NYA launches “The Employability Support Programme”

With support from Barclays, the National Youth Agency (NYA) is investing £1 million into the youth sector, delivering employability and life skills training for up to 100,000 disadvantaged young people aged 14-25 between January and December 2015.

“The Employability Support Programme” is part of Barclays ‘5 Million Young Futures’ commitment, providing the next generation with the skills they need to support themselves, creating a ripple effect for their families and their local communities.

It will enhance existing projects already working with the above-mentioned target group of young people.
