5.2 Turn education success into career success

  • Organisations should come together to develop a youth employment strategy for the city.
  • This should include developing a business led education forum to support every school and their teachers to develop strategic relationships with local firms.
  • The council and local businesses should support schools to adopt established models of work-based learning in school education.
  • Clearer signposting to employment opportunities should be established with a simplified ‘roadmap’ for accessing employment services.
