    OPT INTO aims to reduce the number of young people aged 14-18 in West Sussex who are NEET or at risk of becoming NEET by working with them to help them remain in their learning or work placements.

    The OPT INTO model is designed to be flexible so it meets the specific needs of any learner who is enrolled. The project offers an accredited qualification, 1:1 mentoring, and transition support (eg. from school to college etc).

    OPT INTO is payble. To find out more about the project and how you can make a referral please call us on 01903 823546.


  • Purchasing our services

    The majority of our programmes are funded externally. As long as young people meet the eligibility criteria and we have availability, they should be able to access our learning provision. For those young people who do not meet the funding criteria, it may still be possible for us to work with them, at a reasonable rate.
