Working with The Key and Highlights PR, Leading Link are currently piloting a new programme designed at linking young people from across North East England with the world of business and enterprise through a series of diffferent activities and workshops.
From industry visits, specialist talks and enterprise competitions to creating bespoke work experience programmes, the aim of the programme is to broaden the horizons of the workforce of the future and offer all young people their own 'real' unique experience of the working world.
This exciting programme will stretch across a range of different industries, including engineering, retail, hospitality and media, and will involve a series of business partners opening their doors and offering a host of opportunities for young people.
A new group of young volunteers called KeyLink Agents (KLAs) will be trained up as 'opportunity spotters' and they will go into businesses, work in different aspects of the organisation with key staff and then help to deliver unique and rewarding workshops in schools across the region.
More detailed information will appear here in due course...
