The term NEET is well-established on EU level and beyond as gives challenging youth issues a common term which increases the visibility and strengthens the position of youth related issues in European policy discussion. Reducing the NEET rate is a common goal of economic leaders, but as mentioned in various references, while the term has many benefits, it has also limitations.The group of young people defined as NEETs is extremely heterogeneous – some leave the status relatively soon, but some have no other short-term or long-term perspectives; for example the two most vulnerable subgroups are either unavailable or disengaged young persons.The partnership of the Erasmus+ project “Beyond NEET(D)s” focuses on supporting the most vulnerable subgroups of unavailable or disengaged persons who are not in employment, education, or training or even below this status as they are statistically not registered as NEETs through guidance on a personal and professional level by working together with labour market and VETprofessionals on the field of labour market and VET.
