Liverpool City Region programme shortlisted for national award

THE Liverpool City Region's Youth Employment Gateway (YEG) programme is through to the finals of the Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) awards which take place later this week. More than 130 nominations were received across ten categories, with YEG entered as a finalist in the innovation category.  Youth Employment Gateway supports unemployed Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, St Helens, Sefton and Wirral's 18 to 24 year olds into work. Over the last 21 months, the programme has supported over 3,500 unemployed young people, with over 1,300 finding employment.

Participants on the programme are placed with a dedicated advisor who can provide ongoing support tailored to their specific needs. They are also given a personalised budget which they can use to buy goods or services upto the value of £500, which they believe will help improve their employment prospects. Participants also have access to a range of online tools via YEG's website, which can help them search and apply for jobs and apprenticeship and manage their personalised budget. The ERSA awards recognise and celebrate those involved in helping to move people towards, enter and progress in work. The winners will be announced on 21 July 2016.

Cllr Ian Maher, the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority's lead for Employment and Skills, said:- "To be nominated for such a prestigious award is an achievement itself but I wish the programme every success on Thursday at the ERSA Awards evening. We have received some fantastic feedback from participants on the programme so we know that is really delivering what both residents who are looking for work and employers who are looking for staff want and need in the Liverpool City Region. Good luck!"
