A great chance to speak to the team at Inspire Suffolk and the young people involved in their youth program. This project focuses on developing young people’s skills to prepare them for the world of work. As well as paving the way for success and future employment, this program brings young people together to talk about other topics like their mental health. For example, today they raised reliance on public transport – especially when this is unreliable and expensive, and how this can impact employment prospects.
Making sure that local people are able to take full advantage of high-paid job opportunities means making sure our people have the right skills. This project prepares young people for their futures, giving them the tools they need as successful and independent adults thriving in employment.
A great discussion here today with the young people at Inspire Suffolk, the future of Ipswich looks bright!
Thank you to Terry Baxter and Jay Wallace-Lagan from Inspire Suffolk Prince’s Trust Qualifications.
