Statistics says that the level of youth unemployment in Britain is over a million right now. In the 21 st centuary this is considered to be the obvious feature of recession. However, the core problem is that the country has a few jobs to offer to students without qualifications.
Search of the first job has been problematic for all young people regardless of the level of education acquired. According to the data from UK Commission for Employmentand Skills (2009), the percentage of 16 year old school leavers who get jobs is only 6% while the figure is 10% for graduates from colleges and schools. The largest part of these job types is part-time and is unlikely to become temporary.
Nowadays professional and scientific jobs, and IT are two of the most successful sectors of the economy. Number of young workers employed is lower than the average proportion and probably these sectors will help to increase the level of youth employment in the future.
The question is: where do the jobs go when local people are unemployed in London? Each year graduates from higher institutions seek jobs but do not succeed. Is there any future for them?
During last summer exams, the percentage of 16-year-old students who achieved five A* to C grades was lower than 60%. It is clear that education must be improved. However, if thousands of students can not meet the requirements of the traditional education, is there any way to fix the problem of employment now?
