Youth Unemployment Research

30 May 2014

Recent research by Dr Benjamin Hopkins of the School of Management and Business has been highlighted by both Aberystwyth University and the British Sociological Association. In a collaborative project with Professor Melanie Simms of the University of Leicester and Dr Sophie Gamwell of Middlesex University, issues with the provision of careers advice were noted which could harm school leavers in both the national and international jobs markets.

The press release from Aberystwyth University can be found here and the press release from the BSA can be found here.  A wider report by Simms, Hopkins and Gamwell investigating Skills for Sustainable Employment: Strategies to Tackle Youth Unemployment is available from the UnionLearn website.
