sourced for volunteering and building confidence and self-esteem. Financial support can also be accessed to provide clothing for interviews, work, travel, childcare and equipment.
For more information please call the YEI team on 07387241854.
