We believe employing young people brings a wide range of benefits, such as;

·        More diverse and creative approaches to problem solving

·        Energises the workplace with increased adaptability to change 

·        Cost-effective way to grow a workforce

·        Encourages shared values and good practice

·        Insight into changing markets

·        Increased loyalty and reduced staff turnover 

On Track is a new service, which aims to remove barriers to employment for some of Norfolk’s most vulnerable young people. It is focused on maximising the opportunities of 16 to 24 year olds furthest from the labour market, to access the skills, qualifications and the self-confidence needed to secure and sustain employment.

It provides a package of short training courses tailored to personal needs with a systematic focus on getting participants training, education and work ready. It is led by the Matthew Project in partnership with YMCA, ACE, GYROS, NANSA and The Princess Trust.  It is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund as part of Building Better Opportunities programme. 

On Track provides free support and training for employers of On Track participants.  We train work-based mentors to support young people and offer training to staff to raise awareness of issues such as mental health in the work place.

Find out how you and your organisation can get involved by joining us at our launch event on Thursday 23rd November 08.30 – 11.00 at Kings Centre, Kings Street Norwich, NR1 1PH.
