In 2007/08 1,718 residents went through the programme and 1,265 found work.

Outstanding mark

A SCHOOL has been classed as 'outstanding' by the Government's inspectors.

Brent's Pupil Referral Unit, in Poplar Grove, Wembley, has been praised by Ofsted as being 'highly effective' and awarded the highest grade possible of 'outstanding' for its work.

The unit teaches 36 year 10 and 11 pupils who have been excluded from school.

Headteacher, Christine Justic said: "We are delighted.

"I'd like to thank all the staff and pupils whose hard work and dedication has made this amazing outcome possible."
