Thanet 16 to 24-year-olds invited to jobs and training opportunities coffee morning

Jobs and training advice will be on offer

Young people aged 16 to 24 can find out more about further education, apprenticeships and job opportunities at a coffee morning in Ramsgate next week.

Training provider Links 2 Work is holding the event on Friday, November 30 from 10.30am to 12pm at the Argyle Centre (third floor) in York Street.

Statistics for October show that the 18-24 year old unemployment rate in Kent is 3.2%. They account for 21.3% of all unemployed people in the area, Thanet has the highest 18-24 year old unemployment rate in the South East at 7.8% – equating to 840 people.

Anyone interested in attending can email [email protected] for a formal invitation.


  1. Where will they work after the training? How many hours will they be promised? Oh,how will they get there? This is so bad for young people, not good. They think there is hope and then they will be expected to get to places far away for a 2 hour shift. You say training, but will they be trained or just left alone thrown in at the deep end?Once trained (if they are lucky enough to get that) then they will obviously be replaced by someone else ready to be trained. Never a job in it for them. It is an excuse for cheap labour (I saw one advertising for £2.50 an hour, Seriously!!!!) and long hours. Don’t build their hopes up, or waste their time anymore. We have become a Nation with children never leaving home because how the hell will they ever have permanent salaries coming in to be responsible for a mortgage.

    • Instead of leaving negative feedback why dont you come along Friday, see the quality of the courses we deliver, meet our great team of tutors, get some feedback from the learners and see what opportunities we have available
