New British evidence shows statistically significant positive relationships exist between the number of employer contacts (such as career talks or work experience) that a young person experiences in school (between the ages of 14 and 19) and;
- Their confidence (at 19-24) in progression towards ultimate career goals
- The likelihood of whether (at 19-24) they are NEET or non-NEET
- Earnings if salaried
Further research illustrates that four interventions by businesses reduces a young person’s likelihood of being NEET by five times.
