A General Self-Efficacy (GSE) scale is used to measure the ‘outcome’ performance of a WISE that delivers three Employment Enhancement Programmes (EEPs) to unemployed individuals; namely unemployed young people aged 16-24 years (NEETs); unemployed university graduates and unemployed executives over the age of 40 years. The GSE scales were administered to the participants on each programme both before commencement on the programme (Time 1) and following completion of the programme (Time 2). Analysis of the data revealed that the programmes had a positive effect on participant GSE for the NEETs and graduates, but not for the unemployed executives
