Find out more about the Good Youth Employment Charter
The Good Youth Employment Charter has been developed in collaboration with a range of youth employment experts and young people including The Youth Employment Group.
It aims to provide a framework to support, inspire and recognise all those employers who are committed to providing good quality opportunities to young people.
The Good Youth Employment Charter recognises the importance of the following principles:
Creating opportunity – Provide opportunities for young people to gain the skills and experiences they need, through meaningful and good quality experiences of the world of work that raise their aspirations, skills and personal networks.
Recognising Talent – Recruit young people based on their ability, talent and potential, recognising they may have limited experience. Ensure young people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority groups, as well as those young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds or those with additional needs or barriers are not unfairly excluded.
Fair Employment – Provide good quality employment opportunities for young people, such as apprenticeships, graduate roles, entry level jobs and supported internships. Offer fair and safe opportunities and rewards in accordance with the highest industry standards.
Developing People – Promote the development of all young people through on and off the job training and support so they are motivated to take ownership and responsibility for their careers, and they are equipped to progress.
Youth Voice – Listen to young people. Actively provide opportunities for their voice to be heard within a community or organisation.
