D2N2 Careers Local Enterprise grants
The D2N2 Careers Local Enterprise Grants programme which provided grants for schools to trial innovative approaches to inspiring their young people to stay in education, training and employment, has now finished.
Careers Local has impacted over 4,000 participants and 131 educational institutions. It has brought over £1.3 million of funding into D2N2 schools, and delivered over 30,000 hours of employability provision. The programme also won an ADEPT (The Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning & Transport) Award in the category “Places that work for People", recognising improvements that make a difference to local young people’s quality of life.
Evaluations of the programme:
New provision to support young people who are already, or are at risk of becoming, NEET (not in education, employment or training) will be available soon and details will be available here or from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.
