"youth contract pledge"
Derek French Head of Work Programmes Address Steel City House West Street Sheffield S1 2GQ Phone number 0114 294 3443 Email email@example.com Date 19 January 2012 Dear [insert name of employer] Pledging your support for the Youth Contract Building on existing youth employment and work experience programmes, and with the addition of wage subsidies, we believe the new Youth Contract has the best possible chance of making a real difference for young people. Leading up to the launch in April, Government Ministers and officials will be talking about the Youth Contract to a wide range of stakeholders including small and medium sized employers, voluntary sector organisations and Work Programme providers. Raising awareness of the key features – apprenticeships, work experience, and wage incentives – will help get the Youth Contract off to the best possible start. We welcome your support in this, and would really appreciate it if you would publicly pledge your support through www.dwp.gov.uk/youth-contract/. DWP will keep in touch with employers who sign up pledge their support to provide updates on the Youth Contract in the coming weeks, and explain how to notify us of current Work Experience or Apprenticeship placements they are looking to fill. Thank you in advance. Yours sincerely Derek French
