Skills Shortage & Give An Hour

By | |

Next Steps South West ( are working with the Careers & Enterprise Company (CEC) to highlight work skills, raise aspiration, enhance employability and detail higher education pathways for young people to enter into inspirational careers.

By joining up to the CEC’s Give An Hour campaign you can contribute your time and expertise to shape their journeys, have an eye to future recruitment possibilities and deal with the skills shortage in your area.

Was there someone in your life that made a difference to the career choices you made? Could you open the eyes of a young person to an exciting or fulfilling career that they didn’t even know existed?

The Give An Hour campaign invites you to change the lives of the young people in your area by giving up as little as one hour of your time. We’d particularly like to hear from you if you own or work in a small or medium sized business.

In an hour, you could change the course of a young person’s life by sharing your story or helping them understand more about the world of work. And sometimes that’s all that is needed. Could you be that someone?
