Aylesbury charity Action 4 Youth have launched a new program that aims to broaden the horizons of young people.

The Inspiration Programme allows participants to get an insight into a variety of different industries including:

  • Charity
  • Business
  • Arts & culture
  • Health & wellbeing
  • Police & criminal justice.

Milton Keynes Academy and Aylesbury College were named as the first two organisations to pilot the NCFE accredited one year course.

Thomas International, provider of people assessment tools, will deliver a profiling service to all students participating in The Inspiration Programme, which will measure their development, in terms of self-awareness, confidence and emotional intelligence, from the beginning to the end of the course.

The Rt Hon John Bercow MP commended Action4Youth for its innovation in developing the new programme and highlighted the speed in which the initial idea has been brought to fruition.

He went on to explain the importance of young people in shaping the future of our society and the responsibility businesses, organisations and the government has in engaging with and creating opportunities for young people.

Commenting on the launch of The Inspiration Programme, Martin Reed, Chairman of Thomas International said:

“As a business leader, I am 100% committed to giving young people every opportunity to succeed in life. By using Thomas assessments in Action4Youth’s latest programme, these students will learn how to interact with different personalities in different contexts and be given a competitive advantage as they develop into adulthood.”

Jenifer Cameron explained:

“The idea of The Inspiration Programme is to fill the gaps in existing provision by creating opportunities for young people, through direct and meaningful experiences with unique access to five important elements of our community. A crucial aspect of the programme is engaging students in real experiences, and there is an emphasis in getting them out of the classroom and into real-life situations.

“We are excited to be launching this personal development course, and look forward to watching the progression of the students who are piloting The Inspirations Programme in the 2017/18 academic year.”
