Seeking views on youth at risk of limited employment

05 July 2021.

We’re seeking your views to help build knowledge and insights on young people who may be at risk of long-term limited employment.

Youth at risk of limited employment are 16 to 24 years-old who move in-and-out of low-level tertiary education, unemployment or low-paid, part-time or casual work. Research shows that young people who get stuck in this cycle at the start of their working lives are much more likely to continue this pattern into later adulthood.

Whether you are a young person, whānau member, someone who works with, supports or employs young people, or you’re involved with making policies and decisions which affect young people, we want to hear from you.

Your input will help MSD develop a joint Long-Term Insights Briefing, along with the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Business and Innovation and Employment and the Ministry for Women.

When it is finished, the Briefing will be an important knowledge base for government and communities to develop better ways to support young people at risk of limited employment.

You can find out more about this work and provide your views through a short survey
