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 not been in employment, education or training for twelve months or more and who need extra support to help them along their pathway to work.
RCT currently has two Talent Match Coaches who are supporting young people aged 18-25 who live in Greater Manchester to get back into work or education. Talent Coaches are providing what young people told us was missing from other youth employment schemes:- a highly personalised, holistic approach that supports them to overcome personal and practical barriers to employment.
Janet and Jane meet weekly with service users on a 1-2-1 basis to offer them support.
We are not taking referrals for new Talent Match clients at this moment as this programme is due to end in November.
