Youth Hub launches with a skills day

Our Youth Hub launched with a day of skill boosting and CV writing to empower young people with the knowledge to successfully find employment.

To launch our new Youth Hub, Shrewsbury Town FC Foundation welcomed 16 – 24-year-olds to the Brew & Amber Cafe for a skills workshop covering a range of useful tools to help them gain employment. Through our partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions and Shrewsbury Job Centre, we have been able to offer a range of opportunities to those seeking their next steps towards a career.

The programme was kicked off with a presentation delivered by Mark O’Neil from the National Careers Service who provided advice on CV and personal statement writing. Other subjects were covered on the day by Peter Clarke, manager of the Youth Hub, and included setting smart targets and a skills assessment which provided useful reflection for the attendees. To round off the day we held a stadium tour and a Q&A session to answer any lingering questions.

“We are committed to encouraging more people on to the program and look forward to working with those in attendance today.

In addition to the Youth Hub we also have our Make Sport Work program in which anyone with a sports orientated focus can sign up for (restrictions do apply) offering training and pathways into sport or sports related occupations.”

– Peter Clarke, Youth Hub Manager

The Youth Hub is a six week course delivered in Shrewsbury, Telford & Wrekin, and is led by Shrewsbury Town Foundation. The programme is designed to give 16 to 24 year-olds the necessary skills to help them shape their journey to success!
