EU Sources - An assessment of the Youth Guarantee - April 30, 2017

The European Court of Auditors published a report that examines the progress made by the EU Youth Guarantee in ensuring that under 25’s receive an offer of employment, education, apprenticeship or training within four months of leaving school or becoming unemployed. The results fall short of expectations with regard to of providing a good quality offer to all NEETs (those not in employment, education or training). In the introduction the Auditors state that besides the financial consequences borne directly by young people, long periods of unemployment also have a negative effect in terms of future employability, increased risk of poverty, social exclusion and their role in society as a whole. In addition, there is a risk that talent and skills are not used optimally. The report includes several interesting graphs and figures.
