 Surge in Number of ‘Neets’ in England

Neets, a term used to refer to youngsters between 17 and 24 years of age and doing nothing - not in education, employment or training, have reached a record high of 770,000 in England.

The Department of Education estimates that about one in six youngsters in England fall under the 'Neets' category.

According to Unison's Dave Prentist , the government has taken a wrong step by removing the education maintenance allowance; this may cause many drop outs from college.  "This will result in thousands more ­vulnerable young people at risk of falling into the Neet trap," he said.
