In 2018/19 the APPG for Youth Employment will look closely at three topics that impact on youth employment. For each topic the APPG will hold a series of meetings where in the first meeting an external expert will be asked to give evidence on that topic, at the 2nd meeting MP’s and organisations from constituencies around the UK will be invited to give evidence and at the 3rd meeting the relevant Minister will be invited to attend and present.
During each series an inquiry will be launched inviting organisations to respond to questions relating to that topic. The responses will be gathered and presented to the relevant Minister/and or colleagues from the department and published at the end of each series.
Series 5 – Employer support for youth employment
Focus of the inquiry
Considering the role government is asking employers to play in Careers Education, Apprenticeships, T-Levels, Work Experience and Welfare we want to explore what is working well, where there may be tension in the systems and how prepared schools, colleges are to support these asks.
Are all young people able to access the quality support they need from employers, are employers at saturation point, as the scale and ask grows how can we ensure quality across all engagements and how are SME’s being supported to engage with this agenda?
This series will be an opportunity to examine the Government’s key asks of employers. It will also be an opportunity for business to share their experiences; Members of Parliament to highlight the work taking place in their constituencies; for the APPG to explore if there is still more work to do; and examine what delivery of future work in this policy area might look like.
