Tesco and The Prince’s Trust’s jobs boost for 500 unemployed young people
Tue, 10 Jun 2014
A new programme to help 500 unemployed young people find jobs has been launched by The Prince's Trust and supermarket chain Tesco.
The new programme – Launch – offers unemployed 18-to-24-year-olds employability skills training, hands-on experience and mentoring to help them find jobs.
The programme has already gone through a successful pilot period in London, where it helped 12 young people to secure jobs at Tesco, and will now be rolled out in other areas of the country with high levels of youth unemployment including Glasgow, Liverpool, Middlesbrough, Birmingham and North Wales.
All participants will receive ongoing support from Tesco and The Prince's Trust following the four-week scheme.
