Experience Works

1st September 2020 - 31st August 2023

Experience Works supports young people aged 15-24 who are NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) or at risk of becoming NEET, across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay. This project equips them with skills for life and work, giving them the confidence to find a path to a brighter future. Managed by Petroc, Experience Works is delivered by a partnership of organisations with a wide range of expertise and experience in working with young people across the South West. This project is funded by the European Social Fund. 

We support the partnership by leading on the project’s:
  • Impact Measurement
  • Employer and Community Engagement Strategy

If you are an employer who is interested in finding out more about inclusive employment and the role that employers can play in making Devon a more inclusive place to work, or to find out more about DCT's work on evaluation and co-design, please contact Harry.Bonnell@devoncommunities.org.uk.

If you know of a young person, aged 15-24, who is NEET or at risk of becoming NEET, who may benefit from being supported to think about and plan for their future, or if you are an employer offering work placements please contact Petroc at experienceworks@petroc.ac.uk
