A generation of young people is at risk of being lost and we want to do our bit to help. That's why we are offering free careers support and research-proven career tools to 16 to 24 year olds and their parents and carers via our newly set up our FaceBook group, INSPiRED Teenager Plus.
We have a team of twenty highly trained and experienced careers advisers already helping young people and their parents find a new "career why" by working through our research proven programme, INSPiRED, so they can get their working lives going again and create a brighter future.
Since Covid 19 hit, millions of people's jobs and career prospects have been left in tatters with young people aged 16 to 24 being the most badly affected as UK employers across the board withdraw job offers and furlough staff.
Supported by the HM Government and The Cabinet Office as part of the Inclusive Economy Partnership, and endorsed by the Institute of Student Employers and supported by the Career Development Institute, the professional body for the sector, INSPiRED Teenager Plus is an innovative digital community learning approach is helping hundreds of parents/careers and their teenagers across the UK to work through a specially adapted version of the INSPiRED Teenager programme live together to create exciting futures and find a way through the upheaval they have experienced as a result of COVID-19.
Developed and delivered by Carolyn Parry RCDP, Founder and Lead Coach, the INSPiRED Teenager programme is a research-proven and structured approach which helps individuals create happy, successful and purposeful working lives that last by finding their "why". The content for each unit is taught via twenty minute Facebook Live sessions online each week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with each live session being recorded for those who want to watch later.
The programme includes interviews with special guests where they share magic and challenging moments about their career journeys. Guests to date have included Elizabeth L Wright, paralympian medalist, inspirational speaker and disability rights activist and Daisy Claydon, the PR mastermind behind Captain Tom's news story.
Jan Ellis, Chief Executive of the Career Development Institute says: “The Career Development Institute welcomes the ethos of INSPIRED Teenager Plus as a sector wide initiative in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Importantly, it focuses on using qualified career development practitioners to support and steer families and their teenagers through these uncertain times and beyond. We wish them every success.”
