between 18 and 24 who are out of work for longer than six months
will be guaranteed the offer of a job, training or work experience
as part of government scheme.
The scheme, known as the Young Person's Guarantee, is available
from today and is aimed at creating as many opportunities as
possible for graduates and non-graduates alike.
It will provide up to 470,000 opportunities over the next 15 months
to attempt to deal with a joblessness scenario that means that
100,000 individuals are already eligible for the scheme.
Within the guarantee is a chance for internships for graduates and
non-graduates, help with self-employment, a place on a Community
Task Force, work-focused training, and the opportunity to apply for
a new job through the Future Jobs Fund.
Speaking at the launch Lord Mandleson said: "Young people have been
at the centre of Government's response to unemployment and the
recession, but we must not be complacent. Our support is an
investment in our future as we build a stronger Britain."
A survey released last week that half of graduates want more
opportunity to innovate in their jobs.
