3 Delivering Priority 1.2 in London… Two halves to the programme: –London Development Agency year olds who are NEET –Skills Funding Agency year olds who are at risk of becoming NEET London Regional Planning Group (RPG) –oversees the development and approval of all specifications for invitations to tender under Priority 1.2 Priority 1.2 will be delivered via Integrated Commissioning –Value for money; with activity primarily split by target group –Close joint working; including alignment wherever possible 1.2 Youth Employment

4 The problem that the LDA is trying to tackle… Rate of young people aged not in education, employment or training (NEET) is 5.9% Equates to approximately 16,300 young Londoners High social cost to London, and high economic cost to the public purse Impact of the recession is hitting: youth unemployment is rising Increase in graduates struggling to find work: impacting on those younger, without degrees Fewer university places available: but 19% rise in applications End of Future Jobs Fund: finding work is much harder now High churn factor: many of young people find themselves cycling in and out of the NEET cohort 1.2 Youth Employment

5 The London NEET population has complex needs… Not a homogenous group: – Open to learning (41%): more likely to be qualified at Level 2, more positive experiences of school, more optimistic view of the future – Undecided NEET(21%): attained Level 1, do not face any significant barriers but are very dissatisfied with the options available to them – Sustained NEET (38%) : had negative experiences at school, left with few or no qualifications A number of significant target groups within the overall NEET cohort: – Teenage parents – Looked after Children – Young people with learning difficulties and disabilities –Young offenders (the precise details of delivery to this group will be discussed closely with NOMS) –Homeless young people –BAME participants –Female participants 1.2 Youth Employment

6 The LDAs outputs and outcomes for young people Outcome-based funded programme: payment will be associated with the delivery of results Young people taking part in engagement activities: Entry to education, employment or training: Sustained education, employment or training for 6 months: Sustained employment for 52 weeks: the number of young people entering into, and remaining in, employment for a period of 52 out of 64 weeks Sustained engagement for 52 weeks: the number of young people sustaining education or training, or a combination of these with employment, for 52 out of 64 weeks as a result of a LDA intervention

7 The LDAs four projects: Training to Work Employer-led bespoke training Tailored wrap-around support Employment outcomes Focus on Londons growth sectors Opportunities for Vulnerable NEETs Prioritising the needs of two key groups Looked After Children Teenage Parents Education, employment or training outcomes Volunteering into EET Using volunteering as mechanism to re-engage NEETs Increase skills, raise aspirations, improve employability Education, employment or training outcomes Pan London NEET Aim to reduce the churn in young people cycling in and out of NEET group Inviting providers to deliver innovative and tailored projects Split on a geographical basis to take into account varying numbers of NEETs

RPG and YPLA will use ESF to address the needs of young people who are in danger of dropping out of learning or moving into unemployment, the proposed activities will offer a combination of support and new experiences The activities under development are focused on supporting young people to enable them to build the self-esteem, skills and aspiration they need to progress into education, training or employment – and then supporting them to stay there and be successful

11 Priority 1.2: what will we purchase? Person centred plan Engage Support continues 3 terms or 39 weeks Wrap-around programme Range of wrap- around options Mentoring and support Sustained EET Regional Planning Group ESF Youth Programme Identify barriers EBD, financial, family, social Basic skills

12 Priority 1.2: what will we purchase? Under the draft Plan, ESF may be used to support the following areas: Indicative RPG/YPLA areas of activity: Flexible learning with long-term support (for young people at risk of becoming NEET aged 14-15); Post-16 inclusion with long-term support linked to September and January Guarantee (for young people at risk of becoming NEET aged 16+); Higher education-based vocational enrichment programme for talented young people (for young people at risk of becoming NEET aged 14-18); Pan-London initiative to support information, advice and guidance to young people (for young people at risk of becoming NEET)

The RPG/YPLA & National Apprenticeship Service will seek provision that provides long term personalised support, enabling individuals to either: –Be retained in or progress to education or training for at least two terms; or –Progress to an Apprenticeship or employment for at least six months. Pan-London coverage but targeting activity to those boroughs with the highest numbers of young people at risk of becoming NEET.
