Our young people deserve a decent start. If our town is to be a town that genuinely works for all our young people, it’s going to be our responsibility, all our responsibilities to use every bit of power we have to secure our young good jobs.
First Step Croydon has launched to ensure Croydon’s economic success is translated into genuine opportunities for young people and businesses in the borough. First Step is a campaign to help young people access their first experience of the workplace – recognised as a missing gap by employers and young people alike.
Young people, schools, colleges and employers are now collaborating to provide much needed opportunities such as work experience and ensure everyone’s benefiting from the outcome. So far we have over 200 new work experience placements pledged this year. Can you contribute? Please make contact.
