Integrated Youth Support

Sharing success to shape future workforce development

In 2010-11, CWDC funded consortia in nine areas of England to enhance integrated youth support services training covering graduate recruitment, advanced apprentices and those undertaking foundation degrees.The consortia included a range of organisations including the voluntary sector.

In these case studies the areas share their key learning experiences and provide ideas and insight which can help to shape future workforce development.

  • Working in partnership
    The Rotherham Partnership
    As a result of working together the consortium is strong - there is a recognised umbrella body which helps enormously. The project has opened up the sector. Training and support is now available to all organisations working with Children and young people and families.

    • Long term sustainability and support for learners
    The Hertfordshire Partnership

    As our apprentices knowledge and experience has developed so has their impact on their placement organisation, shaping the services they provide. Having a young person, within the team, who is not much older than members of our targeted group, creates a rapport and empathy. Working alongside another young person who has experienced difficulties finding work, they have built a relationship of mutual benefit and understanding.

    For us it has been a positive programme which has enabled workforce development to be moved forward at a time where funding is limited.
