Project Director: Peter Wells
Project Duration: 2013-2020
Talent Match is a Big Lottery Funding initiative of up to £100 million. It is investing resources in a number of areas in England where youth unemployment is a significant issue. BIG will invest for a period of up to five years to improve the lives of people aged 18-24 who have been out of education, employment or training for 12 months or more. The aims of the evaluation and learning contract are: to track the success of the programme and projects within it; to identify what works well, for whom and in what circumstances; and to share learning and improve practice.
More information can be found on the dedicated Talent Match Evaluation project website. The project team also includes Anne Green (University of Warwick) and Pete Tyler (University of Cambridge).
