Bid to get more young people into work and training

MORE support is set to be offered to help young people in Liverpool and Wirral that are not in education or employment into work and training (NEET). Liverpool City Region has put in a bid for funding from the European Social Fund (ESF) to develop an enhanced careers information advice and guidance service. It will be aimed at young people aged 16 to 19, with particular emphasis on expanding services for 18 and 19 year olds where there is greater need.

Figures from October 2015 show that seven in every 100 16 to 18 year olds in Liverpool are NEET which is lower than it has been previously, but still remains the highest of the big 'core' Cities.

Assistant Mayor and Cabinet member for education, employment and skills, Councillor Nick Small, said:- "We've made progress in getting more young people into education, employment and training such as by encouraging apprenticeships on the city's school, house and hospital building programmes, but there is much more to do. What we want to do is identify and target those young people who need additional support and properly assessing them before coming up with the right help and guidance.  We want to particularly tackle those groups that find it harder to get into work, such as those with special educational needs or have been in the care system. Every young person deserves the opportunity to get their foot on the employment and training ladder and we are determined to do all we can to help them."

A report being considered by Liverpool City Council's Cabinet, on Friday, 5 February 2016, recommends starting the tender process ahead of the funding announcement so that, if the bid is successful, the contractor can be formally appointed and start work as soon as possible.
