Project MacKenzie is our fantastic scheme set up with Olympic silver medalist Kriss Akabusi, to help young people get into work.

It includes courses equipping 16-24 year olds with vital skills to prepare for work, while also gaining motivation, CV advice and interview tips.

The four-week programme will see participants who are not in education, employment or training recognise and utilise skills to find future training or work. There will also be opportunities to look at existing apprenticeship positions in a variety of sectors.
