improved chances of employment
The Fifteen has been tracking what happens to all graduates of its apprentice programme since 2002. Recently staff collated and audited all of these to ensure that their statistics were reliable. The target graduation rate is 70 percent (since 2007 this has been exceeded). From a typical intake of eighteen, thirteen would eventually graduate, and it is on this figure that the majority of the outcomes has been based. However, some years prior to 2007 this has not been achieved. Over the entire period since 2002 an average of 58 percent has been achieved. Outcomes have also been modelled based on this lower graduation rate (see sensitivity analysis).

Evaluierung der Aktivität
Social Return on Investment (SROI) is an adjusted cost-benefit analysis that quantifies the value of social, environmental and economic outcomes that result from an intervention. An SROI analysis proceeds via five key steps: 1) Boundary setting to establish scope; 2) Engagement of stakeholders to understand the interventions? theory of change; 3) Data collection to evidence outcomes and impact; 4) Model development; 5) Reporting. Although imperfect, "Fifteen" does have an existing research base. For its annual report, and for previous evaluations, extensive qualitative research with apprentices has taken place. Whilst this was carried out for a different purpose, it provided a starting point for the stakeholder engagement phase of this project. This was accompanied by two workshops - one with staff and one with a project steering group - to identify stakeholders and begin to develop a theory of change.
