Young people and youth organisations consistently tell us that employment and job prospects are among the biggest concerns that young people have about their lives. In London the situation is particularly challenging.
Even though there are potentially many more opportunities in London than in other parts of the country, the variety of programmes and players are not well co-ordinated and young people who are out of work – particularly those facing the biggest barriers – find the system very hard to navigate.
In 2017 we launched our Talent Match Croydon programme, working with young people aged 18-24 throughout the borough.
In early 2019, we’ll be launching our brand new employability programme, working with members from across our network. We will update this page with more information about our exciting new programme when it launches. Sign up to our newsletter to stay up-to-date with our latest news and updates.
From 2014 to 2018, London Youth led a partnership of organisations running Talent Match London, an employability programme for young people aged 18-24 in London. Following the programme’s five year run, we successfully met and exceeded all of the agreed outcomes, working with over 2,500 young Londoners. Find out more about the innovative programme here.
