Youth Jobs Index

The first of an annual series, the Youth Jobs Index shows that more than a million young people in this country are spending six months not working or learning. This has a knock-on effects for the rest of their lives, reducing their opportunities and earnings.

Impetus-PEF works to ensure all young people can succeed in education and employment, whatever their background. To achieve this, we need to better understand the current state of play for disadvantaged young people in the UK.

The government’s quarterly snapshot of young people not in education, employment or training (otherwise known as NEET) have been showing a steady decline since 2012.

Our research, delivered by The Learning and Work Institute for Impetus-PEF, using the same Labour Force Survey data as government figures, gives a fuller picture of both how long young people are out of education and employment for and how likely they are to get into a job having been NEET.
