Today, the SFA has launched a further round of procurement in London covering the Youth Talent and Careers Clusters strands of the ESF 2014-20 Youth Programme.

These programmes form part of the London Enterprise Panel’s (LEP) comprehensive package of ESF provision for young people, which has been designed working closely with the Young People’s Education and Skills (YPES) Board. The London ESF Youth Programme for 2014-20 reflects the ESIF Strategy’s themes of freedoms, flexibilities and funding incentives; and response to the objective of supporting interventions to move young people NEET aged 15-24 or at risk of NEET into sustainable employment, education or training (EET).

The ITTs for the two programme strands were published today by the SFA via the Bravo Solutions e tendering portal https://skillsfundingagency.bravosolution.co.uk.
