Youth Guarantee Scheme Employers


NEET Activation Scheme II

Are you a local employer looking for an extra helping hand, and are willing to provide a valuable work experience which can transform a young person’s professional life?

The NEET Activation Scheme II provides young people (16 - 25 year-olds) who are not in education, employment or training (NEETs) with personal/professional training, mentoring and constant support, thereby facilitating their transition from education to gainful employment, while consequently improving their employment prospects, quality of life and social integration.

The programme consists of two main phases: training and work exposure/further education.

In the first phase, every applicant receives approximately four weeks (80 hours) of basic training on soft skills; such as how to build a CV, how to prepare for an interview, motivational skills, and communication skills. During phase 2, a participant is offered one of two options:

  1. A work placement (maximum of 240 hours) with an employer based on the applicant’s skills and desires. This placement lasts approximately 12 weeks – 80 hours every 4 weeks.
  2. If the applicant desires to further their education level, they can choose a course from an accredited institution such as MCAST/ITS, and pursue a course there. In this case, we will also cover a maximum of 240 hours.

Each participant will be paid an allowance after both the training and the work exposure/further education phases based on their attendance rate.
