Our services for young people

C+K have been very successful in working to implement NEET strategies that have reduced the number of NEET young people in Calderdale and Kirklees to record numbers.

Increasing the number of young people in employment, education and training

We offer a range of services from a 'strategic NEET audit through to a complete NEET management service' all of which have been proven to decrease the number of young people not in employment, education or training. Our work in Calderdale and Kirklees - where we offer a comprehensive and integrated service - has helped rank the local authority 1st in Yorkshire and the Humber and in the top 20% nationally. This has been achieved by working closely with local authority staff and developing a unique partnership approach.

Understanding barriers

By Identifying at-risk individuals early and providing tailored support and guidance, our qualified and professionally trained careers advisers are able to understand issues, barriers and identify potential trends. Targeting support with this group of young people, leads to better decision making and increased chances of successful progression. This support includes providing personalised careers information, advice, help with writing CVs, apprenticeship and course applications and preparing for interviews.

Quite often, it is additional issues that make a young person at risk of becoming NEET. C+K works closely with specialist support agencies to provide support for a range of issues including substance misuse, mental health, sexual health, family relationships and housing.

By building trusted relationships with young people throughout their time in education and in the early years of adulthood, our dedicated, experienced frontline advisers are able to focus resources and provide personalised support to those that need it most.
