Aim and Objectives

Priority Axis 1. Investment Priority: 1.4 Active Inclusion

  • To provide individuals from groups which face particular labour market disadvantage with additional support to promote equal opportunity so that they can compete effectively in the labour market.  These groups include:
  • people with learning difficulties and disabilities;
  • people with or recovering from mental health issues;
  • people without English and Maths, qualifications at Level 2;
  • people from black and ethnic minority backgrounds;
  • people returning to the labour market following parental or caring responsibilities; and
  • people with experience of the care system.

 

The specific aim of this priority axis is to support participants’ progression into the labour market, allowing them to achieve equality of opportunity.   Projects must deliver additional, innovative and more intensive provision that meets the needs of specific groups of people (e.g. those with disabilities, ethnic minorities, and experience of the care system) and local labour markets.

 

Examples of potential support include:

  • Basic skills and ESOL training
  • Support for those who need pre-traineeship and pre-work programme assistance, to prepare them for the next step
  • Support complementing other skills provision, such as crosscutting and 21st century skills, including team working, effective communication, problem solving, critical thinking and self-direction
  • Money management support and advice and financial literacy programmes in order to address deep seated debt issues which make moving from benefit into work more challenging
  • Volunteering and training opportunities (as a pathway back to work) for marginalised individuals / groups / communities.
  • local ‘Community Grant’ type activity to support small scale voluntary sector activity which can be crucial to reaching out to these groups;
  • first contact engagement activities (for example, arranging events in places that people feel comfortable to visit);
  • local networks and groups to support people to get a job or access learning (for example, Job Clubs or Learning Champion type activity) to provide people with a safe environment and peer support;
  • softer skills development (for example, assertiveness, anger management and motivation);
  • volunteering, which is recognised in general terms as a good way to re-engage those furthest from the labour market.
