To support better outcomes for care leavers, 40% of whom are not in education, employment or training compared to just 15% of their peers, NIACE has published a guide for further education colleges and other learning providers.
NIACE has worked with young people and employers to develop a new website 'What Employers Want'. The website covers practical topics for young people on how to complete application forms, prepare for job interviews and how to progress in careers.
