In partnership with the West Bromwich Job Centre, the Barnardo’s Midlands On-Track Programme is organising a lunch-time event in conjunction with International Women Day, on Wednesday 8 March 2017 from 12 pm to 1.30 pm.
Barnardo’s Midlands On-Track Programme, which is funded by Santander Bank UK, is a West Midlands based employability support and mentoring scheme for NEETs young people aged 16 to 24 years old.
Since September 2016, the initiative has been involved in a series of successful collaboration activities with local job centres, in delivering a range of quality employability support and career guidance to unemployed young people.
The Mayor of Sandwell- Councillor Julie Webb, and the West Midlands Police’s Deputy Chief Constable Louisa Rolfe, will be attending the event.
The aim of the lunchtime networking event is for a small group of local female professionals and employability training providers to engage with young unemployed women and lone parents, to raise their career aspirations and offer them career guidance.
Lunch time’s refreshment will be provided, as well as information regarding employment opportunities and access to adult education and employability training courses.
The venue for the event is the YMCA West Bromwich & District Office, 38 Carter’s Green, West Bromwich B70 9LG.
