Rinova Consortium

< Return to Partnerships

RC iconThe Rinova Consortium is a unique pan-London network of training and emloyment providers, working together to create new skills and job opportunities for young people. We do this through creative and imaginative provision in the arts, creative industries, sport, health and well-being, leisure, tourism, hospitality and education to engage and inspire young people.

We have extensive reach within these growing job sectors, through the work that we do with our consortium partners and their employers, providing access to young people 'NEET' (not in employment, education or training) to traineeships, apprenticeships, business start-up, local and international skills training and job opportunities.

Just some examples of our success in working together as a Consortium and in partnership with our wider networks include:

  • The successful aspire2.be pan-London pre-apprenticeship programme, with ten partners delivering support to over 800 young people NEET, led by Collage Arts and sponsored by the Skills Funding Agency 
  • Working with the London Borough of Wandsworth and a partnership network across South West London to implement Transition for young unemployed people aged 16-19
  • Launching Talent Match in London, led by London Youth through two partnerships - in North London with Collage Arts and across London with the Princes Trust
  • Skills Support for the Unemployed - a major programme of support to unemployed people across East London, including young adults aged 18-25, involving 14 partners and led by 15billion
  • New pilot Apprenticeship initiatives for those aged 16-18 and 19+ with Skills Funding Agency Providers
