Hull is benefitting from an additional £3.7m from the European Union’s Youth Employment Initiative to help young people between 15 and 24 years old find work.
The managing partners for the initiative, Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, Hull City Council and the Department of Work and Pensions, are inviting organisations with an interest in accessing the funding to a practitioners event on Friday 27 March, from 2pm – 3.30pm at the World Trade Centre, 48 Queen Street, Hull HU1 1UU.
Theresa Chalmers, Executive Director Employment and Skills at Humber LEP said, “Funding could be for activities such as extending the provision of apprenticeships, work experience placements and youth entrepreneurship programmes. This is additional money to the Humber which will enable successful activities to be expanded, new initiatives supported to help more young people access employment and training in Hull.”
The programme for the event is on the Humber LEP website at www.humberlep.org
