Since 2012 more than 600 youth centres in UK had closed

Millions of pounds of is being spent on the government’s flagship citizenship scheme for young people while local youth clubs are closing, councils say.

The National Citizen Service, a four-week summer scheme for 15 to 17-year-olds – accounts for 95% of central government spending on youth services.

But the Local Government Association said only 12% of eligible teens took part in 2016.

The government said the service has improved 400,000 young people’s lives and was investing another £80 million on youth projects.

But the LGA said it was “wrong” that funding was tied up in one “very short programme”, saying more than 600 youth centres had closed between 2012 and 2016. Read more

EU students get post-Brexit fees promise

EU students at universities in England will continue to be treated the same as home students in the first intake after Brexit.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds says EU students starting in autumn 2019 will pay the same tuition fees as English students and their access to support will be unchanged.

This status will last for the duration of their degree courses. Mr Hinds said he wanted to provide “clarity and certainty”.

The Scottish government has already made a similar commitment to EU students starting in Scottish universities in autumn 2019 – which will mean they will continue to pay no tuition fees.

Alistair Jarvis, chief executive of Universities UK, said it would provide “much needed clarity for EU students and for universities”.

No ‘cliff edge’
For universities, worried about their student numbers and finances, it means there will be no “cliff edge” for recruitment from the EU immediately after Brexit in March 2019.

It might also be seen as a conciliatory gesture, ahead of negotiations in which the UK’s universities hope to maintain access to a share of 100bn euros (£89bn) of EU research funding.

There are about 135,000 EU students in UK universities and vice-chancellors recently called for “urgent clarification” about the status of EU students who might apply for courses beginning in autumn 2019.

So far there is no long-term decision or reciprocal deal on how UK students in the EU, or EU students in the UK, will be treated post-Brexit.

If EU students were to be classified as overseas students, their fees would be much higher which could deter them from studying in the UK.

There are 135,000 EU students in UK universities – with their status to remain unchanged for at least another year. Read more




TESYouth 5 years Anniversary

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 Marketingclick 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.
