The Transistional Support Programme for Young People (TSPYP) has been designed to provide an individually tailored, labour market focused support and assessment service for young people who are, or are at risk of, forming part of the More Choices, More Chances group (i.e. young people who are not in employment, education or training).
The programme is designed to work with young people who face barriers to accessing further education or employment opportunities and assist them to develop their employability skills, with the ultimate aim of securing sustainable employment, education or training. Participants may include, but are not limited to:
- Looked after, accommodated or homeless young people
- Young people with special training needs due to learning or physical disability
- Young people with mild to moderate mental health issues
- Young people who have behavioural difficulties
- Young people who are currently within the criminal justice system
Young people will be assessed and have a programme developed for them to meet their specific needs. They will have an opportunity to get involved in a variety of activities to assist in their progression, including work tasters, work experience, group work, confidence building, generic employability skills training and specialist health interventions.
