Once Covid-19 began to recede and in 2022 we turned our attention to youth unemployment; making maps that show what areas need to be addressed in order to improve things for 16 to 24 year-olds who need jobs.
This is quite a complex issue — with statistics mixed up and affected by things like COVID-19 and high numbers of youth who are qualified but haven’t signed up. Maps are the perfect way to unpick all of this and create a resource for those who need it most.
Our maps are shown here are primarily designed to help young people find vocational education and training near them; making way for careers in areas that require workers with their specific skills and boosting the UK economy.
This will have a direct, positive impact on both the expected post-COVID downturn and the uncertainty surrounding Brexit.
