How it works
Get Into helps bridge the skills gap – breaking down the barriers between unemployed and disadvantaged young people, and employers – resulting in meaningful and sustainable employment for young people with companies such as Marks & Spencer, HSBC, DHL and Balfour Beatty. The course provides training from qualified professionals and aims to build up a young person’s skill set, improve their communication skills, and boost their confidence, ultimately leading them into paid employment. The ultimate goal is to employ successful candidates into the business running the course, and in general 50% of participants achieve paid job outcomes. Those young people not employed at the end of the course are offered mentor support to help them use the experience and skills developed on the programme to find employment or move into other outcomes (such as education, training or volunteering).
