“What is your NEET?” Seminar

Seminar

21-25 October 2014 | Helsinki, Finland

Seminar will bring together 35 stakeholders from different sectors to discuss NEET issues and how to create better opportunities for this vulnerable group on their pathway to reintegration in society and the labour market.
Theme: Vulnerable young people in NEET situations (not in education, employment or training), Status Zero, the excluded, alienated, disenfranchised... Some young people are on the margins of society for different reasons. They are not in education, not in training and don’t have a job either. They have disappeared from the system e.g. school dropouts, unemployed that are thrown from the dole, homeless youngsters, who don’t find their way to services or help, people living in illegal situations, people alienated from society,... (So we are not talking about those who choose to do something else e.g. gap year, voluntary service, world travel). SALTO Inclusion would like to start a longer-term strategic approach to reach these disenfranchised young people who are excluded from the system and see how we can reconnect them to society and improve their opportunities in life. Aim & objectives: Come and discuss NEET issues with professionals from different sectors and how to create better opportunities for this vulnerable group on their pathway to reintegration in society and the labour market. 1) Gain a better understanding of NEET: terminology, concepts, causes, differences in Europe, research conclusions, challenges 2) Learn about interventions: learn from each other, visit local projects, get inspired, share ideas, present your work, holistic approaches 3) Resources to work on NEET issues: funding programmes (Erasmus+, European Social Fund,…), methodologies, tools,… Profile of participants: Anyone with experience working on the issue of vulnerable young people in NEET situations (either face-to-face workers as well as managers/decision makers). This can be: • Youth workers • Teachers, school support staff, alternative education staff, vocational programme staff,… • Social workers, representatives of social services • Researchers, academics with focus on NEET • Local authorities/policy makers responsible for social provision • Employers, apprenticeships programmes, employment agencies, job centres, job clubs, job coaches… Website: www.salto-youth.net/neetseminar/
