Youth Employability

We Are Futures

New Patterns was commissioned by youth specialist agency, We are Futures, to carry out a scoping and research project to identify, consult and recommend partner organisations for the design and delivery of a national youth employability programme for a major bank.

We also advised on the partnership delivery model, programme design and content to ensure it would be tailored around young people and aligned well with the client's CSR strategy.

"Philip supported us to carry out an extensive review of potential delivery partners for a new programme we were designing for a large corporate client. Using his extensive knowledge of the youth sector, he was able to identify key partnership opportunities following a thorough review of the landscape and provided recommendations and a clear rationale for those put forward. His understanding of the needs of young people helped us to shape a model for the programme that put young people at the centre to meet their needs. During meetings with the client, his personable nature meant that he was seen as a credible expert, and we have enjoyed working with him as we bring the programme to life"
