Recognising the important work that you do to help young people gain skills and prepare them for future employment
MARKING YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE FUTURE OF YOUNG PEOPLE
INVESTMENT IN YOUNG PEOPLE AWARD There continues to be significant publicity surrounding the issue of young people effectively being prepared for the world of work when they leave education. Whilst many would agree that more can be done, there is considerable existing effort provided by local employers to help young people into work which, by and large, is not fully recognised. ‘Investment in young people’ is a national scheme that recognises the important work carried out by small to medium businesses helping young people aged 5 - 25 gain employability skills.

The IiYP mark can only be used by companies that have been successful in meeting the required standard.
