WS1: Developing the Entrepreneurial self efficacy of NEET young people
The idea of NEET young people starting enterprises is an exciting prospect, however in reality only a minority of these young people possess the motivation, self confidence, skills, network and entrepreneurial spirit for a realistic chance of success? What do enterprise interventions need to look like to improve their chances, and how can enterprise be relevant for those young people with no desire to start a business?
A practical workshop for delegates to experience techniques for developing the entrepreneurial self efficacy of NEET young people, including:
Creating the right environment to enable personal growth
Developing a supportive team of peers
Developing fresh approaches to tackling personal barriers
Developing an enterprising mindset

WS4: Engaging the Disengaged – Understanding and Supporting NEET Students with Special Educational Needs including Syndromes and Conditions
Post-16 young people with Special Educational Needs are more than twice as likely not to be in education, employment or training (NEET) than those without, according to the Teather Report (2011).
Since 1990 there has been a doubling of young people in schools with Special Educational Needs (now 21% of school population) with one of the fastest growing categories being behaviour problems.
Often young people will be affected by multiple conditions which makes it extremely difficult for schools to successfully engage these students and manage their behaviour. As a result many students become disengaged and are lost to the education system.
This workshop will give clear practical strategies to help identify and manage the behaviour of students with syndromes and conditions and to help the student to be able to successfully participate in education and training.
Just some of the syndromes and conditions we will look at include:
- Asperger Syndrome
- Tourette’s Syndrome
- Conduct Disorder
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder
- Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome
WS5: NEET Today - Civil Unrest Tomorrow? Is there funding to help prevent this happening?
Youth unemployment is now at a record high, the NEET group are particularly affected by current social and economic circumstances, is there any funding to support work with this group and provide support for these young people.
The workshop will provide an opportunity to review sources of funding for NEET, ex-offender & young people at risk projects?
The workshop will include:
- Information on new government initiatives and policies
- Potential funding sources
- Review of current trends and developments
- Potential partnership and contracting opportunities
- Best practise in this area
- Case studies
- Further sources of help and support
- Other workshops from NTRL covering this area
We examine how local authorities, community projects, schools, youth services, probation services, social enterprises, registered charities and other non-profit making structures working with young people in this area can access funding from a range of diverse funding sources. These are detailed in slides, an information pack and other resources provided as part of the workshop, which will be fully interactive and involve group exercises and discussion.
This workshop does not require previous funding knowledge, but experience or an understanding of the NEET group is helpful.
