The Talent Pools and Pathways project provides coordinated employer-led support to match job seekers to employers’ vacancies. The project is led by Newcastle City Council and primarily supports Newcastle residents through interventions such as career advice, ESOL support, life, basic and vocational skills development, volunteering and work placement opportunities.

The project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund with the North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) as the lead authority.
