Description

Description

This course provides a platform for the sharing of knowledge and experience of policy approaches and instruments for tackling the challenges of youth Not in Employment, Education or Training.

Target audience

Target audience

The course targets policy-makers and advisors from ministries of labour, education, youth and finance; officials of youth-led organizations; and representatives of workers' and employers' organizations.

Background

Background

The creation of more and better jobs for young people is a key policy concern worldwide. In fact, youth remain confronted with a multifaceted employment challenge which embraces unemployment, under-employment, and low job quality, as well as working poverty, job insecurity and long transitions to stable and satisfactory employment. According to the ILO’s World Economic and Social Outlook: Trends 2019 report, more than one in five young people globally were neither in employment nor in education or training (NEET) in 2018, with 30 per cent of young women and 13 per cent of young men classified in this category.

The share of young people in the youth population who are neither in employment nor in education or training (the “NEET rate”) has been given increasing importance by the international community given its potential to address a broad array of vulnerabilities among youth. Reducing youth NEET rates is one of the targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development under Goal 8 on “Promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all” (target 8.6 foresees a substantial reduction of youth NEET rates by 2020) and is also directly linked to SDG 4 on education and SDG 5 on gender equality.

The NEET rate is, however, an indicator which may be misunderstood and therefore misinterpreted, as it refers to a highly heterogeneous group including young people who are unemployed (without work and looking for work), unavailable to work due to illness, disability or family responsibilities, discouraged (available but not looking for work), or voluntarily inactive (waiting to re-enter employment, education or training, or inactive for some other reason). A correct understanding of the variety of circumstances underlying the NEET status is an essential precondition for the formulation of appropriate policy responses. In this respect, there is no one-size-fits-all solution and appropriate interventions will have to be tailored to the different sub-groups.

Jointly organized by Youth Employment Programme Unit and the International Training Centre of the ILO, this workshop will delve into notions, approaches, available policy instruments and examples of good practice, so as to inform future decision-making and operational efforts targeting young NEETs. 

Objectives
