)-- A One Day National Conference
Not in Education, Employment or Training
Thursday 22nd October 2015 – Central London
Chaired by Katherine Chapman, Assistant Director, UKCES
About the conference:
As the Government announce an end to the youth contract and a commitment to a new Youth Allowance, this conference offers the insight and practical guidance needed to create sustainable employment and training opportunities for NEETs.
With statistics published earlier this month revealing a rise in the number of 16-24 year old unemployed individuals, it is now crucial to evaluate strategies for supporting NEETs into employment.
Key topics covered include latest government proposals to lower youth unemployment, supporting young offenders into education or employment, establishing links with businesses and engaging those at risk through early intervention strategies.
