Key learning

Here are some of the key learning messages from Talent Match Middlesbrough (TMM).

Talent Match Middlesbrough Young People’s Panel

  • Having a voice and influencing Middlesbrough is the most important aspect of the panel.
  • Young people value bringing people together from similar situations in a none judgemental way.
  • Young people need information to be involved in making informed decisions and value being involved in consultation processes to influence matters that concern them.
  • Leading on commissioning has empowered the panel to influence young people’s services.  Work trials have been most useful.
  • Young people should be involved in recruiting as they are best placed to judge if a person can relate to them and the issues they face.
