Transform & Achieve was funded by J.P. Morgan in March 2018 to deliver 25 T&A programmes to East London residents in partnership with Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing.
We were also funded for a second time by J.P. Morgan to deliver online Transform & Achieve programmes in partnership with One Housing – this contract runs from January 21-September 22 delivering 12 online programmes.
Below is a summary of the data findings from the 2018 – 2020 UEl evaluation.
The Transform and Achieve programme is designed to support and empower participants to make changes in their lives by equipping them with strategies to shift mindset and negative habitual patterns and enhance their ability to shine in a competitive jobs market. The programme consists of classroom training designed to take a holistic approach to help those further away from the job market to secure work and increased health, wealth and mental wellbeing.

The goal has been to reach 460 people over the course of two years, and to support at least 50% of learners into employment within 3–6 months of completing the programme. The programme model encourages a higher level of self-development for participants attending, which in turn contributes towards sustainable personal improve mentand getting enough individuals into lasting employment. The background to the programme design is the recognition that when someone is out of work, it can be for a myriad of reasons, some of which are complex.
Therefore, any development initiative for enabling people to effectively move forward in terms of skills and increased feelings of capability within this context needs to be pragmatic in content and transformative in its methodology. As a result, this programme adopts a novel strengths-based approach to support learners to overcome their fears. The collective action behind the programme design has been highly effective in addressing the various social and health determinants forming a barrier to the participants’ engagement with employment and training initiatives and agencies.
The cognitive participation of learners has been highly effective, evidenced by the programme exceeding its targets, with 76% of learners either securing work (51%), into volunteering (10%) or training (15%). The reflexive monitoring of learners and delivery team offers rich examples of how the programme is structured and delivered differently from other employment training programmes.
