Abstract

"The Inquiry makes a broad range of recommendations that demonstrate the collective responsibility of government and employers in tackling youth unemployment. There is scope for government support to be more simplified, targeted and "visible" and to continue providing support for Apprenticeships, work experience and internships. But supply side measures are only part of the solution to youth unemployment. Success is contingent upon employers raising their demand for skills and opening up opportunities for young people. When we asked employers what it would take for them increase the number of young people they took on, the main response was an improvement in the general economic climate. But clearly government can only provide the framework for growth; the true engines are UK businesses." - Page 6.
