This June is TESYouth 5 years Anniversary. We celebrates five years of supporting young people.
Back in 2013 when TESYouth began, 15% of young people aged 16-24 were Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET). Five years later and that rate has now decreased to 11.5% (Office of National Statistics).
Despite this apparently positive trend, young people are still being left behind. According to a new piece of research, around half a million unemployed young people are falling through the gaps, missing out on claiming both benefits and advice, and risking “a life of unemployment and poverty”.
TESYouth is a social enterprise which works to support unemployed and unskilled young people. Since we began five years ago, we have been working with young people in London, running workshops and offering work experience. We have trained young people in enterprise, E-commerce, sales, marketing, IT and business.
Our Communication, Interview Techniques and Employment workshop has helped those we work with to increase their confidence and their future job prospects. We have many more workshops coming up this year; the next one is Sales and Marketing – click here to book a place.
At TESYouth, we understand that young people are the future, but that there can be so many barriers in their way stopping them from achieving what they are capable of. We have spent five years growing and developing as a social enterprise to help support young people grow and develop themselves. And we can’t wait for what the next five years will bring.
Get in touch: whether you’re a young person, a volunteer, a local business or a potential sponsor, we would love to hear from you. Please contact us for more information.
