Plans to tackle youth unemployment are being drawn up by Derbyshire County Council to get more young people into work, further education or training.

While the number of 16 to 17–year–olds without a job, in education or training fell slightly this year, figures from May show around a third (2,675) of Derbyshire’s unemployed are aged 18 to 24 – higher than the national average.

Councillor Joan Dixon, Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport, said: “We want to build a strong economy in Derbyshire and provide a brighter future for our young people. We offer a wide range of support for young people but we need to look at why youth employment is so high and find new ways to getting more young people into jobs.

“We’re working with employers to make sure local youngsters are equipped with the skills they need to work in Derbyshire’s economy and we’re asking what employers need to create jobs and grow their businesses – such as Global Derbyshire grants to help small businesses develop and create employment opportunities.”
