The Education, Employment and Training (EET) Service provides statutory EET support for young people, access to information, activities and opportunities and promotes safer use of social media.

Key responsibilities

The EET Service has three key responsibilities.

First

Tracking all young people from the age of 16 years old to September after their 18th birthday.

The EET service provides learning and employment opportunities to the OXME website where it:

  • updates the range of positive activities young people aged 13+ can enjoy in their leisure time
  • promotes activities via Activities Oxfordshire
  • operates the WebChat service accessed through OXME.

Second

Casework for young people who are Not in Education, Employment nor Training (NEET) to support them into:

  • jobs
  • further education
  • apprenticeships
  • other training.

Referrals for casework can come from tracking, other internal services, external services and organisations. Young people and their parents/carers may also self-refer directly on the oxme.info website.

EET also delivers ‘Choices’ sessions for young people at the Children and Family Centres. These sessions allow them to search for employment and/or learning options, compile CVs and access casework where there is a need. This is provided through a team of EET caseworkers located within the children and family centres. This part of the service also supports:

  • schools and colleges to help identify students most at risk of becoming NEET
  • schools and colleges wider Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance (CEIAG) responsibilities.
