Where are the neets

Where are the NEETs?


Challenges and opportunities in sheffield

What do we know about those not participating?

There is a high degree of churn within the group, with some young people move rapidly between different activities at this age.

  • Just over one in six young people is NEET at some point in the two years following compulsory education, but only one in twenty-five for 12 months or more.

One significant element of churn is between Jobs Without Training and NEET. Of those young people who were in a Job Without Training at 16, 18% were NEET by the age of 19.

Why is post 16 participation important?

They are more likely to suffer from negative outcomeslater in life. By the age of 21, young people who have been NEET are more likely to face:

Unemployment / Under-employment

Lower income

Criminal record

NEET aged

16-18

Poor health and depression

Attainment at this age can yield significant benefits later in life. The employment rate for those with a Level 2 qualification is twice that of those without.
