With so much uncertainty, perhaps it is less surprising that just under one million young people remain out of employment, education or training.

Young people are eager to find out more information on the full range of options open to them - both academic and vocational- as 20% of those polled wanted more information than they were currently getting. Research from the CBI and LifeSkills Youth Barometer reveals that 93% of young people are not getting the careers advice they need.

What we need is relatively simple: businesses to recognise that those under 25 could become a talent pool that will help them grow but they have an active role to play in helping them understand and then develop the skills that are needed. It could start with offering work experience, a traineeship or apprenticeship. What's important is realising this interaction will inspire a young person about what their future could hold and directly influence their success. Especially for the one in six who grow up in families where neither parent is employed.
