This project, completed in conjunction with Commonside Community Development Trust, studied the current work readiness programs available to residents of the London borough of Merton who are 16 to 24 years old. These programs are intended to transition young people into employment after secondary school. After analyzing the responses compiled from local program directors, employers, and participants, we made recommendations to the Economic Wellbeing Group on ways to improve participation in and practices of Merton’s work readiness programs.
