Whether they’ll do much to help solve youth unemployment or not, some people will get some very well-paid jobs out of this!
Fraser House, Ipswich is the new location for a pioneering approach to youth unemployment.
In October 2013, Ipswich was unveiled as the location of the MyGo centre which will open in November 2014. The centre will pioneer a new approach to helping young people get into work.
Led by businesses, local councils, New Anglia LEP and Jobcentre Plus; this programme supports aims to halve youth unemployment in the greater Ipswich area over the next two years.
The MyGo centre will offer all 16-24 year olds in Ipswich and the surrounding area free training, career and employment support.
The project is being funded by money unlocked through the Greater Ipswich City Deal – the government’s flagship programme to devolve power to local authorities and businesses to put them in control of economic opportunities and challenges.
EOS Works Ltd, a training and welfare company owned by the Staffline Group plc, has recently been appointed by Suffolk County Council to operate the MyGo Centre and deliver the service.
Outreach services will also be provided from mid-2015 across Greater Ipswich; including those living in Babergh, Mid Suffolk and Suffolk Coastal. This will include the use of EOS’s new tablet software – allowing users to access services without the need to travel.
Work has already started on fitting out the MyGo centre and creating an inspiring, modern and supportive environment. It will be staffed by Jobcentre Plus, EOS and Tomorrows People employees working together so that young people can access all the help they need in one place.
Tomorrows People is a National Employment Charity with a 30 year track record of helping young unemployed people into sustained employment and is partnering EOS on this initiative.
Our dedicated welfare to work division, incorporating EOS and 2014 acquisition Avanta, provides a ground-breaking and highly effective approach to reducing worklessness. Our Employment Centres offer jobseekers practical, sector-specific experience of working in various professional directions, placing them back into sustainable employment.
Staffline Recruitment Group has denied accusations in a BBC Inside Out documentary that it exploits Eastern European workers.
The documentary claimed that the jobs and wages which the workers were promised in Poland were not always delivered when they arrived in the UK. And it alleged that accommodation in the UK, provided by the recruiter, was often overcrowded and in poor condition.
Staffline Recruitment Group managing director Andy Hogarth dismissed the claims.
“The allegations and insinuations in the BBC programme were entirely unfounded and based on poor information,” he argued. “From showing ’cramped’ accommodation, which we had not provided, to filming a former contractor who bemoaned the lack of expected overtime.”
Hogarth said the company, which employs 3,500 workers from Europe, consistently engages with relevant agencies to ensure workers’ interests are protected. These include the Gangmaster Licensing Authority, the Agricultural Labour Providers Association and the Temporary Labour Working Group, as well as the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers.
Meanwhile the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has voiced concerns about the generally negative portrayal of recruitment agencies and the suggestion that migrant workers are systematically exploited.
Tom Hadley, the REC director of external relations commented: “Instances of bad practice must of course be addressed but the general tone of the programme is wide of the mark.
“The vast majority of agencies provide a valuable and ethical service to job-seekers looking to work in the UK and to employers with staff shortages.”
Tomorrow’s People also has a very dodgy background.
“2011 Coalition government launches the Work Programme, reflecting payment by results policy Tomorrow’s People has long argued for.
Praxis, research and innovation unit, launched to test new solutions to unemployment.
Independent report estimates every £100 spent on Tomorrow’s People programmes benefits society by £240.
Heathfield Works! launched to offer a lifeline to unemployed young people in isolated rural communities.
ThinkForward, pioneering programme with Private Equity Foundation to improve work prospects of young people while still in school, launched.”
Tomorrow’s people was prominent in the failed “Getting Families Ready for Work” programme.
Scott, who accepted an offer last year to become a Conservative peer, appeared in a full-page picture on page 14 of the Conservative Party’s 2010 election manifesto, Invitation to Join the Government of Britain.
Many will say that this Ipswich initiative is a Conservative Party publicity stunt.
