College to offer support to work ready youngsters following Mygo closure

A college in Suffolk is reaching out to offer support to work ready youngsters in Ipswich following the closure of a valuable youth employment service.

Mygo – was opened in 2014 – and successfully gave support and advice to those aged between 16 and 24 living in the town.

However, since its closure Suffolk New College in Ipswich is expanding its offer of support to this age group.

Additional support will come via a recently opened facility called The Workspace.

Nadia Cenci is a business development executive at Suffolk New College.

She said: “Since the departure of Mygo, the job centre is one of the most appropriate places for young people to visit if they are uncertain about their futures. However, we believe that we can offer additional skills to work-ready youngsters living in the town and surrounding areas. For those individuals who have some qualifications and a skills set that employers are looking for, we can help make their CVs look good, give interview tips and connect them with relevant employers who are looking for apprentices.”

The Workspace was opened in September 2017 and has already helped dozens of young people gain work placements and start apprenticeships during this time.
