ABOUT 100 IN 100

100 in 100 is a new skills initiative to help post-16 learners in the wake of COVID-19.

It is predicted that COVID-19 could directly leave an additional 600,000 people under the age of 25 without employment by the end of 2020, damaging the growth, productivity and economic prosperity of our region.

100 in 100 is designed to minimise the impact of COVID-19 on future learners by helping to support and develop Apprenticeship placements, securing 100 Apprenticeship Opportunities in 100 Days, July 1st - October 9th 2020.
