Talent Match London; programme was designed through a partnership approach, ensuring that the programme benefits from the expertise and experience of organisations from the voluntary sector, statutory sectors, employers and young people. London Youth work with outstanding organisations to collaborate with and deliver the programme at a local level. The programme has three Local Delivery Partnerships (based in and across the 11 selected boroughs), two Specialist Support Organisations (for young parents and carers and young people with disabilities) and an Enterprise Pathway Provider. WWM provide support and interventions for young fathers.
Unlike almost all other employability programmes, Talent Match has been designed by young people, in partnership with employers and the voluntary sector. Talent Match has a genuine focus on enabling young people who face the biggest barriers – such as through living with a disability or having caring responsibilities – to have more and better opportunities to get into sustainable jobs and careers. The programme will invest in local partnerships, creating one-to-one support, outreach, skills development and employer engagement in the areas where they are most needed.
