NE1 Can

NE1 Can is all about youth employment over the long-term. We bring real-life employers and young people together so that the next generation are as equipped as possible.

NE1’s unique position allows it to support its 1400 employers across the City to engage with a growing number of schools across the region and youth providers.

NE1 Can supports members to engage with young people in a tailored and meaningful way to support their business needs from a talent and skills perspective.

We facilitate business-led workshops, hands on workplace experiences and a range of quality employer encounters. In addition to this we  are able to offer young people 1:1 information, advice and guidance.
