Simplying Routes to Employment for Young People
Academic Lead: Gavin Cawood, Cardiff Metropolitan University
Business Partner: Nic Rodgers, Head Tag Ltd
The project aim is to develop a website (Pointr) to simplify how young people find services that lead to employment and training on the internet. Research conducted by PDR for Careers Wales shows that when searching for opportunities in Cardiff less than 25% used local services specifically designed to assist them in finding opportunities, with the majority ending up on national Jobs boards. This greatly reduces the chances of them finding the ‘Next Step’ and remains expensive for councils to run.
