Research of 1,500 16-21 year-olds showed that many young people don't feel they have the right skills, training and experiences to get the jobs they want. So,a School-to-Work (S2W) programme across the UK to ensure young people are fully equipped with the information and skills they need to successfully move from school into work is being created.
Young people need to be at the heart of shaping the S2W programme and so this National Youth Panel is being set-up supported by the BBC, Chartered Management Institute, Developing the Young Workforce North East Scotland, EY Foundation, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations to ensure that the voice of young people is heard on S2W issues.
As a member of the National Youth Panel your commitment will require between approximately 8 and 10 hours each month and will involve monthly calls with other panel members, working with business reps to provide your perspective and representing the panel.
You will be offered a personal mentor and networking opportunities and will have expenses reimbursed.
