YouPro Project Beneficiaries

Project beneficiaries fall into three main groups:

1) Young people not in education, employment or training

The project aims to develop and implement a training and work placement scheme that equips young people with a direct pathway into employment, self-employment or further vocational training. Participants will receive practical business training, an intensive course in online marketing and real-world business experience. We are engaging with young people not in education, training or employment to offer them the opportunity to take up a place on the scheme.

If you are aged 16-24 and are interested in what YouPro has to offer, why not contact us?

2) Small-to-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and micro-sized organisations

The project aims to engage with SMEs and micro-sized organisations, particularly those who are interested in developing their online marketing strategy. Participant organisations will benefit from an internee who will develop and implement a new online marketing strategy for the company. The internee’s training will ensure that the basic skills needed to operate in the business environment are in place, and that the online marketing strategy focuses on your organisation’s growth priorities.

If you are a manager in an SME or micro-sized organisation, it would be great to hear from you; please get in touch.

3) Government Agencies

The project aims to engage with government agencies and not-for-profit organisations who are working with young people not in education, employment or training. A good example is Jobcentre Plus, the main employment support service in the UK. We offer an innovative programme that equips young people with skills and workplace experience, and signposts a route into employment, self-employment or further training.

If you work at Jobcentre Plus or another agency working with young people, it would be great to hear from you; please get in touch.
