Youth Select Committee calls for evidence on work experience

15 May 2018   (0 Comments)

The Youth Select Committee announced today a new inquiry into barriers to work experience. The Committee is calling for evidence from a wide range of witnesses, including businesses and charities, as well as young people who have been directly affected by these barriers.

There is particular concern as recent data revealed that half a million young people are unemployed. 

The committee will look at issues including:

  • What does good quality work experience look like?
  • What do young people and businesses expect to get from it?
  • How important is good quality work experience to successful industrial strategy?
  • What evidence is there that work experience boosts social mobility?

The Youth Select Committee call for evidence closes on Monday 18th June 2018 and the Committee will hold oral evidence sessions in the House of Commons in July.  

 

Who can submit evidence?

The Committee would welcome submissions from a wide range of stakeholders, including young people and the organisations that support them, businesses and schools.
