The majority of partners in YIT consist of professional practitioners working directly with NEETs. As such, they are the most knowledgeable and experienced in actual NEET-work and have valuable insights about how policies are implemented and where gaps exist. Hence these partners have been producing policy briefing notes throughout their work with the outputs of YIT, and for that reason each brief refers directly to a specific output (IO) in YIT.
This catalogue of policy briefs is referred to in the policy recommendations “NEETs for change” (IO7).
Briefing notes are simply written policy advice prepared for local low level decision makers; they are more concise and less analytical than traditional policy papers. The policy briefs are produced to be ‘standalone’ notes, independent of each other, regardless of legislation and aimed for easy installment, direct and immediate local impact. We call it ‘plug and play policy’. The partners CPI, VMST and EUK, can easily continue producing briefs, continue proposing policy aimed at immediate implementation.
