The Good Jobs Campaign tackles the lack of decent work-based training for young people from disadvantaged schools and communities by working with employers in the high skill sectors and education institutions to create high quality training pathways into good jobs for young people.
Each training programme is co-designed by the Good Jobs Campaign team, employers and education institutions to ensure they are high in quality and industry-relevant. Currently active are two training pathways delivered and designed around the engineering and creative sectors; Pathways to Engineering with Atkins and Pathways to Creative Industries with Wieden + Kennedy.
Students on all training programmes will participate in core employability skills training workshops facilitated by the Good Jobs Campaign team with support from J.P. Morgan and their employees. All programmes culminate in the participants delivering to a brief given to them by the employer and pitching their solution in front of an industry panel.
All students will receive support from workplace mentors, a reference at the end of the programme, and the opportunity to apply for high quality apprenticeships, paid internships and work experience opportunities with our partner employers.
Take a look at some of the responses we’ve received from the programmes so far.
