Young people are being hit hardest by the economic impact of COVID-19 on the labour market. They are 2.5 times more likely to be working in the sectors most affected by the pandemic, which has led to a rise in youth unemployment, economic inactivity and young people claiming benefits - the latter increasing by 120% compared to pre pandemic levels. Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, there were already 760,000 young people not in education or employment in the UK who are at risk of falling further behind.

This seminar will look at the support in place for young people during the economic crisis and beyond. What additional measures are needed to create opportunities, help employers and provide the right information and advice to young people? The speakers will consider these points as well as looking ahead to the economic recovery, sharing new research on what this means for sectors and geographies and how the labour market could evolve.
