Almost 1m young people not in education, employment or training | Society | The Guardian

Almost 1 million young people are not in school, work or training, according to official figures which underline the extent to which the economic slowdown is hurting school-leavers.

One in six 16- to 24-year-olds was a "neet" (not in education, employment or training) in the last three months of 2011, according to statistics published by the Department casino for Education (pdf).

The figures show that while the proportion of 16- to 18-year-olds who were out of school or training has remained stable year-on-year, there has been a big drop in the employment rate for school-leavers.
