Recognising businesses that support young people on their journey to a successful working life

Young people in Wales continue to face structural barriers to entering the workforce such as:

  • Reduced opportunities for students to experience working life while at school;

  • Unclear and unfair recruitment practices which disadvantage those without experience;

  • Entry level roles that offer little development and progression.

Yet at the same time, many businesses (as high as 61% in some surveys) report that they struggle to recruit young, work-ready staff.

The GE Aviation Wales Inspiring Young Talent Award celebrates those responsible businesses that help young people into employment by connecting complementary youth programmes that support them at multiple points on the journey into work.


Successful applicants will be able to clearly demonstrate an approach that links two or more of the following:

  • Programmes providing structured experiences of work during school which better inform and prepare pupils for the world of work.

  • Programmes which make opportunities for young people accessible through fairer and more transparent recruitment practices or traineeships/apprenticeships.

  • Programmes which improve the quality of employment and provide development opportunities for young people to progress their careers.
