Progression From Low Pay

Progression From Low Pay

The Progression From Low Pay (PFLP) project supported employed individuals with low earnings who worked in sectors across the Leeds City Region and typically had a low skilled workforce.

As part of PFLP, WYCC supported programmes of training with up to a 40% cost contribution (funded by the European Social Fund) that facilitated progression through skills support in order to increase earning potential and increase social mobility.

Project Impact

  • Increased skill levels to encourage job progression
  • Greater earning potential for more low paid workers
  • Addressed the gender employment and wage gap
  • Increase in the number of people with technical and job-specific skills
  • Addressed barriers to training
  • Collaborated to create better jobs, tackle low pay and boost productivity through skills

This project is now in closure/evalutation.
