No More NEETs: A Plan For All Young People To Be Learning Or Earning
This report by IPPR sets out a strategy for radically increasing the proportion of young people who are learning or earning, by fixing the broken school-to-work transition system and establishing a distinct work, training and benefits track for those aged 18–24. This approach is underpinned by two new initiatives: a youth allowance, to keep young people out of the adult welfare system, and a youth guarantee, to ensure they stay in touch with the labour market. This report also sets out cost estimates for the new proposals and funding measures, including options to further limit or offset costs in the long term.
