Further information

1. What is the Evaluation of the Bridges into Work 2 Project?

 

The ultimate aim of this evaluation is to critically assess whether resources are used as effectively and efficiently as possible in delivering the objectives of Bridges into Work 2 itself, to capture learning from the operation that may be applied to future interventions for this target group and to assess the impact of the operation, namely the extent to which engages, supports and prepares the economically inactive, including those who are long-term unemployed, aged 25 and over, to acquire the appropriate skills to become job-ready and to gain sustainable employment.

 

2. What type of information is collected through the research?
