Step 1 - Outreach
Face to face recruitment of young people. This happens on the streets or at the front door of young people known to us. Our target is those Not in Employment Education or Training. We build a relationship and invite them to do some work.
Step 2 - Small Projects
Young People are given opportunity to work for reward. The work consists of small internal projects and the reward may be a trip out or an activity such as a music session. This gives opportunity to slowly build basic work skills before any client facing opportunities.
Step 3 - One-Off Work
Young people are given opportunity to work at a client’s site on a one-off trial basis. This is paid employment. This step focuses on a young person learning about site conditions and requirements.
Step 4 - Employment
The is regular sustained employment. Young People are taken through a full employment process including application, references, and interview. The position is short term, ideally no more than 18 months, and focuses on a young person learning skills and doing training that will make them more employable. They are given regular supervision and the focus is progress and growth.
Step 5 - Moving On
Our aim is that young people gain experience and then move on. We pride ourselves on young people moving on and finding employment with others.
Work Bursary. If you want to support small project work we have set up an Enterprise Bursary. Any money within this bursary is spent providing young people small internal work experience projects.
