Popular travel group, National Express has offered up ?100,000 of funding for local community and youth groups in and around Birmingham and the West Midlands. The fund comes from the National Express Foundation, which was created last year in an effort to support and aid young people from deprived backgrounds. It is hoping to target those between 15 and 24 with a history of anti-social behaviour and community disturbance. The Foundation is keen to encourage this particular demographic through better resources made available to local community groups as well as significant financial support to universities for those students wishing to progress into further or higher education.
Almost 750 young people were directly supported last year by the National Express Foundation, including the Three Faiths Forum which was able to successfully promote the relationships between differing faith schools by creating strong ties and links between them to encourage young people to learn about different faiths, cultures and backgrounds.
Charities and youth groups in Birmingham and the West Midlands wishing to apply for grants must have sufficient evidence of promoting and offering ‘positive activities for young people in deprived backgrounds’.
The Foundation is allowing students and community groups to apply for between ?2,500 and ?5,000 of funding.

By mentioning the new Government Matched Funding Scheme for Higher Education in its Annual Fund communications to alumni, the University of Leeds has achieved record results for its appeal.
As a result, all Annual Fund communications explain the Matched Funding scheme and show donors exactly what this additional income could achieve across the five priority areas supported by the Fund. The Matched Funding Scheme for Higher Education aims to increase voluntary giving to higher education (HE) providers. The University’s most recent telephone appeal to its alumni, the first since the Matched Funding scheme was launched, has been one of its most successful ever. The University plans to run two further telephone appeals to alumni in its current financial year ending July 2009.
Further education leaders have called for a rethink on traineeships after new rules revealed lower-rated providers would be able to run the scheme, despite it having been designed for top-ranking providers.

Skills Minister Matthew Hancock announced the traineeships framework last month, including details of how only providers graded by Ofsted as outstanding or good (grade one or two, respectively) could run them. But according to Skills Funding Agency (SFA) rules published more recently, subcontractors deemed by Ofsted to be in need of improvement (grade three), or who have never been inspected, also will be able to run the scheme. The issue has reopened the debate around Ofsted grades being the only means of determining suitable providers. Grade three subcontractors can deliver traineeships as long as they were on the SFA’s subcontractors’ register at the start of this month.
Unregistered grade three subcontractors, or those registered after May, will not be able to run the scheme.
The 2011 Girls’ Attitudes Survey by the Girl Guides has reported that financial uncertainty is shaping girls’ and young women’s career and academic aspirations. The report noted that the girls felt strongly that the opportunity to go to university should be open to all (87%), and the recent increase in tuition fees to on average ?9000 for undergraduate courses was ‘unfair’ (82%). For many young women surveyed continuing their studies was increasingly seen as a big financial risk and a barrier for many, who were uncertain about the financial future and benefits of a university education.
The financial riskiness of continuing education in this era of austerity voiced by these young women, detracts from previous New Labour administration’s commitment to the widening participation agenda.
Rio Tinto Iron Ore and Australia chief executive Sam Walsh said "We believe we have the best quality iron ore expansion projects anywhere in the world.  They are high return, low risk investments that are highly value-adding for shareholders. The Nammuldi project will extend existing mining below the water table, increasing the mine's life by 14 years, at a production rate of approximately 16 million tonnes a year. The works and plans remain subject to a number of joint venture and regulatory approvals, including environmental clearances, which are expected later this year. Rio Tinto is a leading international mining group headquartered in the UK, combining Rio Tinto plc, a London and New York Stock Exchange listed company, and Rio Tinto Limited, which is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. The 2015 Erasmus + Call and Programme Guide The Erasmus+ Programme Guide for the 2015 General Call for Proposals was published in English on OCtober 6th, with further language versions to follow at the end of October.
The Programme Guide provides detailed conditions for participating in the call for proposals, as well as information on the priorities for funding.
The Erasmus+ programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work.
Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad, and it will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.
Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth; it will for the first time provide support for Sport. A survey of 5,000 prospective international students conducted by Hotcourses Inc in October 2010 revealed 55% would choose to study in the US as their first choice, followed by 50% indicating the UK as their second choice and in third place 36% would choose Australia, just above Canada at 34%.
There were some country of origin differences, with 93.4% of Chinese students indicating the US would be their first choice, compared to 86% of Indians, whereas 92% of Malaysians would prefer to go to the UK as their first choice and 83% of Indonesians preferred Singapore as their first choice of study abroad destination. When asked whether they had studied or lived abroad before, 80% of the students indicated they had not, leaving 20% who had.

When asked why they wanted to study abroad, 39% of students said to get a better education and a further 39% indicated they believed a foreign degree would lead to a better job in their home country. In selecting a country in which to study the top 3 factors indicated as being “very important” were the country’s education reputation, the cost of study and safety. Choosing a university or college to apply to, 71% said they were doing so to a school they had never previously heard of before embarking on their research with 98.2% saying their primary method of research was online via search engines. Despite the fact that the majority of schools do not have information in local (non English) languages on their websites, 79% of students said it was very important to have information in their native language, not least because 69% of these said their parents would require this information. Mike Elms, CEO of Hotcourses commented: “It is perhaps not surprising students take over 12 months to make this decision as most of them have not studied or lived abroad before and it is a very significant emotional as well as financial commitment.
Reach out to the author: contact and available social following information is listed in the top-right of all news releases. All higher education institutions (HEIs) and directly funded further education colleges (FECs) in England have been invited to participate in the scheme. Here’s a novel idea, how about you find some good examples of sub-contracting provision and report on these, instead of filling your pockets on the back of selling your Solicitors, your MI company and Tenon to lead providers! In the Education, Training, Skills and Careers section, young women were asked about their school experiences, their thoughts about their teachers and curriculum, and also career and education plans for the future.
Despite the young women’s concerns, the UK Minister for Universities, David Willetts’ has continually expressed his commitment to the ‘fairness’ and ‘affordability’ of the new student finance system from 2012. Major products are aluminium, copper, diamonds, thermal and metallurgical coal, uranium, gold, industrial minerals (borax, titanium dioxide and salt) and iron ore. In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.
As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education , Training , Youth , and Sport  sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules. Eligible gifts to participating institutions will be matched through a fund of ?200 million.
However, the Girl Guide’s survey notes that 16 and 17 years old young women are already seriously reconsidering their future education plans. Activities span the world and are strongly represented in Australia and North America with significant businesses in Asia, Europe, Africa and South America.
With the BBC also reporting that youth unemployment in the UK is currently at a record high, for 16 to 24-year-olds, and female unemployment at its highest for 23 years, these are bleak times for young people considering their future career and education prospects.
