New Report from the Young Women’s Trust: 'The Crisis of Young Women's Worklessness'

More than 90,000 more young women than men are out of education, employment and training. According to the latest figures, 418,000 women aged 18-24 compared with 325,000 men are considered NEET.

A new report by the Young Women’s Trust finds that the impact of being NEET for a woman is more significant and can last longer, with evidence showing that young women areNEET for longer than men – three years on average, versus two. The report highlights an inadequacy of advice, training and support young women receive, meaning they do not gain employment or result in highly competitive, poorly paid jobs in a limited range of occupations.
