The Employment Alliance Toolkit is a set of resources to help regions establish an “Employment Alliance” the purpose of which is to empower young unemployed or underemployed graduates to become entrepreneurs and high value employees in a short period after leaving university. Two Alliances have been established to date, this toolkit records their experiences, the techniques and processes used, and the lessons learnt.

How Can We Help

With this toolkit you will be able to do most by yourself. However, you may find it useful to hire an external consultant to moderate the initial meeting and workshop, and to guide you through the process. Feel free to contact us.

Employment Alliance teaching and training

We also have designed and created a classroom based training course called “Innovation for Enterprise and Employment” This course is targeted at recent graduates, and especially at arts and humanities graduates, among whom the rate of under employment is greatest.  The course comprises of 7 modules focusing on the concept of innovation in order to harness employment opportunities. It is designed for teachers, lecturers and tutors teaching adult learners, including; graduates, undergraduates and the interested public and can be found here.
