East of England based TCHC has helped more young people get into work, education or training than any other similar organisation in the country.

Government figures show that over 4,000 16 to 17 year olds in the East of England were supported by the workforce development provider through the Youth Contract scheme from September 2012 to the same month this year. This is more than any other region in the country.

Young Ely residents have just completed the My Future programme which has been designed to support young people not in work, education or training. The programme, which is funded by the Skills Funding Agency and European Social Fund, is run by TCHC. It consists of 12 days of workshops over six weeks with exciting activities to develop the individual in a relaxed environment

TCHC is launching a new service with King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Borough Council to help people become self-employed or start a new business.

The service will help anyone with a business idea make it a reality. It is specifically targeted at budding entrepreneurs from West Norfolk, and includes informative workshops covering all the points that you will need to consider when deciding to become self-employed or setting up your own business, as well as providing the opportunity to discuss your ideas and questions with an experienced business adviser.
