COVID-19 & Youth Employment – Webinar

Youth Employment UK’s CEO Laura-Jane Rawlings shares the expected impact of C-19 on youth employment. Learn what the sector and policy makers are doing and how society can play a part in stemming the fallout.

Date: Fri, 24 April 2020

Time: 09:30 – 10:30 BST

We now have a generation of young people that will not sit key exam markers. They’ll miss out on months of their education and face unprecedented challenges as they try to navigate the transition points in the journey from education to employment.


This webinar will cover:

  • The expected impacts on youth employment
  • The issues young people are facing right now
  • Initial findings from the newly formed C-19 Youth Employment Group, a collaborative group of leading researchers, youth employment experts, third sector organisations and policy makers.

Established to help tackle the youth unemployment crisis following the 2008 recession, Youth Employment UK is also well-positioned to share insight into what works and how its own work has become even more urgent.
