Investors in Young People is a good practice framework that supports organisations looking to recruit, retain and develop young people and offers recognition for those that are already doing this. It focuses on three key elements of Youth Employment:
Attraction and Recruitment
Support and Development
Organisations are measured against a three-stage scale progressing from the first stage where principles and practices are in place, through to where the management of young people is fully integrated with other business practices.
Accreditation can be gained at Standard, Silver or Gold levels measured against the stages in the framework.
