Post 16 EDUCATION PROGRAMMES

Moving on Programme (funding dependent / funding pending)

Young people between 16-25 who are not in  education, employment or training

This programme follows the underlying principles of the Building Foundations Programme and aims to provide a follow-on wrap around of continuing support and guidance in order to promote successful transition into meaningful training for employment for those young people who are still highly vulnerable to becoming long term NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training).

Experience shows that unless there is some longer term pastoral support post school, many will succumb to the common barriers which can prevent them making good progress.

The programme is delivered to a group size of 8 within a variety of diverse and stimulating environments. This is delivered over a 6 week period and supports:

  • CV Development
  • Skills Based CV writing
  • Job applications
  • Mock Interviews with industry representatives
  • Interview and assessment day preparation
  • Support in beginning new employment.
  • Funding yet to be awarded
