LJ Rawlings is the CEO of Youth Employment UK a national membership organisations that specialises in all things youth employment - government policy, best practice, training, recruitment, development and retention of young people. Youth Employment UK also represents more than 20,000 14-24 year olds who are part of the Young Professional network, a free membership programme that helps young people to develop the skills and knowledge of the world of work whilst also giving them a voice on the youth employment issues that affect them.
@YEUK2012 has today launched the results from the 2020 Youth Voice Census, an annual survey capturing the experiences of 14-24-year old’s as they transition between education and employment.
The Youth Voice Census found that the playing field is not equal for all young people. The careers information and support they receive throughout education and into employment will be influenced by their gender, race, eligibility for free school meals and any additional needs they may have.
@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.
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.
