Perspective, an industry leader in individual learning plan software applauds a Government initiative announced last week (Friday 20 July) which is worth £126 million and anticipated to help 55,000 NEETS (young people not in education, employment or training) into employment.
Part of Nick Clegg’s Youth Contract, unveiled back in February, this new scheme has enlisted the help of private companies, including 24 further education colleges, in an attempt to train and teach unemployed 16 and 17 year olds spanning the nation.
For every young person they help, the Government will pay charities and businesses up to £2,200 provided they meet the criteria for keeping the person in employment or education for a minimum of six months.
Paul Davis, managing director of Perspective, a respected company which has developed a student management system says: “This financial support from the Government comes at a welcome time as the UK continues to struggle with an uncertain and unstable economy, yet the skills’ gap in the nation continues to widen.
“Although, from what I can see in the education industry and within the private sector, there is real willing to help young people get the training and education they need and deserve, there is limited resource and budget to help dedicate both time and salary – until now.
“Initiatives such of these are of paramount importance to help rebuild our fragile economy. They also give young people the incentive and confidence they need to build successful future careers.”
Perspective is a leading provider of student and learning management software. Its Sunesis system is currently being implemented by a number of local authorities and businesses across the UK. For more information, please visit www.perspective-uk.com or call 0121 506 9540.
