To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what steps he plans to take to reduce the number of young people not in education, employment or training; and if he will make a statement. (320693)

We published “Investing in Potential” in December 2009 setting out the decisive steps we are taking to reduce the proportion of young people who are not in education, employment or training. Through our September and January Guarantees, we are offering 16 and 17-year-olds a place in learning. The Young Person’s Guarantee will ensure that 18 to 24-year-olds still unemployed after six months will be guaranteed access to a job, training or work experience.
