Access Training (S W) Ltd "Ambitions" Offer
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

This Ambitions project supports unemployed or inactive 15-24-year-olds in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to help them progress into education, employment or training.  This project works with a group of specially selected providers, colleges and other organisations to ensure that young people are able to access support to assist them to re-engage with education or support them to enter employment.  This project has been designed to address the issues and challenges that young people face when trying to find employment or remain in an education setting.

Through participating in the project, ultimately, individuals can expect to be moved further towards the labour market or into a job. Activities that we would expect participants to participate in would include: achieving a relevant vocational qualification, taking up volunteering and work experience opportunities, receiving high quality advice and guidance surrounding areas including careers, debt, benefits, housing etc., 

Ambitions is fully funded by the European Social Fund
