Future Jobs Fund was launched early in 2009 and is part of the Young Personís Guarantee, which guarantees all young people, who have been unemployed for 12 months, either a job, work-focussed training, or a place on a community task-force. The first bidding round for the Future Jobs Fund closed on 30 June 2009 and resulted in three strong bids from the region (in Bristol, Wiltshire and Cornwall) receiving financial support.
On 8 September 2009, the South West Regional Employment and Skills Partnership (RESP) Alliance met to explore the topic: The Young Personís Guarantee - Future Jobs Fund. The Alliance meeting resulted in a series of recommendations from participants that are summarised in Section 6 with selected priority recommendations highlighted in Section 2. These recommendations have been prioritised in discussions with the RESP and will be presented to a future meeting of the RESP Board for consideration.
