Activity Agreements is a flexible, bespoke service for disengaged 16-19 year olds who are not yet ready to sustain full time training or employment.
The part time training is tailor-made to fit around the young person’s interests and address barriers to learning and progression. Training is in the form of bite sized taster sessions as diverse as music; bushcraft; motorcycles; climbing; aromatherapy and much more. Anyone can refer to this service; schools; families; social work SDS etc.
It is expected that young people should make steady progress with a combination of training and 1-1 support so that they are able to sustain their next steps, which could be employment; college; apprenticeship or a national training programme.
Young people are eligible to apply for Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA), which is £30 per week if they fit the criteria.
