Community programme puts young people on the right track

News | Community

Young people from across Peterborough have been learning more about the world of work and writing a good CV as part of a two-week programme run by Peterborough City Councilís young peopleís service.

Ten young people aged 16 and 17 who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) took part in the programme.


It included a two day project landscaping the Crawthorne Road/Eastfield Road roundabout in the city centre with the city councilís parks, trees and open spaces team.

During the fortnight they also completed a British Safety Council health and safety course and a half accreditation of the Working with Others certificate which they will be able to complete at a later stage. They also completed a ten hour Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network (ASDAN) activities award.

The group was also offered help and advice on how to write a CV and spent a day working at Perkins in Fengate, Peterborough. On the final day the group enjoyed an aerial extreme experience at Milton Keynes.

Councillor Matthew Dalton, spokesman for young people, said: "It is commendable that these young people are showing the initiative to improve their chances of finding employment. Taking part in the programme required a great deal of commitment and I am pleased to say that not one of the young people let the team down.

"Their participation in the programme illustrates to future employers that they are hard working, dependable and can work as part of a team."

Andy Turner, Peterborough City Councilís parks, trees and open spaces manager, said: ďI was extremely impressed with how hard the young people worked and the enthusiasm that many of them showed. There was a real team spirit across the two days and the group managed to complete the project three hours ahead of schedule.Ē
