Works Better 15-25 Programme



C&K Careers are pleased to have been successful in securing two new funding opportunities with Kirklees Council. The Works Better 15-25 programme, started in January 2019 and will run for three years and will see Careers Advisers from C&K Careers working with young people aged 15-25 who are not in education, employment or training.

Young people in this target group will have the opportunity to;

  • Explore training and career opportunities

  • Learn new skills

  • Learn how to sell themselves

  • Build their confidence

  • Create a professional CV

  • Access local apprenticeship opportunities

  • Understand what skills employers are looking for.

Kirklees Council will complete the offer by sourcing local vacancies and increasing the awareness of apprenticeships with local employers. We’re looking forward to working with Kirklees Council to support young people to access training to develop basic skills and increase the number of young people who get into sustained employment.   

Works Better 15-25 is part funded through the European Social Fund is delivered in partnership with C&K Careers across the Kirklees district. It pulls together two projects aimed at supporting young people, these are the Leeds City Region Employment Hub, managed by West Yorkshire Combined Authority and the Youth Engagement and Progression Programme, managed by the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council.
