Youth Commission report 3 - Tomorrow's World: Future of the Labour Market


This report looks at the likely future changes in demographics and the labour market, which will set the context for meeting these future challenges. Learning, skills and employment services will need to help young people to adapt to these changes.

The Youth Commission aims to find ways to improve education and employment opportunities for England’s 16-24-year olds. Its first report identified five key challenges:

  • Better supporting 700,000 young people not in education, employment or training;
  • Increasing the number of young people qualified to at least Level 3;
  • Improving attainment in literacy and numeracy and other basic skills;
  • Creating a diversity of higher level learning routes through life; and
  • Support job quality, career progression, and economic security.
