2. Youth Employer Pledge
The Youth Employer Pledge was created to recognise the commitment and leadership of organisations working to support youth employment.
Youth Employer Pledge partners are committed to:
- finding ways to engage with young people who are looking for work
- creating more opportunities, pathways, and support for young people to find employment and stay employed.
For more information, visit the Youth Employer Pledge website.
3. Community youth employment initiatives

- education providers
- other stakeholders.
The initiatives can be:

YouthFull is a unique learning and recruitment platform designed specifically to help young people with limited experience and qualifications, to begin their careers.
It provides direct access to employers and jobs, instead of having to go through a standard recruitment application process requiring a CV.
Instead, it allows young people to pitch for jobs directly to employers, using video, presentations or any format they like.
YouthFull also provides free online courses to help young people get the skills employers are looking for, like communication, time management and self-awareness.
