NEET young people are those aged 16-18 who are Not in Employment, Education or Training (up to 25 if they have an EHC plan or are Looked After). 

You can register for the EET Support Service online.

This can be a one-off discussion, ready for work sessions or course, or ongoing 1-1 work depending on the needs of each young person.

Outreach to NEET Young People

For young people who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET):

  • 16-18 year olds who are NEET are contacted every 30 days and offered support into learning or work. This may also include support on barriers facing young people trying to get into work or learning. Local authorities are required to promote the participation in education or training of all 16-18 year olds in their area under the Raising Participation Age Legislation
