Supporting Post-16 Transition

It is important that schools ensure that all learners transition into a positive destination after Year 11. Those who are at-risk of becoming NEET present the biggest challenge and Kent County Council (through The Education People) are committed to helping schools fulfil their responsibility.

Your local Engagement Officers can support you in the following ways:

  • Identifying learners who are at risk of becoming NEET.
  • Recording and managing this information.
  • Supporting you with how to plan your Year 11 transition work.
  • Advise on key dates and meetings for your diary that can support your Year 11 transition work.
  • Signposting to resources you can access to support these learners to prevent them becoming NEET. 
  • Engage in local networks of education providers.


There are resources available for you to use with your learners. 

In School Delivery

Every school receives four hours of free delivery from their Engagement Officer, we have a menu of activities and this can include but is not limited to: 

  • Apprenticeship sessions.
  • Post-16 options sessions.
  • Using KentChoices sessions.
  • At-risk of NEET one to ones.
