Watch the Personnel Today webinar talking about youth unemployment crisis and the role of training in employment

The youth unemployment crisis – is training and development part of the problem or the answer?

Hundreds of thousands of young people are currently taking their exams. For many these will be the springboard for the rest of their lives. For others they could be the start of a long hard road to try to get into work and create a viable future for themselves. Employers continually report school isn’t preparing young people for the world of work and this is why the UK has a continuing problem of high levels of youth unemployment. But is that the only reason?

In this live debate, in partnership with learndirect, we’ll discuss this issue and consider the impact of youth unemployment on the long-term growth and competitiveness of the British economy. We’ll discuss some of the possible reasons behind the high levels of youth unemployment in the UK and explore what can be done about it. Critically we’ll examine what part employers and the wider training agenda can play in providing long term solutions – or are we part of the problem?
