John on the One Show

John Cridland returned to his roots for the BBC’s flagship evening programme, The One Show. He travelled home to Lincolnshire where he had the opportunity to meet a group of young people who were currently out of work, education or training.

At the Lincoln YMCA he discussed with the group the barriers they were facing in finding a pathway into the workplace and their frustrations in their attempts to persuade local employers of their potential.

John gave advice on how they could bolster their CVs and impress local employers, as well as talking to them about the prospects of getting an apprenticeship as a first step on the career ladder. He went onto point out where he wants Government and businesses to do much better in connecting with young people to set them on the path to a successful career.
