I see yesterday that Springboard stated they are delighted with a placement rate to jobs of 20% .
This is simply not good enough .
The State is investing millions in these education programmes and if they can only reach a target of 20% it is very clear that they are running programmes that are not relevant to industry .
Even Community Employment Schemes had a placement rate of 30% and this was working with long term employed .
This new Quango Springboard should be looked at as all they are involved in is churning people through useless programmes to try and reduce the live register.
