EVERY young person in Cambridgeshire who has been unemployed for six months or more, including 180 in Huntingdonshire, has been promised a job, training or work experience.
The Young Person's Guarantee, supported by up to 470,000 opportunities nationally over the next 15 months, will help Cambridgeshire's long-term unemployed 18 to 24-year-olds.
As the guarantee becomes available across the UK, Ministers are calling for businesses to help by creating even more opportunities for young people. They will promise Government support to businesses who give young people a job, apprenticeship or internship.
Young people are already getting help from the major increase in education and training places this year, and the expansion of specialist help and support through job centres working with local employers, the Department for Work and Pensions said.
Hundreds of thousands of young people have already received help to find work, training or an education place. However, Ministers believe more help is needed as the economy recovers to avoid the problem of youth unemployment continuing to rise for years after the recession has ended, a spokesman added.
