Investment in Young People

What is Investment in Young People (IiYP)?

IiYP is a National Award run by Investment in Young People Ltd, a social enterprise that recognises the important work that small to medium businesses carry out in assisting young people aged 5 to 25 gain employability skills and who assist them with the transition from education into the world of work. The Award is granted for a three year period.

There continues to be significant publicity surrounding the issue of young people effectively being prepared for the world of work when they leave education. Whilst many would agree that more can be done to improve this, there is considerable existing effort provided by local employers to help assist young people into employment which, by and large, is not fully recognised.

The IiYP Award has been established to recognise and celebrate the important work that your company has invested to help young people gain employability skills and prepare them for future employment.

IiYP is supported by a wide range of local delivery partners which include Chambers of Commerce and other Education Business Partner Organisations (EBPOs) from across the country.

The IiYP Award has been established to recognise and celebrate the important work that your company has invested to help young people gain employability skills, preparing them for future employment and providing career information that could assist them in making their career choice.
