Differences in young people’s opportunities across local areas: What should more effective strategies at local level look like?


Over the course of this year, Impetus and the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) used newly available government data to investigate patterns of youth employment. We launched the Youth Jobs Gap series and established that disadvantaged young people are twice as likely to not be in education, employment or training as their better-off peers. But just knowing these gaps exist isn’t enough.


Join us at this event in January to help outline effective action on how to close this gap. We would like to discuss insights from our research with experts like you and develop relevant policy recommendations in a facilitated workshop.
