In partnership with Jobcentre Plus, Torbay Development Agency launched the Torbay Works Project which involves the tSpace and the T4T (Together 4 Torbay) pledge campaign.
TDA successfully launched the tSpace (Torbay Skills Platform for Advice on Careers and Employment) information website in June 2014. tSpace has been designed for young people in Torbay, providing information, support, knowledge and advice encouraging people to move closer to an enter into sustained employment.
The main purpose and overarching aim of tSpace is to support young people who are currently unemployed, those looking for work, those in work and those wanting to progress in work. The site contains a variety of information and support presented in an engaging eye-catching style on a range of key career areas and useful career tools. Giving the user choice allows them to explore their own opportunities and options while gaining advice and direction to enable them to reach their aspirations and goals.

Alongside the tSpace, TDA has launched Together 4 Torbay (T4T) pledge campaign. The campaign encourages local businesses to support young people in Torbay with their career choices by increasing the opportunities and experiences that are given to the younger generation.
Businesses can support the T4T campaign today by pledging opportunities; no pledge is too big or small; whether it’s providing a work experience placement in their work place to providing industry insight to a school year group. These pledges could make all the difference to a young person’s life, aspirations and future careers in Torbay and South Devon.
So far the T4T pledge campaign has seen over 80 pledged apprenticeship starts over the past 3 months. We would love to carry on the success and gain as many different pledges from a variety of businesses to increase the opportunities given to young people in the area.
