Delivery & Impact Measurement
Case Study: Hounslow Building Futures Scheme (HBFS)
K10 successfully designed and delivered HBFS, a two-year programme which received £232,000 from the London Councils European Social Fund co-financing programme.
HBFS supported some of Hounslow’s most vulnerable and excluded residents into sustainable apprenticeships and employment in the construction industry through the innovative use of an Apprenticeship Training Agency, the delivery of a two-stage pre-employment and employment programme and through coordinating the efforts and expertise of a range of public, private and third sector stakeholders.
Extensive project monitoring was deployed throughout the delivery of HBFS, which included focused targets to ensure that the programme reached the most excluded residents in the most deprived wards, but also to serve as an effective management tool, to support K10 and partners to develop and implement effective pathways for each beneficiary.
K10 has successfully bid, secured and delivered a number of publicly funded regeneration initiatives that commit domestic or EU funding to deliver targeted social and economic outcomes.
Our success in this field is due to our ability to work effectively with the lead agency and local delivery partners, to plan and deliver a co-ordinated strategy that is bespoke to each local area.
In working with developers, contractors and public bodies, we deploy this expertise to identify and secure match funding and resources to support each individual into sustainable employment.
The example below shows the resources we successfully secured to deliver apprenticeships in the London Borough of Croydon.
