What a Council Activity Agreement means...

'We were due to leave school and were not sure what we wanted to do. Each of us had a lead professional - for example, a career coach, youth worker or scoial worker who helped us to set up our Activity Agreement with a Learning Plan.

From age 16 we were all entitled to apply for Educational Maintainance Allowance (EMA). If you are eligible, the amount is usually £30 per week.

The benefits of being on an Activity Agreement include having support in our work experience placements and time to think more about what we might like to do with our futures.

So while we are learning and gaining lots of experience, we are having a taste of working life as we prepare ourselves for moving on.'
