Liverpool City Council have recently published their draft Inspiring: Engaging: Progressing NEET Reduction strategy. The deadline for comments on the draft strategy is Wednesday 20th February.
To facilitate a sector wide consultation response, an extraordinary meeting of the Liverpool Provider Network will take place on Friday 15th February at 9.30am at GMLPF offices.
The meeting will provide an opportunity to go through the draft strategy, the consultation framework and to support the drafting of a local provider response.
A draft strategy to get more young people into learning and work
Last year in Liverpool over 1,000 young people aged 16-18 were not in education, employment or training (NEET). This is one of the highest rates in the country and this position hasn’t changed in a number of years.
To address this over the last few months the Council has invited a number of stakeholders together to help shape a strategy that will support an increase in young people moving into learning and work.
This work has resulted in a draft strategy document – Inspiring: Engaging: Progressing – it sets out a combined determination to work together across the Council and with partners across the City to improve the learning, skills and employment outcomes for young people in Liverpool.
To help further refine the document Liverpool City Council is inviting comments on this document from a wider range of organisations across the City who work with young people.
