A jobs scheme is being launched in Tower Hamlets to help 16-24-year-olds find work.

As part of YoungWorkPath, a former bank in Watney Market is being transformed into a hub for the scheme.

It will offer walk-in enquiries and host training courses to help young people develop employment skills and find career advice.

Tower Hamlets mayor John Biggs said: “Our inspiring young people are one of our greatest assets and we are committed to doing everything we can to offer them the opportunities they need to succeed.

“Young WorkPath will be the first programme of its kind. By adopting a joined up approach to the work journey of young people, I am confident that we can make a real difference to the next generation in Tower Hamlets.”

Last month, Tower Hamlets’ deputy young mayor Sadia Ahmed address the Tower Hamlets Partnership Summit, saying that higher education and prestigious careers no longer felt like far-fetched concepts for young people in the borough.

In February, the council relaunched its Youth Service, with 18 youth hubs across the borough delivering free activities.
