Here you’ll find the outputs from our Youth Action Forums.

Available to our network only please find a summary of the session and additional appendix with the detail from each challenge.

We held our inaugural Youth Action Forum on 13 July 2022, bringing together a group of employers and partners from across our network to discuss some of the challenges and barriers businesses are facing with regards to running work experience programmes and more importantly, potential solutions to help ensure we continue to offer quality work opportunities for young people.

The Youth Action Forum provides a space for peer-to-peer sharing, collaboration and learning from each other on how to succeed. Co-created by its participants, the style and focus of the forum will be shaped by our network, following real-world feedback and emergent issues.
