Young people aged 15-24 can develop life skills, increase their confidence and enhance their career prospects through a programme being delivered by our Riverside Training team.

The programme aims to increase young people’s employability skills, build resilience and raise aspirations while integrating learning to improve key skills.

These include literacy, numeracy, and digital skills covering social media awareness and the importance of online safety.

As part of the programme, we will also deliver a Launch Pad summer school project aimed to help 14-19-year-olds to improve communication and promote independent living.

It will run two days a week over four weeks and help learners prepare for exams or employment.

Riverside Training has been awarded funding by CLIP to deliver Career Net to 15-24-year-olds across the county from August.

It is being co-financed by the European Social Fund and Education and Skills Funding Agency.

Emily Humphries, Career Net Project Lead at Riverside Training, said: “We’re extremely proud to extend our delivery to support more people across Lincolnshire.

“This wide-ranging programme will help young people progress towards further learning, work-based training opportunities and sustainable employment.”

Anyone interested in taking part in either scheme can email Riverside Training at enquiries@riverside-training.org.uk
