    Abstract

    The paper presents a tentative analysis of the regional dimensions of the Shell Technology Enterprise Programme. Following a discussion regarding the operation of the programme it is argued that the programme is limited more by company applications than by student applications. Second, it would appear that there is some support for the contention that students are attracted more to this scheme in regions where graduates find it more problematic obtaining permanent employment quickly Finally, there is evidence that company applications are relatively higher in areas of high unemployment and where the firm birth rate is low.
