The following questions will help us to learn about the experience young people have when trying to find work. The information you provide will help to develop ideas for a new and different way of supporting young people to increase their chances of finding work. We aim to work with partners to get the ideas funded as part of the Talent Match programme that will start in the summer of 2013.

The purpose of this questionnaire is to help identity the employment barriers faced by young people today. The results from this consultation will help develop a new programme of support for young people aged 18-24 in order to increase their employability.

The programme is called Talent Match and will start in the summer of 2013.

GMYN wants to ensure that the needs of young people are included throughout the process
