Young English people classed as Neets at lowest level in 20 years


The proportion of young people in England not in education, employment or training – known as Neets – has fallen to its lowest level for 20 years, thanks to a larger number staying on at school, new government figures show.

Some 81% of 16-18-year-olds were in education or work-based learning at the end of 2013, an increase of two percentage points since the previous year, while the proportion of Neets fell from 9.2% in 2012 to 7.6% in 2013 – the lowest level since similar records began in 1994.
