Get set go: Give a young person a start

Our Get Set Go programme is a work-focused scheme that provides unemployed young people aged 16-24 with a package of tailored support to develop their skills and confidence.

Blending individual interventions, small group work and an industry placement, the Get Set Go programme also provides an opportunity for employers to bring new talent into the organisation to see if they would be suitable for progression onto an apprenticeship or into employment.

CAN YOU HELP SUPPORT GET SET GO?

Connecting with employers from the outset, young people can enrol on a Centrepoint Works Get Set Go programme safe in the knowledge that every element of their programme will contain relevant, up-to-date content endorsed by the type of companies that they would like to forge a career with.

We are looking for employers who would be willing to work closely with the team at Centrepoint Works to co-design a high-quality work experience placement programme offering young people work experience placements for a minimum of 30 hours giving them the best possible insight into job roles, your organisation and the sector.

At the end of the work experience placement, we ask employers to consider all young people for an apprenticeship, or the opportunity to apply for vacancies within their organisation. If this is not an option, the minimum we ask is that the young person is given a feedback interview and a character reference.

If you would like to support us, please get in touch using the link below.

work experience placements: supporting young people

We also offer stand-alone work placements for young people who want to gain valuable work experience but do not wish to complete the Get Set Go programme. These work placements can be as short as one week, although ideally we would want to provide them with two weeks or more. If you can support us by providing a work placement opportunity for a young person, please get in touch.

ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES: SUPPORT WITH SOCIAL AND TEAMWORK SKILLS

We provide innovative and engaging enrichment activities that support young people in developing their character, resilience and motivation, encouraging them to pursue their goals. With the support of employers, we can develop a wide range of activities including business carousels, external speakers, site visits and mock interviews.

Providing young people with the opportunity to meet and speak to employers and employees is a really important step in preparing them for the world of work.

If you enjoy hands on practical activities and can spare some time to support young people, email us below.
