What is an Activity Agreement?

An agreement between a young person and a worker, that the young person will take part in a programme of learning and activity that helps them get ready for formal learning or employment.

Activity Agreements help young people to progress into, and sustain, more formal learning or employment. The content of the agreement between the young person and the worker can be very varied – it is unique to that young person. There is usually a focus on employability. Where an Activity Agreement includes group work, this is often done as part of the LINC programmes.

An Education Maintenance Allowance of £30 per week is available for eligible young people on Activity Agreements. (Eligibility depends on household income and personal circumstances.)

Who are they for?

Activity Agreements are for young people aged between 16 and 19 (up to the 20th birthday) who are not in education, employment or training and who need support to overcome barriers to learning and employment.
