education, training and employment

The high level of young people who are NEET – not in employment, education or training – is one of the most serious social problems facing the country. There are currently an estimated 979,000 16-24 year NEETs in England. This represents 16 per cent of this age group. 186,000 of these young people are aged 16-18. This snapshot analysis is the first paper produced as part of a research partnership between The Work Foundation and the Private Equity Foundation. It investigates the geography of NEETS, focusing on the 53 largest towns and cities in Great Britain.

This report is based on the outcome of extensive discussion over the summer 2011 with businesses, individuals, leading academics and third sector bodies following the publication of 'Mapping the route to growth'.

It aimed to establish the steps that could be taken to ensure barriers to employment are broken down.
