GLA ESF Youth Programme 2011-13

Co-funded by the European Social Fund, the GLA's new Youth programme focus is the provision of skills, employment and training to support vulnerable young Londoners.

Helping young people to succeed in education and preparing them for work is key to the economic success of the capital. The Mayor has identified this as a priority in his Young Londoners - successful futures plan.

The GLA's ESF programme will give young people opportunities to improve their skills and increase their chances to access further education and long-term sustainable employment.

A market warming event to announce the projects to be delivered as part of the GLA's ESF Youth Programme was held on 21 February 2012. This was a very successful event with over 260 attendees from a variety of organisations across London. The presentation from the event is available to download below.

The GLA’s ESF Youth Programme Prospectus which contains the detailed Statement of Requirements for each youth project was published on 28 February 2012. Grant Agreements for 7 of the 8 project opportunities were awarded, and this funding round is closed.
