UCS looking for for young unemployed

Our friends at University Campus Suffolk (UCS) have been commissioned to conduct research with young people who have been unemployed for more than 3 months. Shouldn’t be hard to find you might think! See below . . .

‘UCS has been commissioned to investigate what unemployed young people believe will assist them to progress into employment, training or additional learning. Furthermore, this research will focus on young people who have been out of work for more than 3 months. The findings will provide evidence to inform the development of initiatives to support every young person effectively on their journey towards employment, and eradicate the current blight of youth unemployment.

We are seeking assistance in contacting young unemployed people so that they can share their views and experiences and most importantly, participate in this vital development to transform the opportunities to gain employment. We would be very grateful if you would be kind enough to forward this onto any organisations that work with unemployed young people in the greater Ipswich area. We hope to collect all data within 6 weeks, as such all help regarding this matter would be very much appreciated.

For further information please contact us on: pie@ucs.ac.uk

Thank you all in advance.
