Elevate will leave its current home in Reading Central Library to relocate to Curious Lounge but the hub will operate ‘virtually’ initially due to the current COVID-19 restrictions.
Young people aged 16-25 will have access to a wide range of services in the hub, including: advice on the academic and vocational opportunities available; first-hand experience of work places through the DWP Kick Start scheme; training sessions from local partners and employers; access to digital technology within the hub; resources to help with career planning; training on CV building, interview preparation and communication skills and drop-in support from health practitioners.
Young people can be referred to the service by their DWP Work Coach or Youth Employability Coach.
