JGW+ Engagement

JGW+ Engagement allows vocationally unfocused learners to experience a range of opportunities, gain support to remove learning barriers, and build confidence.

The Engagement strand of JGW+ is for eligible young people aged 16-18 who are assessed (by JGW) to address a barrier (or barriers) to further learning or employment or need to confirm or contextualise an occupational focus before entering further learning or work.

The Engagement strand encompasses identifying and addressing a learning barrier (or barriers) that prevents the learner from immediately participating in vocational or other learning at levels 2 or 3 or progressing into employment. The use of employer work placements, community projects, voluntary work and centre based learning opportunities aim to confirm or contextualise an occupational focus.  These opportunities, provide learners with the breadth and flexibility of skills learners need to enable them to participate in the workforce and society before progressing, at the earliest opportunity, to either employment or further learning at a higher level.

The JGW+ Programme, led by the Welsh Government, is supported by the European Social Fund
