Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Region of Learning.
We are specifically funded to work with young people age 15-24 years old who are confirmed as being either:
• At risk of NEET
• NEET
• Unemployed
• Economically inactive

We are able to offer the following support through two delivery partners:
Form the Future
• Training and employability skills
• Basic skills and transferable skills assessment
• One-to-one career guidance sessions
• Access to work experience placements and apprenticeships
• Support with making applications
• Interview support
• Mentoring from local employers
• Workplace behaviour coaching
• Work readiness and wellbeing at work
• Introduction to self-employment
• Access to basic skills courses delivered by Cambridgeshire skills

Young people can access as much or as little of this support as they require. They can return to the project at any point over the 2.5 years that the programme is active.

Shift Momentum: IGNITE: entrepreneurial skills programme
IGNITE is a 6-month part-time programme for young people aged 16-24. There is a once-a-month intensive training day (held on a Saturday), with weekly online support and one-to-ones. It is aimed at those who are interested in developing entrepreneurial and life skills, exploring working freelance or self-employed, understanding what it takes to set up their own micro-business. The emphasis is on skills development and becoming self-employed etc is an option not a prerequisite. During the programme young people complete:

• Fundamentals of working for yourself (month one)
• Idea generation and validation (month two)
• Building a business plan (month three)
• Go to market (month four)
• Operations – mapping out and building sales (month five)
• Expanding your network (month six)
Young people can engage in both the Form the Future support and IGNITE if this is appropriate to them.

Expected outcomes for Students:
• Reduced risk of becoming NEET and increased chances of progressing into education, employment, or training post 16
• Greater employability and recognition of own skills and attributes
• Successful work experience placements with local employers and mentoring opportunities
• Development of personal and social skills, and improved behaviour
• Positive changes in Student’s attitude to learning, motivation, confidence, and self-esteem.
• Recognition of development of soft skills, experience and competencies through the Region of Learning’s digital badges and digital CV for all young people (July 2022 onwards) see: https://www.cambridgeindependent.co.uk/news/region-of-learning-to-launch-in-cambridgeshire-to-upskill-yo-9218501/ .
