‘We are delighted to build on our longstanding partnership with Futureversity and to further contribute to increasing the skills and employment prospects of young people in the local area.’
Wendy Lloyd, Director, Community Investment, Barclays
Futureversity works with all kinds of businesses and organisations to deliver quality courses to young people. From Barclays to London Metropolitan University, Timberland Boot Company to community project, ‘A’ Team Arts, our wide range of partnerships enable young people to get a real insight into different careers and help them through their transition into work. And in the current climate of record-breaking youth unemployment figures, what could be more valuable than that?
Deliver a Job Ready Programme with us
We’ve delivered our employability programme, Job Ready, in partnership with a whole range of companies, from Morgan Stanley to Rinse FM, and are always looking for more. Over the course of the 11-week programme, industry professionals teach unemployed young people about different aspects of their work and help with CV writing and mock interviews. The company may also fund the programme and/or offer work experience placements. We get extremely positive feedback from both staff and young people and the programme is incredibly effective – around 61% of our Job Ready students are in work or training within six months of completing it.
If your organisation is interested in delivering a Job Ready Programme with us, please call our Job Ready team on 020 7247 7900 or email info [@] futureversity.org
Deliver a course with us
Many companies run courses with us, particular during the summer, giving young people a taster into different careers. We’ve run courses on a whole range of careers from Marketing with HSBC, Architecture with Architecture 00:/, Filmmaking with Chocolate Films and even Actuaries with Hymans Robertson and we always receive great feedback from both staff and young people alike.
If your organisation would like to run a summer course with us, contact our Programmes team on 020 7247 7900 or email email@example.com
From providing us with venue space to training staff, apprenticeship programmes to fundraising, we’re always open to ideas when it comes to establishing new partners. If your organisation is interested in getting involved with Futureversity, we’d love to discuss the options with you.
