NEET Prevention

Tackling NEET Toolkit

Connect your practical experience with a research informed framework for understanding the risks to NEEThood and how these risks interact with each other. Produced by the University of Bath in collaboration with SomersetWorks, this collection of resources are informed by recent research funded by the EU and include videos, intervention handbooks and case studies.

The resources and training materials have been produced for practitioners supporting young people who are NEET or at risk of becoming NEET. Organised into three modules, these workshops and resources:

  • deepen understanding of the factors leading to NEEThood
  • outline a range of effective intervention strategies
  • give guidance on evaluating intervention to tackle NEEThood

  • The SomersetWorks team liaises with schools and colleges to identify and support students from year 10-13 who are at risk of not making or sustaining a successful post-16 transition. You can refer a learner to SomersetWorks on this Referral Form.
