Starting Fresh

Starting Fresh

Business Support & Development Ltd, partnering with YourConsortium Ltd, are supporting young people aged between 16-25 not in education, employment or training to find opportunities to help them move into work, training or apprenticeships.

Young people can join the “Starting Fresh” programme and receive one-to-one coaching and guidance from an experienced adviser and the opportunity to undertake training to prepare them for employment. Business Support & Development Ltd are currently supporting Young People across North Yorkshire in  Northallerton, Harrogate & Skipton and surrounding areas.

As a participant in the programme you can expect to receive:

  • information, advice & guidance to help you identify a suitable pathway to achieve your goal;
  • a series of one-to-one mentoring meetings tailored to your specific goal;
  • if you want support to find employment we will help you write a great CV and apply for jobs;
  • if you think an apprenticeship might be right for you we will coach you in applying for the right one and help you secure a place;
  • and,  as part of a wider network of providers we can help you find training opportunities that are right for you, in an industry you are interested in  - Engineering, Manufacturing, Construction, Retail, ICT, Leisure, Travel & Tourism and the Arts & Media.
We work with quality providers to deliver free training as part of the programme and we can often arrange work placements to give you the experience of working in these sectors whilst you’re undergoing training.
