MyGo is the UK’s first employment centre especially designed for young people, with an ambitious target to halve youth unemployment in the Greater Ipswich Area by 2017.
Based in Ipswich, the multi-use centre offers free training, career coaching, employment support, CV improvement and interview training among other services. It also works with local employers to connect young people to job openings.
The centre is the product of a unique collaboration between the private, public and charity sectors – specifically, training and welfare provider EOS Works; national employment charity Tomorrow’s People; the Greater Ipswich Youth Guarantee; New Anglia LEP; Jobcentre Plus; local councils; and local employers.
This year, MyGo will be launching satellite centres in Suffolk and use new tablet apps so that people who cannot get to Ipswich are able to use MyGo’s services.
