How successful are students in moving from education to work?

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This indicator shows the number of years young people can be expected to spend in education, employment and non-employment. During the past decade, young people have spent more time in initial education, delaying their entry into the workforce. Part of this additional time is spent combining work and study. The influence of the labour market on education, and vice versa, is both strong and complex.
