Ambition Coventry provides a unique opportunity to draw together skills and expertise from 20 organisations across the city so that young people can benefit from them.

The project aims to significantly reduce youth unemployment in the City, which in 2014 was 24.5% of 16-24 year olds. It will support marginalised groups of young people, including: care leavers, lone parents, young people with convictions, ethnic minorities, young people with disabilities or health problems and those living in areas of high deprivation.

The young people involved will be supported to access:

  • Further Education
  • Employment Opportunities
  • Paid Placements
  • Employability Training
  • Sector based training
  • Vocational Qualifications
