Careers Wales can work with young people in a number of ways including careers interviews (either face-to-face or through video calls), group sessions (either in person or through webinars), e-mailing, texting, webchat or through our website. To help us make sure that we work with you in the most appropriate way, we have created this questionnaire which is called Keeping in touch.
The Start Something Good Challenge - NOW OPEN!
Big Ideas Wales is excited to launch the Start Something Good Social Enterprise Challenge 2021 for young people aged 11-18 living in Wales.
We bring this Challenge to you in partnership with the Wales Co-operative Centre, Social Business Wales, Social Enterprise Academy Wales, Simply Do and UnLtd. The challenge focus is on Social Enterprise – doing something good. We want to hear from young people if they can think of a SOLUTION to something that would have a POSITIVE impact on people around them / in their community. We hope the Challenge will help develop enterprising, creative, ethical and informed citizens. We know that young people have strong opinions about the world around them and there’s a growing movement across Wales who want to do something good – so please encourage participation! Young people can work on this challenge independently or in groups at home, school, college or in any other community group setting. It will provide opportunities for them to showcase their entrepreneurial talent and their understanding of the impact of a social enterprise.
There are two age categories: 11-16 (16 and under) and 16-18 (post 16). The regional winners in each category will have £100 to donate to their chosen local social enterprise or charity, as well as Big Ideas Wales hoodies. One winning idea (in the 16-18 age category) will receive up to £200 as well as mentoring support to help them develop their business idea – plus a hoodie from Big Ideas Wales.
Please feel free to share the attached digital poster on your social media platforms. We would appreciate if you could also circulate this information to as many of your networks and partners as possible. For details on how to enter, timeline, useful resources and much more, go to:
