How to tackle youth unemployment

by on June 22, 2012

A report this week from the Work Foundation (available to download from the link from this page) analyses the state of youth (un)emploment in the UK.

It concludes that young people are experiencing increasing difficulties in getting started in the labour market.

Amongst its recommendations are:

  • the need for young people to be better supported in the transition from school-to-work
  • a more joined-up political response including a dedicated national Youth Employment Unit headed by a cross-departmental minister
  • the need to bring more young people into the support system including through the use of the third sector
  • measures to help young people in the system, such as pre-apprenticeships, guaranteed part-time jobs after 12 months and travel subsidies to address what can be a critical barrier for some in finding work.
