Greater Manchester Talent Match is a Big Lottery- funded programme bringing together the private, public and voluntary sectors to support young people aged 18 - 24 who have been out of employment, education or training for twelve months or more and who need extra support to help them along their pathway to work. Visit our website for more information.
With the programme end date fast approaching it's been an incredibly busy month. We've been a conference hosting; report publishing; video producing; press releasing juggernaut. Thanks to all of those whose hard work made all of this possible. We expect November and December to be equally ‘full-on’ as Talent Coaches submit final claims for young people who may be moving into or sustaining employment and education outcomes. We will also be waiting with bated breath for news on our application to the Big Lottery's Reaching Communities fund. Success would allow us to continue providing support for hidden young people for a further two years.
Job Opportunities with Cars 4 Carers, Oldham: No care work / driving experience necessary, yet they’re offering a job, training in community care and a driving licence at the end of it!
Achieve Your Goals @ National Football Museum: From (probably?!) the greatest footballing city in the world (this side of Brazil!), free adult learning courses with a soccer flavour!
Broadcast Operator Apprenticeship @ BBC, Salford: for those interested in the technical side of broadcasting, bringing the news home to us!

On Tuesday, 6th November, we will be hosting an informal event to celebrate Talent Coaches' involvement in the programme. Talent Coaches have been the heartbeat of our programme. Their empathy, resiliience and loyalty has made a massive difference to the young people we've supported. The day will be an opportunity to reflect and celebrate their dedication.
On 11th December we are hosting an end-of-programme employer workshop. This will also be a celebration event but will contain important information about how employers can carry forth what we've learned since 2013. More information will be sent directly to employers in the coming days. The booking link can be accessed here.
