Foundation for Jobs
Foundation for Jobs is a Partnership between Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, local employers, the education sector, and wider partners. We are committed to working together to help prepare young people for employment and to create more opportunities for young people in the Borough.
There are some young people in the Borough who are particularly at risk of being not in education, employment or training (NEET) and long-term unemployed. Through Foundation for Jobs we want to ensure that every young person is provided with the best possible foundation for their future careers, regardless of their individual circumstances.
Our Delivery Plan provides focus and direction to the various cross-cutting work streams and programmes that already exist in Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council's directorates and in stakeholder and partner organisations. And in addition, documents the Partnership's ambitions for the next 2 years against the key aims of Foundation for Jobs, with actions to achieve measurable outcomes.
FFJ Delivery Plan
Our key aims are to:
- Increase job opportunities, experiences of work and apprenticeships for young people;
- Provide young people with opportunities to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes needed for employment;
- Prevent young people from becoming NEET through early intervention by tailoring support for school age young people, already known to be at risk;
- Implement responsive interventions for young people who are already NEET to help them overcome their barriers and progress into a positive outcome.
We want more employers to get involved in our work by helping to deliver careers and enterprise education in schools and colleges, and / or by providing apprenticeship, job or work-experience opportunities for young people.
If you are a young person who is not in education, employment or training and needs careers guidance or support to find work or training, we have dedicated teams who can help you with this.
We want to hear from partner organisations who can provide education, training and wider support services for young people. This will enable us to promote these opportunities to young people and through our networks.
