Research tells us that young black men face particular disadvantages when making the transition from education to employment, which mean they’re more likely to lack the networks, social capital and soft skills needed to find a good job.
We’re excited that the Greater London Authority (GLA) will soon launch a project to support young black men studying in alternative provision (AP) to improve their post-16 destinations, through a peer-to-peer network programme.
The network will increase participants’ exposure to a variety of careers and education pathways, provide access to relatable role models, establish a network of peers and develop participants’ network building capabilities.
Join us at this session where we will share ideas about how this project will support young black men in A.P to improve their post-16 destinations, through a peer-to-peer network programme.
The event will be an opportunity to:
• Hear more about the project
• Feed-in ideas
• Ask any questions you may have as a prospective provider
