Youth Guarantee

The Youth Guarantee scheme (ESF.01.002 - Youth Guarantee 2.0) is an EU-funded project, developed for young people aged 15 to 25, and which consists of four education and employment related initiatives: the NEET Activation Scheme II, SEC Preventive Classes, MCAST Preventive Classes, and the ICT Summer Courses.

Based on preventive and assistive measures, each opportunity is designed to help young people continue their education, or increase their chances of finding satisfaction and success in the world of work.

MTRM serves as the service provider for training services within this scheme. 


The NEET Activation Scheme II provides young people (16 - 25 year-olds) who are not in education, employment or training (NEETs) with personal/professional training, mentoring and constant support, thereby facilitating their transition from education to gainful employment, while consequently improving their employment prospects, quality of life and social integration.

The program consists of two main phases: training and work exposure/further education.

In the first phase, every applicant receives approximately four weeks (80 hours) of training on soft skills modules and also industry based modules. (Visit our course list).

During phase 2, a participant is offered one of two options:

  1. A work placement (maximum of 240 hours) with an employer based on the applicant’s skills and desires. This placement lasts approximately 12 weeks – 80 hours every 4 weeks.

  2. If the applicant desires to further their education level, they can choose a course from an accredited institution such as MCAST/ITS, and pursue a course there. In this case, we will also cover a maximum of 240 hours.

Each participant will be paid an allowance after both the training and the work exposure/further education phases based on their attendance rate.
