We can provide support to students who have been identified as ‘at risk’ of NEET, a Pre-NEET. This may be the case if a student has poor attendance or behaviour issues and stresses outside of school. The EET Group works closely with the students through a series of weekly sessions.
We take a two-prong approach to support our pre-NEET programme.
This consists of pre-designed classes and tailored support to help each young person progress through their current education programme into a successful pathway of education, employment, and training, allowing them to explore career pathway choices and gain knowledge of the steps needed to achieve their goals.
This will enable them to develop knowledge, skills, and employability characteristics, and to develop links with employers.
Our bold intervention programme seeks to engage and give practical tools to break destructive patterns, a safe space in which to be listened to, and an empowering boost to their self-esteem.
We offer a wide range of programmes for those who are not in education, employment, or training (NEET).
