Young people’s participation in education, employment and training and those not in education, employment or training (NEET).

This collection contains:

  • the annual publication of national participation figures of young people aged 16 to 18
  • the annual release of NEET (not in education, employment or training) and NET (not in education or training) figures based on results from the Labour Force Survey (LFS), which were previously published quarterly

From 2021, the Department for Education will be publishing the participation in education, training and employment and NEET statistics annual brief on a new statistics site, Explore Education Statistics (EES). You can find our archived statistics on the National Archives.
