Programme: Development & Impact / What Works Funding: £191,300 Location: Greater London
15billionep is a charity committed to ‘transforming young futures’ through promoting social mobility and raising aspirations among young people. They work closely with employers, local authorities, European agencies and education institutes to understand the labour market and prepare young people for today’s workplace, boosting their job prospects and the calibre of candidates available to potential employers.
Using their grant funding, 15billionebp will provide a range of support to 90 young people at local secondary schools to reduce the number of school exclusions. Each school within the London Borough of Newham will identify a cohort of young people using the Risk of NEET Indicator (RONI) system and school knowledge of the individuals. The project will be delivered to young people from BAME/socio-economically disadvantaged communities who will be enrolled on the project for two years.
