Come tell MPs about youth employability - 21/09/2012
We are putting together a meeting between businesses and MPs to provide evidence on the need to improve careers guidance for young people.
MPs from the House of Commons Education Select Committee will be at Bradford Chamber offices on Monday afternoon, 2.30-4pm, 22 October to hear employers' views on whether or not the careers advice system works well - if you have a view on this we'd like to know about it and to see you at the meeting.
It's a chance to tell decision-makers about problems you may have had and to influence change in this area in the future.
The type of question being asked, to which we'd like to hear views, is:
- What's your experience of young people coming to work for you?
- Are they well-suited to start work (i.e. 'oven-ready')?
- Are apprentices coming in with the right skills?
- What can schools do best to meet your needs?
- What good and bad examples have you had with work experience?
We are looking for businesses who have taken on people at both graduate level and those needing no formal training, aswell as ones taking on younger apprentices.
The MPs' committee includes Bradford East's David Ward and Calder Valley's Craig Whittaker.
If you would like to attend the meeting, please contact Mike Cartwright on 01274 230057 or firstname.lastname@example.org
