The Learning and Skills Council response to the DfES Green Paper ‘Youth Matters’ will be of interest to Skills for Life practitioners working with young people

On 18 July 2005 the Government published the Youth Green Paper, Youth Matters. It aims to address key issues relating to how we support and challenge our teenagers, and consultation is being sought with young people, parents and professionals.

The paper builds on the vision of Every Child Matters, which promotes the idea that all young people should achieve five key outcomes (being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well-being).

The consultation sets out a package aimed at improving outcomes for all young people, with a particular emphasis on those who are disadvantaged.

The Learning and Skills Council has now published its response to Youth Matters.

Key concerns expressed in the response are:

  • quality of Information, Advice and Guidance available to young people
  • quality of learning provision in Young Offenders Institutions
  • the capacity of schools, colleges and other agencies to deliver the wider activities advocated in the Green Paper

 

The response document is available on the LSC website.
