Progress is a project delivered across Coventry and Warwickshire coaching and supporting NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) young people to break down their personal barriers and gain access to training or employment opportunities.

Progress is targeted at those who are the furthest away from getting work, training or back into education. The programme provides up to 12 months of personalised, one-to-one support to young people who are most in need of a helping hand to get them on the path to a successful future.

Young people will work with a dedicated Progress Coach – an experienced youth work professional – who will encourage them to set positive goals, inspire a positive work attitude and help them navigate their own personal plan towards employment.

Through tailored, one-to-one support, the programme aims to increase the confidence, self-esteem and wellbeing of those enrolled, boosting social and personal skills as well as employability.

Progress is a part of ‘Building Better Opportunities’ – a programme funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund to tackle poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in England.
