Free skills, careers & job hunting resources for 14-24 year olds

@YEUK2012 is delighted to present its free, interactive skills and careers booklets for young people aged 14-24. These booklets have been designed to support young people during this diffifcult time and have been co-designed with young people, careers advisers and employers. The resources build on the extensive online skills and careers content produced by Youth Employment UK through its Young Professional Skills Programme and Careers Hub which now supports more than 100,000 young people every month and can support schools and colleges in meeting some of the Gatsby Benchmarks.

There must be more support for apprentices and providers

These are very difficult and sad times. Highlighting the issues faced by a particular group can often feel exclusive and sometimes insensitive, but that is what Youth Employment UK (@YEUK2012) was set up to do. 

Careers education and knowledge of apprenticeships is on the rise, but there is still much work to do to fix youth unemployment #YouthVoicesCensus

Youth Employment UK has today launched the results from the 2019 Youth Voice Census, a survey capturing the experiences of more than 3,000 14-24-year olds as they transition between education and employment.

A society failing its young women at every stage of education

Yesterday saw the launch of results from Youth Employment UK’s Youth Voice Census, a survey capturing the experiences of 1,498 14-24 year olds transitioning between education and employment.

The Youth Voice Census is launched

On the 4th of July Youth Employment UK launched a Youth Voice Census, a temperature check of how young people aged 14 - 24 are feeling on a range of issues. Our aim is to get as many young people as possible to share their views and experiences on a range of issues including - careers education, work experience, social action, apprenticeships, traineeships, university and welfare.
