Supporting Fifteen London

Transcript of Fifteen London - Apprentice Programme - why support Fifteen

  • HOW MUCH? It costs a lot to train each apprentice. But its worth it. Not only to the apprentices, not only to the hospitality industry but to society as a whole.

    In 2011 Fifteen released an independent Social Return on Investment (SROI) report. Its a way of quantifying, in monetary terms, the amount of social value that is generated by Fifteens Apprentice Programme, in an average year. The report found that:

    For every 1 invested in Fifteen, 9.50 of social value is generated. The majority of benefit comes from getting young people into work. Other benefits include:

    Improved social and financial skills Reduced risk of homelessness and offending

    Reduced intergenerational poverty and improved social mobility

    Improved diet and long-term health

    BUT it still costs 30,000 to train each apprentice...

  • ...and Heres HOW it all adds Up!

    minimum but still necessary.
