A new initiative Community Connections North which is part of Building Better Opportunities, was launched today to support people furthest away from work to move them towards employment, training or education.
The programme running in Greater Cambridge, Greater Peterborough, Fenlands and surrounding area, brings together a wealth of local knowledge and experience from community organisations working together to help the more disadvantaged in the community move closer to work.
A new service has been launched in Northamptonshire to help young people who are unemployed or not in school or college. The support called My Future is tailored to the needs of 15-18 year olds or 19-24 with learning difficulties or disabilities, to help them get job or college ready.
Designed to meet the needs of each individual, the programme offers a wide range of initiatives to help young people get back on track. The contract to run this essential support was awarded to TCHC by Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership who are managing the project funded by the European Union’s European Social Fund and the Skills Funding Agency.
Amanda joins TCHC from the Skills Funding Agency where she is currently Head of Employer and Delivery Services.
Dale Morgan CEO of TCHC Group said “Amanda’s vast experience in this sector will be invaluable to us and our clients. Her knowledge and understanding of mainstream and ESF project management will help TCHC develop our programmes to ensure that young people and adults can have greater prospects. Amanda is joining a company who seek to make lives better and with her experience and drive, she will ensure that we are able to meet this goal. She will be a brilliant asset to the company.”
A campaign to introduce 500 apprentices into the workplace across Suffolk in 100 days has been joined by a Woodbridge based charity who are training and developing the young leaders of tomorrow.
Just42 is the only open access youth provider in 200 square miles of rural Suffolk and in 2015 came into contact with about 2500 different children and young people. Through their work they build relationships with children and young people over a number of years through different projects. In this way they build confidence, self-esteem, build community, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and improve employability.
