Young People Not in Education, Employment or
Training - NEET
2
How many young people are NEET in Wales?
From 1997 to 2005 the proportion of young
people NEET has fluctuated between 10 -12.
3
Gender and age of young people NEET
The chart shows that there are more young
men NEET than young women and that the number of
17 and 18 year olds NEET is higher than the
number of 16 year olds.
4

Behaviour, characteristics and circumstances of
young people NEET

32 of young people in the NEET cohort have no
qualifications in comparison with only 7 of the
non-NEET population.
5

NEET young people by activity status
7 out of 10 are actively seeking work while
nearly half of the inactive are sick or disabled
or have family/caring responsibilities.
6

Understanding the rate of NEET churn
Of those that were NEET in 2006, 51
remained NEET in 2007 and 49 moved onto
employment or full-time education. Of those that
remained NEET there is a fairly even split
between unemployment and inactivity.
7

Behaviour, characteristics and circumstances of
young people NEET
NEET young people are likely to have a
history of not attending school and to report
higher rates of truancy during Years 10 and 11
(15.4) than young people in general (3.3).
Young people NEET are over three times more
likely to have been excluded from school than
young people overall. Young people NEET are up
to eight times more likely to have a statement of
special educational needs (SEN) and up fourteen
times more likely to have school action plus
status. NEET young people are more likely to
have no or low qualification levels. 32 of young
people in the NEET cohort have no
qualifications in comparison with only 7 of the
non-NEET population.
8

Behaviour, characteristics and circumstances of
young people NEET contd
Young people NEET are likely to come from
workless backgrounds. Around one in four of all
young people are from workless households compared
to over half of young people in the NEET
group. It is possible to identify NEET
hot-spots at a unitary authority level in Wales
and these are closely linked to areas suffering
from high levels of inactivity and unemployment
amongst the older adult population.

High level categorisation of NEET
  • Core NEET those with social and behavioural
    problems or other more complex needs including
    those who come from families where worklessness
    and unemployment is an accepted norm.
  • 2. Floating or at-risk NEET young people
    who lack direction, motivation and tend to have
    spells of being NEET in between attending school
    or further education courses or low wage, low
    skill employment with little or no training
    opportunities.
  • 3. Transition/gap year NEET those young
    people who have chosen to take time out before
    progressing onto further or higher education
    opportunities and are likely to return to
    education, training or employment, but it is not
    always clear when this will occur.
