New Directions – Youth Employment Initiative

New Directions is a Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) scheme aimed at people aged 15 to 29 who are classed as NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) and delivered across Tees Valley.

Careers advisors will be on hand to identify a range of training and practical support options, including mentoring, apprenticeships, job placements and further education, to find a job that will enable them to reach their potential.

The project will also include a flexible fund to assist young people in overcoming the barriers such as the lack of the right skills preventing them progressing and finding the right employment.
