Southwark Council Next Steps for young people

Council helps young people set sights on next steps along career path

13 January 2021

Southwark Council is linking young people in the borough with local opportunities geared towards helping them achieve a bright future, in response to the disruption to education and youth unemployment crisis caused by the pandemic.

As part of the new initiative, the council will be working closely with local businesses and other partner organisations to help create and broaden the range of opportunities available to young people in Southwark.

In September 2020, when UK unemployment rose to its highest rate for two years, young workers aged 18 to 24 years experienced the biggest drop in employment compared to all other age groups.

The council’s new initiative promotes a raft of opportunities available to young people aged 16 to 25 years old in Southwark to help support them into employment and training, from internships to apprenticeships; jobs to voluntary roles; NVQs to university degrees.

One example is Southwark Council’s internship programme. Applications are open until 24 January 2021 for paid internships across a variety of council departments for Southwark residents aged 16 to 24, who need help to get on the career ladder.

Young people who are thinking about their next steps in education, training or work are encouraged to join Southwark Council’s mailing list to receive news on job vacancies and career information in and around Southwark. Visit www.southwark.gov.uk/nextstepmailinglist for more information.
