We are offering the opportunity to become a leader in providing virtual work experience programmes within the digital/tech sector through the launch of our business innovation support package.

Real Ideas Organisation is launching a package of business support to a limited number of digital businesses in Cornwall and Plymouth to develop and deliver an innovative and meaningful virtual work experience offer to NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) young people in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.

We are seeking expressions of interest from digital and tech businesses based in Cornwall and Plymouth or who have a remote workforce that could include these locations who are able to offer NEET young people aged 15-25 from across Cornwall / Isles of Scilly an insight into life within the digital sector in the South West.
