Talent Match North East Awards take place next week on Thursday 29 June. The event is co-produced and co-delivered by Talent Match staff and young people with the aim of celebrating the fantastic achievements of those involved in the programme.
Two young people formed part of the judging panel, alongside staff from Wise Group, the Talent Match North East programme lead, and Carol Botten, VONNE. The young people are sworn to secrecy ahead of next Thursday’s event where the winners will be announced.
The Talent Match Leaders and young people engaged with partners from across the North East also participated in the development of a video launching the awards event. The video captures what Talent Match means to those accessing and supporting the programme.
Talent Match is a Big Lottery Fund initiative aimed at developing innovative new solutions to help young people aged 18-24 furthest from the labour market.
