#Skills2030 - Now is the time to provide young people with the skills they need to succeed
Young people in the UK are not receiving equality of opportunity- and the proof is crystal clear. Social mobility is falling according to the Social Mobility Commission, and the disadvantage gap between students is much higher than we thought, according to the recent FFT Database Report which details how schools have been off-rolling problem pupils to bump up school results.
The FTT Education Datalab report, "Who’s Left 2019" released this morning (5 Dec) shows that ‘off-rolling’ hides the true extent of the disadvantage gap in schools, and that low-achieving pupils are not being recorded as they are removed from rolls to raise GCSE results.
This morning (21 Nov) the NEET (Young people not in education, employment or training) figures were released by ONS. They published their latest estimates of young people (aged 16 to 24 years) who are not in education, employment or training, by age and sex: Young people not in education, employment or training (NEET), UK: November 2019.
