Learning and Work Institute Chief Executive, Stephen Evans chats about the ‘Pledge’. The ‘Pledge’ has themes that have been raised during the Youth Employment Convention and will be the focus for Learning and Work over the next year.
The themes for the Pledge are:
-With the three million apprenticeship target set by Government, the quality and to accessibility of Apprenticeships has to be improved for all young people.
-Increased access to high quality work experience and technical education.
-To involve young people in the policies that affect them. ‘No decision about me, without me!’.
-All young people will have access to support, so that disability, gender or background does not restrict a young person’s opportunity to achieve.
