10 targets of what we want to achieve with the Adult Education Budget

  1. Residents furthest from the workplace progress into sustainable jobs
  2. Reduce social exclusion and inequality with a focus on the role of digital
  3. More residents access their statutory entitlements
  4. Tailored programmes supporting those furthest from the world of work
  5. Residents working longer acquire skills to get better jobs
  6. Our young people have higher levels of aspiration and attainment
  7. More residents go into employment, traineeships, apprenticeships and further learning
  8. Residents upskill and reskill so they enter and progress in employment
  9. Residents have access to good jobs with better pay
  10. Employers with vacancies have access to a skilled workforce

How we want to work with Providers

  • Strategic high trust relationships focused on what progression residents can make over a three year period – supported by Delivery Plans
  • Knitting together the wider skills and employment offer including traineeships, apprenticeships, employment programmes, wrap-around support and the skills for jobs response to the COVID 19 pandemic
  • Collaborative working – MCA and providers and provider to provider
  • ‘Place making’ – a strong sense of identity and accountability for delivering and making a difference ‘in a place’. Requires networking with other South Yorkshire providers, employers and partners including local authorities to ensure provision fits needs
  • Recognition that this is a transition year – we want to listen, learn and improve the skills offer available to residents
  • Transparent and open – flag issues early
