Présentation du cours

The COVID-19 crisis has reversed 15 years of progress in reducing youth NEET rates. In 2022, almost one in four (23.3 per cent) of all young people around the world were not in employment, education or training (NEET). The 289 million young people who were in this situation missed out on a crucial early stage of their personal development and risk facing severe disadvantages in the labour market in the future. Young women are more likely than men to be NEET globally, and in some sub-regions (Arab States, North Africa, South Asia) the gender gap is extreme. Addressing the challenges of youth NEETs requires a continuum of education, employment and labour market, and social policies and programmes that need to be coherently integrated in employment frameworks. This course, organized in collaboration with the ILO's Employment Policy Department, provides a platform for sharing of knowledge and experience of policy approaches and instruments for reducing the NEET rate. Join us on line to start innovating on the responses to the challenges of youth NEETs in your country.
