I am currently NEET (Not in education employment or training) and left school with no GCSES, I've spent the last years playing video games constantly.
Needless to say when i received a call less than 1/2 months ago offering to help me out from the government (It was a private company who competed for a government contract to get young people out of being NEET) i was surprised.
I agreed to go through with it and i met a female mentor who went through my skills and lack of qualifications and even though i had no literal GCSES (i failed them by missing them through my truancy) i felt it was going well.
That was when i was dropped, she didn't respond to my calls nor emails. I couldn't understand why she would ignore me all of a sudden and eventually after much debilitating i contacted her place of work, they of course were confused and promised to pull my file up and investigate as to why i was dropped so suddenly.
Two weeks after that incident they responded, they were very short and very quick with it. While i had no qualifications and had no social group of friends they could not help me, there reasoning as they put it was this.
I was too kind... literally they were told to be expected to work with substance addicted teens and those who were extremely dim to put it blasé, i was pissed off to put it lightly.
They also told me that while i had no qualifications i held and conducted myself in a manner appropriate of working in qualified fields and felt i was a waste of there resources... Ok they said they felt there resources could be sourced better and then dropped me.
So my question to MMOchamp is this. What would you do? I've come to my senses after leaving the real world since the last 2 years of secondary school, i have no qualifications and no friends to assist me.
Those friends i used to have are moved on and wish nothing more with me, i wouldn't lie to you all and say im not feeling depressed about the situation because i am.
But its solely my fault, and i intend to fix my life.
So any and all advice you could give to me to repair the damage would be fantastic, even if it criticizes me.
I know i've fucked my life sideways at the age of 17, but i feel great remorse for this and i simply don't know what to do.
(P.S. my brother is well known to the police and cannot help me, my mother is an ex druggie who i hate for certain things shes done to me and my other family live in Belfast)
