APPG for Youth Employment – October Meeting

Yesterday the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Youth Employment, which YEUK is the Secretariat met. The meeting was well attended by both YEUK members, non-members and young people. The group is chaired by Michael Tomlinson MP.

During this parliament year the APPG has made the decision to focus on three topics. Each topic will have three meetings in parliament hearing from a range of specialist speakers and MP’s and run an inquiry. For the last meeting of the series the APPG will invite a Minister along to hear from the Group on the topic and to receive a range of recommendations that come from the inquiry.

The topics are:

  • Youth Employment Data
  • Education to Employment
  • Supporting young people furthest from the labour market

The October meetings was the first in the Youth Employment Data Series and Jatin Patel from Impetus PEF came to present their latest youth employment research: The Youth Jobs Index.

The Impetus Research which has used the ONS data highlights that nearly 1.3 16-24 year olds in the UK will find themselves not in education, employment or training (NEET) at some point. The research also looks at the potential of un20161019_131915deremployment including young people who feel over qualified for their jobs, who want more hours or a more permanent position.

You will be able to read the full minutes of the meeting and see the presentation given by Jatin on the APPG for Youth Employment website.

As part of this first series the APPG has launched an inquiry into Youth Employment Data and is inviting organisations to submit a response which may then be included in the recommendations given to the Minister for Employment.
