18 months in and Tempus Novo has had some fantastic results, placing 35 graduates in to sustainable employment. However it hasn’t all been good news with 40% not managing to hold down their jobs for one reason or another.
Our work now will involve an evaluation of those who failed and the reasons why, to see if we can improve our service.
We have a reoffending rate of only 14% ( against a national reoffending rate of 57% ) pretty impressive, but we are always striving to do better!
One thing we already know is that although we commit to working with 10% PPO’s (prolific and priority offenders) we have actually worked with 35% of these the most chaotic and by far the most difficult to change offenders, and by being more disciplined when taking referrals from the police should improve further our already impressive statistics.
