Youth skills development and employability

Finding employment is a major challenge facing today’s young people. We want to play a part in supporting those from all walks of life to develop the skills they need for life and work.

Our employability work is designed to increase young people’s awareness of career options, raise their aspirations, provide pathways and improve their chances of finding employment.

We also want to open up career pathways in the environmental sector to underrepresented groups.

Our current programme includes:

  • careers events
  • work experience
  • traineeships
  • apprenticeships
  • mentoring
  • graduate placements
