What the YEP! programme offers

 

Yep! Is for Young People Aged 16 – 24 in Cornwall who are not in employment, education, or training (NEET), are at risk of becoming NEET, have SEN or are in other vulnerable groups.

The programme brings together the very best support available in Cornwall, to develop confidence, resilience, and competence in young people as they find their way in the world after secondary education.

This is a staged programme where each young person joins to access support that best suits their need according to their distance from the labour market.

This project is part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
