A charity is calling on businesses to donate time, money and expertise to give young people in Rhondda Cynon Taf the practical skills and knowledge they need to get a job.
Young Enterprise wants firms to go into schools and share the skills and attitudes with pupils that will help them become employable staff and potentially successful entrepreneurs.
– Anne Colwill, Young Enterprise manager for Wales
We have many caring and socially aware employers in Rhondda Cynon Taf. They are concerned however, that many potential young recruits are leaving school with good grades but without the softer employability skills that would make them suitable to take on.
With the 'Save a Lost Generation' campaign we are asking business leaders to go into classrooms to inspire the students by passing on the skills and attitudes that will help them become employable staff and potentially successful entrepreneurs.
