ESF Widening Participation Skills Partnership Project Objectives

Overall project targets: 1,806 participants undertaking an awareness raising activity, 603 participants gaining a level 3 or above or a unit of a level 3 and above qualification.

Priority groups: employed females, participants aged 54 and over, participants from ethnic minorities, participants with disabilities & single adult household with dependent children.

The focus of the project is working with employed or self-employed participants. By exception, a small proportion of participants can be unemployed or economically inactive, e.g. response to redundancy, higher level skills need. Participants should be without a relevant qualification at Level 4. There are no fixed prior attainment requirements. Activities must be delivered in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
