Moving On

In May 2016, £4 million of funding was secured by the Lancashire Employment and Skills Executive Partnership (LESEP) from the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to support young people in Lancashire in a project known as ‘Moving On.’

Developed for 15 to 18 year olds who are NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) or at risk of becoming NEET, and 15 to 24 year olds with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), the programme aims to improve young people’s education, employability and personal skills to aid progression to further learning, traineeships, apprenticeships or employment.

The project is being delivered by LESEP members together with a network of additional delivery partners – the Moving On Provider Network. Preston’s College is the lead accountable body.
