Volunteering Sport and Activities
The Awarding Authority are looking for tenderers with a proven track record of working with young people aged 11-24 who can offer a range of outcomes and accreditations that will assist the learners in their future personal and social development, reduce their vulnerability and who can demonstrate progression and improvement in their attendance at school or college, behaviour and attainment. They must be able to offer a wide range of interventions aimed at reducing a young person’s risk of becoming NEET.
The Awarding Authority intends to award the Framework at the beginning of January 2019 with a commencement date of 1st March 2019. The Awarding Authority reserves the right to change this timeframe at their discretion.

Supporting better engagement and progression for all young people and contributing to higher achievement rates.
To promote longer term employability of those young people.
Linking with a wider range of initiatives seeking to support this group of young people.
Working in an integrated way across existing local authority partnerships (e.g 14 to 19 Networks, EPC-led multiagency meetings) and cross-sectorally (Local Authority, Schools (including Special Schools), FE Colleges, Third Sector, Training Providers and Careers Wales).
Participants will be identified for activities by Schools. Vulnerability will be measured by Vulnerability Assessment Profiles which will draw on a range of data that the School will hold on each individual. Referrals will be managed by the School.
