Future Skills

Scarborough – ESF

Futureworks NY

This project will deliver new skills and qualifications to disengaged young people that will enable them to move closer to new opportunities such as employment or further learning.

Working with disenfranchised young people within the local area, this project enables young people the opportunity to focus on qualifications they once thought unachievable.  Once a young person has achieved something tangible this can be the catalyst to them striving to be better and achieving more.  Each young person will work towards Functional Maths and / or English in line with their own abilities and requirements.  This will increase not only their knowledge but also their confidence in using Maths and English skills within their personal life as well as future employment prospects.

Participants will also work on a City & Guilds Employability qualification, further enhancing skills and knowledge of career planning, applying for and sustaining employment.  This qualification can be tailored to personal interests and career plans as well as the ability to produce a portfolio according to their own abilities.  This qualification enables young people to practice their job searching skills whilst achieving a qualification and applying for actual jobs with the support of an experienced member of staff.
