£15 million for young people in North Wales, 26/07/11 [W]

A new initiative to help young people across North West Wales who are at risk of falling out of school or further education has been announced by First Minister Carwyn Jones today. It will target 11-16 year olds who are experiencing difficulties in education, and 16-19 year-olds with the aim of helping them to stay in education.

The Potensial initiative is backed with almost £9 million from the Convergence European Social Fund through the Welsh Government. The scheme is being led by Gwynedd Council in collaboration with Anglesey, Denbighshire and Conwy councils along with Coleg Menai, Coleg Llandrillo and Careers Wales.

The full story is available on the Welsh Government website.
