A Closer Look

Neet – not in work or education – On the rise in UK

More of England’s teenagers are leaving education without a job, government statistics show.

Annual figures show that last year 8.1% of 16 to 18-year-olds were not in education, employment or training (Neet).

That is up from 7.5% in 2010.

There was also a slight fall in in the proportion of teenagers in full-time education, which fell for the first time since 2001 – to 70.5%.

The government wants all young people up to the age of 18 to be participating in either education or training by 2015.

Neet figures are issued quarterly but these latest ones give an overview and compare what happened in 2010 with 2011.

They show there were 154,710 16 to 18-year-olds who were Neet last year, up from 146,430.

  3. I do hope that the government find some sort of solution to this problem. It’s good to see that it’s going down a bit.

    It’s very difficult to understand the unemployment rates in adults though. 3 year ago i started working for myself on a part time basis. Two years passed before my full time employment came under threat of redundancy. I took the plunge and became self employed on a full time basis. I’ve never looked back since and i do feel more people with an ambition to succeed should start working for themselves. Maybe this would open up a few jobs for the youngsters.
