Young people who are NEET – not in education, employment or training – sometimes need help in finding their path in life.
In Gloucestershire the Youth Support Team offer specialist support to prepare young people who are 16+ for the world of work, and to help them find the jobs and training opportunities that are right for them.
How we can help
What we can offer includes:
Support with applications and CVs
Information & support about training, apprenticeships, education, volunteering and job opportunities
Help preparing for interviews
We also have specialist staff who can work with employers to match them with young people who are ready to start work.
Who we help
We work with NEET young people aged 16 – 18. Depending on need we will sometimes work with 19 year olds and young people with a special educational need or disability up to 25.
At Gloucestershire Youth Support Team our priority is the safety and well being of the young people we work with and the staff that work so hard to support them.
As the national lock down restrictions are lifting, we are now returning to more face to face delivery, including some group work and events. We will be continuing to deliver virtual contact. Please be assured that we are ensuring that precautions to keep people safe are maintained in all spaces.
We know these are uncertain times and some people are experiencing heightened concerns. If you are worried please speak to your contact within the YST or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
