Livelihood programme

"Bloomberg is delighted to support the Magic Bus Connect programme. Building on our mutual commitment to innovation in education and employability, this dynamic partnership will enable Magic Bus to build the employability and livelihood skills of young people living in poverty." Jemma Read, Head of Philanthropy EMEA & Asia, Bloomberg


The Magic Bus Livelihood Programme enables young people to develop the necessary leadership, employability and life skills to develop themselves both professionally and personally. The programme is aimed at young people between the ages of 17-25 and is spread over three months, with a six month follow up.


The programme begins with market research to identify local needs and the likely career pathways in the locality. A database of service providers will be created, including vocational training, specialist skills providers and colleges. Individual needs assessments are then carried out for each young person on the programme providing them with information, advice and guidance and preparing a personal development plan. Once this is in place young people are provided with employability and life skills through vocational or specialist providers and employer focused career exposure opportunities and work experience. Once the skills delivery is complete, there will be expert job matching or educational placement in close partnership with employers, colleges and training providers to ensure successful placements. Tailored post-placement support for six months will ensure the impact is sustained.


Through the programme, young people will be enavled to live happy independent lives and achieve personal, social and economic well being.
