Our Youth Commission is looking at how to improve education and employment opportunities for 16-24 year olds.

New Report

Tomorrow’s World: future of the labour market

This report looks into the likely future changes in demographics and labour market opportunities for young people, the impacts of these changes, and how support and advice services can adapt to them.

Longer working lives and changes to the economy mean young people need to be flexible and adaptable to succeed in the future labour market. The skills and social security systems must reflect this ‘new normal’, supporting young people to upskill and retrain throughout their careers.

What will the Commission do?

Running for one year from July 2018, the Commission will look at:

  • Current education and employment outcomes for young people and how these vary by area and demographic group
  • The impact of future changes to the jobs market resulting from automation and global economic change
  • Whether current policy plans, including apprenticeships, T Levels and the Youth Obligation, match up to need
  • Examples of best practice from the UK and other countries
  • Developing a vision for better support for young people, and concrete proposals for delivering this

How can I get involved?

We want to hear from you if you’ve got an interesting example of good practice supporting young people through education and employment, or if you’ve got new ideas for change.

There are also still opportunities to support the work of the Commission, including through sponsoring an event or extra piece of research.
