Your Housing Group help young people become their own boss

Your Housing Group help young people become their own boss

Three of the city’s largest organisations have teamed up to provide enterprise apprenticeships for young people in Liverpool and the city region.
Your Housing Group, one of the UK’s largest housing associations, First4Skills and City of Liverpool College have put together a six month training programme that will be based on enterprise and give an insight into the business world. The course aimed at 16-18 year olds, focuses on young people who are thinking of becoming their own boss, offering learners experience with some of the regions biggest employers.
The programme is designed to get away from the formal environment of college and allow learners to develop skills in a manner that allows them to gain five qualifications (Work Placement Accreditation, Functional Skills: English, Maths, ICT, and an Enterprise Accreditation) whilst keeping their independence. As well as this, the young people will have the opportunity to be involved in general tutorial and enrichment activities.
Ben Osu, community projects officer for Your Housing Group said:
“Everyday we work to help people in our communities’ live better lives. Through community projects that reduce isolation and improve confidence, the regeneration of the physical landscape or training initiatives such as this we hope to improve the quality of the lives of our residents and wider communities. It’s often said that young people are our future leaders and game changers, we want to help them in their mission.”
The course will consist of ten weeks’ worth of work experience, nine weeks working on functional skills in English Maths and ICT, and ten weeks working on their enterprise skills and projects.
The trio of organisations are looking for young people aged 16-18 that might not be in employment or formal training to take up the spaces. To find out more information, or to book a place, please ring Kathryn on 01744 670221 x 1776.
