Discover ways of stopping young people leaving school and work It is estimated that over 200,000 young people in 2008 are NEET – Not in Education, Employment or Training. Why? And what can be done to reduce this wasted potential? This film hears from three young NEETs who left school at 16. They flitted between college courses, short term employment and seem to lack a real direction in life. Now, they are on a course to help them into employment or training. We also visit Quinton Kynaston School in north west London, where they have designed a programme to prevent Year 10 and 11 girls becoming disengaged and dropping out. Are early interventions models like this the key to reducing the scale of the NEET problem?
