Employability Resource Directory

At London Youth we want to support all young Londoners in continuing development in employability. This page offers a directory of online resources and sessions that both community youth organisations and young people can access remotely or connect with for support.

We’d also like to hear from any community youth organisation, youth worker or IAG pracititioner that is offering online activity sessions and showcase your great work. You can contact our Employability Team via Ella.Porter@londonyouth.org to discuss featuring your content.
