RIO backs campaign to support more young people into employment

By 28th May 2014 No Comments

The All Saints Academy has teamed with the 1000 Club, a campaign that supports young people into employment.

Two students from the Academy gave a presentation on the importance of work experience and how it has benefited them, which you can watch here.

Real Ideas Organisation (RIO) is a social enterprise that also strives to improve the lives of young people, and fully supports the campaign to encourage more young people into employment.

Kate Reed, Lead Developer at RIO says, “Undertaking work experience really helps young people make realistic choices, raise their ambitions and understand what employers expect. Exciting and diverse work experience opportunities that enable young people to be inspired are really important and valuable for all involved and the 1000 club campaign really highlights this.”

RIO runs learning programmes for young people, providing them with essential employability skills and offering them work experience opportunities that they may not get elsewhere. They are also the lead body for Talent Match in Cornwall, a national employment programme for young people, funded by the Big Lottery.
