Timeline video celebrates the end of the GM Talent Match Programme

As of December 2018, delivery of the Greater Manchester Talent Match programme has officially ended. This video charts the unique approach that Greater Manchester Talent Match took to tackling youth unemployment. For the past five years this Big Lottery-funded initiative has brought together the private, public and voluntary sectors to support young people aged 18-24 who have not been in employment, education or training for twelve months or more. Almost 2,000 young people received holistic one-to-one employment support through the programme. In March 2019 we will be publishing research exploring how we achieved our aims. These will also contain recommendations for future youth employment programmes. A huge thank you to all of our delivery partners and the young people who chose to engage with us.
