Investing in Youth: Slovenia

image of Investing in Youth: Slovenia

The series Investing in Youth builds on the expertise of the OECD on youth employment, social policy and skills. It covers both OECD countries and key emerging economies. The report on Slovenia presents new results from a comprehensive analysis of the situation of young people in Slovenia, exploiting various sources of survey-based and administrative data. The report provides a detailed assessment of education, employment and social policies in Slovenia from an international perspective, and offers tailored recommendations to help improve the school-to-work transition. Earlier reviews in the same series have looked at youth policies in Brazil (2014), Latvia and Tunisia (2015), Australia, Lithuania and Sweden (2016), Japan (2017), Norway (2018), and Finland, Korea and Peru (2019).


Activating young people in Slovenia

This chapter analyses how to improve support for young people who left the education system and became unemployed or inactive. It examines the services that registered unemployed youth in Slovenia receive from the public employment services and explores the impact of the COVID‑19 crisis. Particular attention is devoted to three groups of young people with a high likelihood of becoming long-term NEET in Slovenia, i.e. young mothers, young people with a migrant background and Roma youth. The chapter also provides a detailed profile of young people who do not, or no longer, reach out to public employment services and discusses ways to improve outreach to these hidden NEETs.
