Youth Service (NEET)

A service for at risk 16 and 17 year old young people who are not engaged in education, employment or training.

How it works

Some 15 year olds may be eligible for NEET services where:

  • they have been granted an early leaving exemption from Ministry of Education or
  • they are at the end of the school term and:
    • will turn 16 in the holidays and
    • have no intention of re-enrolling in school at the start of the next term or year.

Youth Service providers will assist young people who agree to be part of the service to get into, or stay in, education, training, or work-based learning.
