Backing Young Britain and FJF

The announcement of the first successful bidders for the Future Jobs Fund yesterday, coincided with the launch of Backing young Britain with Yvette Cooper, Lord Mandelson, Ed Balls and John Denham joining forces.
 
182 bids were received for the Future Jobs Fund, of which 117 were awarded funding creating up to 47,000 jobs.   62 of the bids were led by local authorities, with the others being a mix of public, third sector, social enterprise and private companies.  Jobs include sports coaches, tourist ambassadors, education assistants, and roles in the green and social care sectors.  Download the list of successful bidders below.
 
The aim of Backing young Britain is to bring public and voluntary sectors together to ensure the skills and experience of young people aren't being wasted.
 
Both initiatives are inextricably linked, with the Young Person’s Guarantee being at the centre of FJF and the new campaign.  Within the Backing young Britain campaign, organisations are being asked to commit to:
 
  • Offering volunteer places
  • Providing work experience opportunities
  • Offering internships to 18 year olds and non-graduates
  • Offering graduate internships (Graduate Talent Pool website)
  • Supplying apprenticeship opportunities
  • Accessing the Future Jobs Fund
  • Engaging in a Local Employment Partnership
 
The launch of Backing Young Britain seems to be a good step in joining up the links between the recent initiatives that have been announced, and provides a more cohesive picture of investing in the future, particularly for young people.  All good news!
