A message from Youth Employment UK CEO Laura-Jane Rawlings

“We all have a role to play in ensuring that young people have quality options for work, education and training available to them. We need to move faster to eradicate the inequalities in our education, training and employment systems. Young people will need more tailored support and guidance to help them navigate a difficult labour market.

It’s important we use this time to make all the systems around our young people work. We need to ensure that quality careers provision is available to young people in all settings, in all levels of education and beyond.

We must support employers to engage, recruit and support young people better. Starting your journey as a Youth Friendly employer is the first step employers can take to supporting a fairer, Youth Friendly UK.

Finally, systems that work for young people have to be designed with their input. Government, business, education and the employability sector must listen to what young people tell them. The Youth Voice Census provides organisations with an opportunity to listen, take action and make changes.”
