Young People of Birmingham have there say

"Young people in Birmingham are being asked for their views on the help, support and opportunities they get to find jobs or further education and training after turning 16...
West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is piloting the Transition to Work scheme, which will work with young people and employers across the region to reduce youth unemployment and boost opportunities for those aged 16 to 24.
A number of workshops are being held in Birmingham this summer to give 16 to 24-year-olds the chance to share their views – and get free pizza!"
Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, said:
"The West Midlands is experiencing significant growth, with record levels of job creation across the region. However, levels of youth unemployment remain stubborn – which is why getting more young people into work is one of our key priorities. These workshops give young people an opportunity to help shape how this pilot will work – it's vital we get their input to ensure the programme works for them."
