Help Young People

At a Black Country CIPD event yesterday, one of the speakers was from Inspiring the Future. This is a free service which sees people from all sectors and professions volunteering to go into state schools and colleges to help young people understand the working world and the jobs it has to offer.

The time commitment can be as little as one hour per year, so is not demanding. Businesses often complain that young people have little idea of what is expected of them in the world of work. There are further problems in lack of career guidance, and of unrealistic expectations of the job market. So many want to work in sport or the media! Now is the chance to do something about it.

For further information, and to volunteer, visit their site here.
