Institute of the Motor Industry: Development of a 14-16 automotive vocational programme to reduce the number of young people becoming ‘Not in Education, Employment or Training’ (NEET)


imiThis investment will lead to the development of a 14-16 automotive vocational programme to reduce the number of young people becoming Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET).

Return on Investment

  • The programme will upskill a minimum of 720 learners with a high-quality Level 2 vocational qualification set in the automotive retail sector, with increased English and maths capability.
  • The programme will also deliver a maximum of 17,960 days of high-quality work experience with local employers, enabling learners to experience the real-work environment and equipping them with the ability to make better-informed career decisions.
  • As the programme is designed to introduce automotive retail as a positive career choice we expect to see an uplift of 545 Apprentices that would not have been recruited. A further 318 are expected to go on to further education or in to non-Apprenticeship employment. In total this will deliver 860 fewer 16-year olds not engaged in education, employment and training.
  • The overall return on investment for this programme will see 860 individuals prevented from becoming NEET, delivering a lifetime saving for that group of £138,116,000.

UK Commission investment   £476,250
Employer/Other investment:  £91,000
Employer/Other in-kind investment: £363,000
