Aspire-igen helps to reduce number of NEETS in Bradford
19 March, 2018
A recent article published in Bradford Business Voice, produced by the Telegraph & Argos, has credited aspire-igen's Canteen and Cookery school with helping to reduce the number of NEETs in Bradford.
According to the article, youth unemployment has long been a significant problem in Bradford. However, in recent years, the number of young people who are not in education, employment or training (known as NEETS) has fallen in a marked way in the district.
Figures published last year revealed the number of NEETs to be lowest in West Yorkshire, with 3.5% of young people falling into that category - a decrease from 5.2% 12 months earlier.
That figure put Bradford 0.7% below the national average.
Much of that improvement has been put down to the relationship between the Council and education and training providers. One of these is aspire-igen which has recently launched a cookery school and cafe, with the involvement and backing of The Modland Hotel, designed to give 16-to19 year olds a real sense of working in a food serving environment.
