Youth unem­ploy­ment, a case for a more local approach?

No comments

Many thanks to Trevor Dance who shared the following inform­a­tion with the group at our Monday Meetup at Matthews Yard (040213)

The figures below supports Collage’s belief that people are being trained for and hoping for non-existing jobs. We advocate that it would be sensible to also be more proactive and look at news ways of finding and creating work for yourself.


Youth unem­ploy­ment, a case for a more local approach?

According to the LGA’s research, there are currently 33 different national schemes, covering 13 different age bound­aries, costing £15bn a year.
More than 94,000 people completed hair and beauty courses last year, even though there were only 18,000 new jobs in the sector, it added.
By contrast, in con­struc­tion, around 123,000 people were trained for around 275,000 advert­ised jobs.
The LGA said this was partly caused by colleges being paid for every student who receives a qual­i­fic­a­tion, regard­less of the local need for those skills.”
