Some ground breaking new research by Dr Anthony Mann of the Education and Employers Taskforce charity shows a significant link between young people’s experience of the world of work whilst at school and the chances of them becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training) as young adults.
The research ‘It’s who you meet: why employer contacts at school make a difference to the employment prospects of young adults’ by the charity, is based on a survey undertaken pro-bono by YouGov which asked young adults aged 19-24 about their current employment status and to reflect on their experiences of the world of work whist they were at school. The findings were striking:
26.1% of young people who could recall no contact with employers whilst at school went on to become NEET. This reduced significantly to 4.3% for those who had taken part in four or more activities involving employers. For more information and to view the full report visit:
