Ambition Energy

This involved those who were unemployed, made redundant, disabled, redundancy, lone parents and people from disadvantage backgrounds.

• Ambition Energy is the government’s flagship welfare-to-work programme, and was launched in June 2002. Its overall target was 4,500 jobs created over a three-year period and was very demanding. The programme brings together the National Employment panel, Jobcentre Plus, Employers, Energy & Utility Skills, colleges and the Learning and Skills Council through a coordinated approach.
