Solent Supporting Employment Fund: European Social Fund

Funding towards extended support for our post 16 training

The Solent Supporting Employment Programme has been set up to reach and work with individuals facing complex barriers to employment, enabling them to move closer towards or into employment.

OC's post 16 programme provides intensive support to young people aged 16-19 through vocational training, providing skills training and a route to further training, apprenticeships or employment. For YP with very complex needs, OC can provide a range of traineeship options tailored to the individual student. With the help of funding from the Solent Supporting Employment Fund, OC's post 16 students will be equipped with not only skills training, accredited qualifications or work experience, but also have gained valuable soft skills, including self-worth and team work.

This project is part-funded by the European Social Fund.
