Who does this impact?
What is being measured?
The percentage of young people aged 16-18 who are not in education, employment or training.
What is the background?
Whilst levels of 16-18 year olds who are not in education, employment or training is comparatively good in Nottingham City, the small percentage who are ‘hardest to help’ include those young people who have Youth Offending Team Orders. Consequently, a sustained co-ordinated approach will be required to improve on the current levels.
