The European Social Fund Supports
PLACE 21 – The NASCENT Programme (2020 – 2023)
New Anglia Skills Convergence Enterprise Network for Training
NASCENT 2.1, NASCENT 2.2, and RYPE (the Rural Youth Pledge for Employment Project)
NASCENT is the latest project to come out of the PLACE 21 stable. The NASCENT project is all about bringing industry and education closer together. What students learn in the classroom needs to be supplemented by what they learn from people who have made the transition from learning to earning.
The word NASCENT suggests something emerging. It means “in the earliest stages of development”, according to the Cambridge English Dictionary. In this project NASCENT is also an acronym: it stands for New Anglia Skills Convergence Enterprise Network for Training. That’s quite a mouthful! But the words imply that this is something for the New Anglia region, and it involves a convergence of skills (from the classroom to the workplace); and it encompasses the idea of Enterprise and training.
- Following on from the original PLACE 21, we now have a NASCENT Broadcast channel.
- Between 2017 and 2019 we created a PLACE 21 legacy and here are some of the materials and videos which came out of that period.
