Youth Inclusion Programme (YIP)
The Youth Inclusion programme is an after school and holiday programme that works with a targeted core group of young people in a designated neighbourhood, identified through a multi-agency referral process. Young people are supported to help them build confidence, improve skills, make a positive contribution and challenge negative attitudes. The YIP model has been subject to extensive independent national research and evaluation by the Youth Justice Board and is proven to reduce youth crime and motivate engagement with education.
Transform (Intensive Family Support Service)
As part of the government’s Troubled Families agenda Transform works with the whole family specifically in cases where there are identified needs to reduce anti-social behaviour, improve school attendance and support in getting a job. The emphasis is on providing one worker to support one family through one plan, and then to draw in and coordinate the activities of others. Motiv8 is part of a consortium of four organisations delivering this work across Hampshire.
STEPsSteps offers schools and colleges a progressive, challenging outdoor-based Foundation Learning Programme of personal and social development and vocational training for learners working at Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2. It is targeted at those not engaging fully with mainstream education. It provides personalised one-to-one support for each learner and a challenging mix of indoor and outdoor teambuilding activities and project work. All learners are offered the opportunity to participate in the after school YIP programme. The Motiv8 team delivers Steps in school and off-site to groups of up to 12 learners, but group size is as appropriate to the needs of the individual and the school.
It is expected that each learner will achieve a National Open College Network (NOCN) Certificate entitled Skills Towards Enabling Progression (Step Up) Post 14 that has NVQ equivalence, and also complete national awards in first aid, canoeing, climbing and navigation.
NEET Reduction linked to commissioned activity, NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) Reduction is targeted at those aged 16-19 and up to 25 if they have learning difficulties or disabilities. The emphasis is to support young people in identifying a plan to engage with education, training, employment or volunteering opportunities.
NEET PreventionNEET Prevention can be with young people aged 14-16 or 16-19. For the younger cohort it is typically done in partnership with school and is to ensure sufficient engagement with education to enable progression to college or work. The older young people will typically be at college, in a training opportunity or have started work. However, for many young people it is identified that there is a risk of dropping out if not provided with additional support.
Motiv8 runs businesses with the primary objective of providing life chances through training and employing young people in a sustainable business. Motiv8’s first social enterprise, Bicycle Recycling, started in 2012 and now has three shops and a training academy, all of which has provided learning for future enterprises.
