We will be working with 16-19-year-olds who are not in employment, education or training (NEET) and have already offended or been identified as at risk of offending.
We support young people to access appropriate education training or employment by providing mentoring, transport, assistance with daily routine, accompanying young people to the training environment, debriefing their experiences and encouraging sustainability. We will also provide mentoring and training relating to the achievement of basic skills that will enable work readiness and identify young people who are at risk of disengaging from education and training and addressing their sustainability.
Our team of intervention workers will provide a holistic and tailored personal support to NEET young people ranging from daily to more regular contact to nurture and guide them, giving them the direction they need to get into work and overcome any barriers to employment.
We will be offering one-to-one and group interventions to young people for up to a maximum of 12 hours per week by providing access to two 4 hour group work sessions per week focusing on key skills, numeracy and literacy functional skills where appropriate (NOCN), work preparation, CV building, personal profiling, budgeting, interview skills, travel training and how to research the current EET opportunities in the area. Young people will also have access to 4 hours a week one-to-one mentoring support which can include supported visits to EET transition destinations.
