Councils to be rated on their numbers of NEET young people

27th July 2015

It was announced that local councils in England will be scored according to the number of their young people which become NEET (not in education, employment or training).

Although, according to the Department for Education, the NEET rate amongst 16-24 year olds it at its lowest for a decade (which is partly because young people must now be in education, employment or training until they are at least 18) there is still a long way to go to reduce the number of NEET young people.

The scores given to each council for how many NEET young people they have, how well they track young people who are not in education, and the percentage of young people offered a place in education, will be published annually.

For more information, the full report is available here.

Our mission

At Bridge Builders Mentoring, we believe that the gap between young men from poor socio-economic backgrounds and their full potential is never too large to overcome. Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme provides young men the opportunity to gain additional support and guidance from adult mentors from professional backgrounds, who are experienced in life and work. Together, they can define, explore and overcome the problems that are so often associated with a low economic background.

The Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme is a charity providing low cost services for young men. Any donations are greatly needed and appreciated. We rely on the support of our corporate sponsors and generous individuals to keep our work running and enable us to change the lives of young men throughout the UK.
