The Young Foundation approached NPC to be the evidence partner for its Education Incubator and Investment Fund, known as ‘The Young Academy’. The Academy provides specialist capacity development and risk capital to early-stage enterprises working to raise the attainment of disadvantaged young people.
Over the course of four years, we will be working with 60 ventures from London, Nottingham and the South East to help them develop their theory of change, capture relevant impact data and ultimately evaluate their impact.
So far, we have worked with around 40 organisations, some of whom are piloting their ideas, some with a more developed delivery model, and some who are scaling up. As the ventures are at different stages of development, we are working with each on a one-to-one basis, providing bespoke support, as well as developing some written materials.
