Skills for Employment helped more than 4,500 students

Skills for employment logo-01Evaluation reports  submitted  by schools and colleges show more than 4500 students benefitted from the 26  grants of up to £3,000 that were awarded in February 2015. With £81,808 total funding, the approximate unit cost of helping each student was about £18. Among benefitting students, there were over 100 identified as at risk of becoming NEET, over 300 had secured week long work experience placements and 8 that commenced apprenticeships. A further 36 grants were awarded in October so we look forward to hearing the impact achieved with this funding worth more than £104,000.
