We are an educational delivery centre for the National Open College Network and have the skills and capacity to delivery our own ‘work related’ qualifications; designed with young people in mind, and delivered by people who understand and work with young people.
Our aim this year is to link most of our youth projects to a specific qualification so young people who engage with us can walk away with a real accredited qualification that will help them get a job in the future.
At present, we are running these qualifications with our Gorton Young Ambassadors project and Talent Match project, both projects are employment related projects.
Gorton Young Ambassadors – a work experience project for 11 to 16 yrs old. Linking in woith big business to prepare young people ready for a working life. We have worked with Hilton Hotels, Emirates, Laing O’Rourke, McVities, Zurich Insurance, to name just a few.
Talent Match – a Big Lottery funded project running across the country. We work with 10 long term NEETs over the year and support them into employment and then 6 months afterwards to ensure they succeed.
