Helping adults overcome barriers to employment, and helping people in employment to develop further skills are two key priorities for the South-East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP). As an area, it has one of the lower percentages of working age population with a Level 4 qualification and above and has a high percentage of workless households.
Designed to target specific communities with tailored programmes that address the skills of adults who are not currently in education, employment or training (NEET), these courses equip the students for the demands that local businesses may have. Through structured vocational qualifications, the students build their confidence and communication skills, as well as literacy and numeracy.
All of these courses include a practical element through community engagement and a community project.
