Abstract

The research reported represents the initial findings of an ongoing research study to evaluate the outcome benefits of a work-integration social enterprise (WISE). A general self-efficacy (GSE) scale was employed to measure the performance of a UK based WISE delivering three different employability programmes to unemployed individuals. Statistical analysis of the initial data gathered revealed a statistically significant relationship between age, educational achievement and GSE. Results also revealed statistically significant changes in participant GSE levels. Qualitative research utilising semi-structured interviews is currently ongoing in order to explore these initial quantitative findings.
