Youth engagement and progression
The framework is based around 6 component elements, proven to be effective at increasing youth engagement and progression. They aim to:
- identify young people most at risk of disengagement
- provide better brokerage and co-ordination of support
- provide stronger tracking and transition of young people through the system
- ensure provision meets the needs of young people
- strengthen employability skills and opportunities for employment
- provide greater accountability for better outcomes for young people.
Local authorities have been given key leadership roles in their local area. They need to work closely with Careers Wales, youth services, schools, providers and other partners to develop plans for the implementation of the Framework.
The plan brings together critical elements of NEET reduction together in one place with a clear 2 year timetable for implementation.
