In December 2017, 5600 people in Shropshire were unemployed.

We want to create more opportunities for people to gain employment and develop skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

How do we help prevent this?

• We will offer post 16 employment programmes that will equip young people with the skills and qualifications they need to successfully sustain employment.
• We will offer a volunteer programme that will provide opportunities for 14 – 25 year olds to access industry specific work based learning.
• We will offer post-16 education programmes through sport which will support progression to further education and employment.
• We will support schools in inspiring young people by providing sports coaching, cross curricular teaching resources and stadium visits.
