| Evaluation

Our first investment fund was launched in December 2015 with a focus on increasing the number of encounters for young people with employers while in education. Funding was targeted at successful, proven programmes that were able to meet clear needs and address gaps in existing provision. We invested a total of £5.6m across 35 projects. The main objective of programme providers was to deliver employer encounters and improve young people’s preparedness for work.
