This ESF and Skills Funding Agency contract aims to engage and progress 16, 17 and 18 year olds (15 years old if they have left school officially and are not yet 16, and up to 25 years where LLDD applies) who are

  • not currently undertaking an education or training option
  • in education, employment or training (EET) on the day of their start but are at risk of ‘dropping out’ or being made redundant (especially those that have left jobs without training) and consequently rejoining the NEET register.

It aims to do these through the delivery of individualised learning, stemming from the identification of the young person’s most likely route back into education, or training, and uses specialist partners – subcontracted to Worcester College of Technology – to work with the clients. The partners are listed below, with links to their websites which give a flavour of what they can deliver.
