The young people fighting to save their careers

The young people fighting to save their careers




Crawley's location near Gatwick has สล็อตออนไลน์ traditionally meant there are job opportunities at the airport and in
the many businesses that support it.


But young people living there were dealt a huge blow last year when coronavirus struck.


"It's been a massive rollercoaster," says 24-year-old Ella Sparrow.


She is one of thousands of young people who had to claim benefits when they were made redundant due to the pandemic.


But as well as losing her job she couldn't complete her business administration apprenticeship.


"Without the experience in an office, I couldn't do the coursework," she says.


Like many young people Ella had her career plans upended by the pandemic.


But now with a new role and an opportunity to finish her training she's feeling more positive about her prospects.


"I'm seeing more jobs to apply for now things are opening up again," she says.


About one in seven young people in the UK is unemployed, according to Organisation for Economic Co-operation and
Development (OECD) figures.


Job vacancies in the UK are soaring in sectors such as technology and hospitality, data suggests.


However, competition remains fierce, and the level of vacancies remains below pre-pandemic levels.


Andrew Ayres from Rewards Training, which runs apprenticeship schemes, says he's concerned there could be more
pain to come in Crawley.


"With 1,400 jobs already gone at the airport - there are going to be more when the furlough scheme unwinds -
we've got to be particularly careful to protect young people in the community," he says.
