Nottingham City Council has designed a range of activities to support young people who are NEET (not in education, employment or training) and young, unemployed city residents to help them into education, training and employment.
Called Nottingham Works, this support is funded by the European Social Fund and Youth Employment Initiative. You can read the real stories of young people who have been supported by Nottingham Works and the Nottingham Jobs Service in our new blog – www.jobs-blog.com
Nottingham Works is delivered by a number of partner organisations throughout the city and includes:
Intensive Careers Support:
This is delivered by Futures for 16 and 17 year olds who have no further education, training or job to move into and aims to help them overcome any barriers to education or employment, complete applications and prepare for interviews.
Nottingham Works Plus – Employment and Skills Support:
This is delivered by community partners across Nottingham city to support 16 to 29 year olds from BAME communities or are facing barriers to work and who need additional support to find suitable job vacancies, complete job applications and prepare for interviews.
Nottingham Works Plus – Support for young people with disabilities and/or health conditions:
For 16 to 29 year olds who have special educational needs or disabilities.
