A UNIVERSITY has teamed up with two councils in a bid to help young people get into employment.

Tendring Council and Essex County Council have joined up with Anglia Ruskin University as part of a three year bid to improve standards within schools and help encourage young people to attend university.

Anglia Ruskin hopes to help develop skills which appeal to the district’s businesses and make young people more employable as part of a Memorandum of Understanding between the three bodies.
