The government has outlined its new strategy to upskill the UK’s young jobseekers.
Drawing together the government’s approach to apprenticeships, pre-employment training and further education, the strategy aims to ‘put rigour and responsiveness at the heart of our skills system,’ said skills minister Matthew Hancock.
A new traineeship programme will be rolled out for 16 to 24-year-olds without experience of finding or being in work. It will include employability workshops, work experience placements and English and Maths training for those without a GCSE grade C or above in those subjects.
The government said it will encourage a collaborative effort between job centres, colleges and Whitehall departments to ensure the programme’s success.
