Six months after graduating from the programme, 86% of our young people were EET (in Education, Employment or Training). This figure is an improvement on the 83% we recorded three months after they graduated.

The results indicate that we have been successful in closing the gap for this group of young people and helped to ensure that their outcomes are more reflective of the national averages for all young people.

We think this is particularly impressive because we know 74% of them grew up in the 20% most deprived communities in England as measured by the Income Deprivation Affecting Children Index.

We’re also pleased to see that our young people are moving into high-quality opportunities. Over 70% of young people who moved into education progressed on to level 3 & 4 qualifications and 96% of young people who are working are in permanent employment, with 85% paid at or above Real Living Wage.

This data was collected just before Covid-19 began to affect the labour market and we will be holding further follow-ups in the coming months to establish how the situation is impacting on these young people.
