It has recently been bought to my attention that travel costs for apprentices are the same price as adult fare!
Therefore, I have been gathering the views of Kirklees Council apprentices about their views on travel costs.
I am in the process of summarising the feedback received and the information will then feed into a report to the Chief Executive of the council.
If you would like to comment on travel cost, please leave a comment below!
Deputy Prime Minister announced a £1billion Youth Contract to help young unemployed people get a job.
I attended the Kirklees Council Young Employee Network and discussed how Kirklees Youth Council can create links with young workers in the council. I am now a member of the Employee Network Steering Group!
This is what I’ve been up to lately!
- Made a questionnaire about employment.
- Contacted service provides across Kirklees to ask that they get as many of their young people to complete it. I want to identify what kinds of issues young people are facing and find a way to support them.
- Attended the Young Advisors Training – Creative Engagement and Inspiring Leadership.
- Made contact with the chair of Kirklees Young Employee Network and received a response inviting me to one of their meetings.
