What is Youthquake?

What is Youthquake?

Youthquake is all about giving young people first-hand experience of planning and running a business! By offering talented young people across the Liverpool City Region the chance to come together, explore local issues and come up with business ideas to tackle these issues. Youthquake is not just a training programme, it is a unique platform allowing learners first-hand access to key business leaders across the region and have their voice heard!

Youthquake is an 18-week FREE traineeship delivered by The Learning Foundry in partnership with The Good Business Festival, the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and the Regenda Group.

The programme will take place in a state of the art campus in the heart of Liverpool City Centre and will provide young people aged 16-24 living in Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens, Halton or Wirral with the support, skills and confidence to unleash their inner entrepreneur.

What will I Learn - Youthquake?

What Will I Learn?

Youthquake is all about making a difference, not just in your local area but in your future career too. By the end of the programme you will have gained the key skills and confidence you need to help you progress onto employment or further education. 

As part of the programme you’ll hear inspirational talks from local business and community experts – our latest Youthquake learners heard from Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram, Garth O. Dallas from the Good Business Festival, Simone Roche from Northern Power Women and more. You’ll be challenged to come up ideas to solve a problem in your local area and at the end of the programme you’ll present your solutions to our panel of experts – Youthquake’s version of Dragon’s Den! But much friendlier!!
