The Rinova Consortium consists of a unique
network of employability and skills organisations working together
to create new opportunities for young people. We do this through
creative and imaginitive provision in the arts, creative
industries, sport, health, leisure, tourism and
hospitality to engage and inspire young people.
We have extensive reach with employers in
these growing job sectors, through our self employment, start up
and SME support programmes, our experience of the Future Jobs Fund,
our links to Sector Skills Councils, our Apprenticeships and our
NEET (not in employment, education or training)
