NEET Prevention: Keeping Students Engaged at Key Stage 4. Top Tips for Senior Leaders
National Foundation for Educational Research
Some young people naturally flourish in school; others struggle due to difficult life circumstances. There is also another group of young people who have no substantial issues or barriers but are still at risk of disengaging from learning. Through research, it is known that the majority of young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) could be prevented from becoming NEET if targeted with the right support early on. This top tips guide offers practical tips to schools in delivering support programmes for this group of students, particularly those aged 14-16. It has been compiled from research conducted by NFER on 10 different school-based programmes that are in place to support students aged 14-16 who are at risk of temporary disconnection from learning. Tips include: (1) Identify students at risk; (2) Set aims and objectives; (3) Tailor your approach; (4) Implement and deliver; (5) Support continued engagement; (6) Develop a monitoring system; and (7) Evaluate success and measure outcomes and impact. Useful resources for further study are provided.
