NE1 Can

NE1 Can is a programme managed by Business Improvement District company, Newcastle NE1 Ltd.

Ultimately, it is about raising the aspirations of young people and allowing local businesses to access talent through a range of structured business workshops, events and opportunities which provide work experience insights, access to careers support and advice and guidance.

One of the key goals is to equip young people with the transitional skills that will carry them from schools and college into the workplace by working closely with NE1’s business community.
