  • Support re-engagement activities to address the needs of target groups such as: young lone parents; looked-after children and care leavers; carers; ex-offenders; those involved in gangs; young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
  • Foster an aspirational and enterprising culture amongst young people supporting them to acquire skills (basic, intermediate and technical) needed by employers in Coast to Capital’s growth and high employing sectors or to help them into self-employment.
  • Increase participation in traineeships and apprenticeships.
  • Provide opportunities to link learning to work experience including volunteering.
  • Provide support and a range of soft skills to disadvantaged young people to overcome the barriers to engagement, such as lack of childcare, transport, confidence building, motivation and health issues.
