Building Employability Success With Keepmoat

Fifteen participants from the Newcastle United Foundation Barclayโ€™s Premier League Works Employability Programme benefitted from a site visit in Kenton courtesy of Foundation partners Keepmoat.

The Foundation is currently working with these 16-25 year olds to help them develop skills that will help them secure work experience with partner organisations.ย  Our employability programmes aim to inspire young people who are a distance from the job market to gain skills and reach their potential. โ€จ

As a long term partner of the Foundation, Keepmoat is the first business to offer their support of the project by opening their doors to the participants.ย  In addition to having a tour of the building site the visitors were given an insight of the opportunities and roles available within the construction industry.ย 

The Foundation is aiming to build on previous successes of Employability projects, where 40% of previous participants progressed into training, education or employment.

Newcastle United Foundation Development Manager Sarah Medcalf said:

โ€œWeโ€™re absolutely delighted that Keepmoat have been able to offer this opportunity to our participants.ย 

โ€œIt is hugely important that young people are aware of what jobs are available in the region and by offering this course and helping these individuals engage with employers such as Keepmoat weโ€™re giving them the tools to develop their career ambitions.ย 

โ€œWe see first hand how much of a difference projects like this can make to peopleโ€™s lives and we would love to hear from any businesses that would be able to support us in developing these young people by offering work experience.โ€ย 

Lee Francis, Area Director for the North East commented:ย 

โ€œAt Keepmoat we are committed and passionate about supporting local people.

โ€œWeโ€™re delighted that we have been able to continue our partnership with Newcastle United Foundation for the third year in a row.ย  Programmes like this play a vital role in the community by supporting young people to get into full time employment by expanding their skills and knowledge.

โ€œThis is another shining example of how other organisations can get involved in helping young people by opening their doors to give them an insight into the construction industry.

โ€œWe are pleased that on the back of these events, we have offered work placements to some of the candidates on a few of our schemes which are underway in Newcastle.โ€

Newcastle United Foundation would be delighted to hear from any organisation that could support this project by offering any or all of the following: work experience placements of between one and two weeks, real life interview experience, site visits and seminars on specific industry sectors. ย  ย  ย  ย
