Essential Life Skills

The Essential Life Skills (ELS) programme was launched in Stoke-on-Trent during the Summer 2019 school term.  A sum of £2,078,835 was split on an approximate 50: 50 basis between grant allocations to every school and college (based on Pupil Premium numbers) plus some AP providers; and grants to 12 providers of ELS activities who were expected to work closely with schools.

Four of these 12 providers have since been awarded additional funding to deliver activities in the 2019/2020 academic year.
