Long-term unemployed and adult education
Get Hooked on Fishing Midlands has been one of the most successful projects of its type. While it started with a focus on young people ‘at risk’, it has developed a wide range of socially beneficial programmes and activities. GHOF Midlands has sponsored volunteers to attend the Academy to enhance the coaching team. In 2007 it introduced ‘Totally Hooked’ as an adult learning programme. The immediate outcome was to build confidence among long-term unemployed and re-engage them with a learning environment and hopefully some will provide added coaching support in the future.
