Document Abstract

Tomorrow's world: future of the labour market

Looks at likely future changes in demographics and the labour market and the effects on education and employment opportunities for 16-24 year olds in England. Outlines the context for the study, and identifies the key trends in the labour market over the last 40 years, including sectoral changes, more women in employment and the changing nature of work. Considers the potential impact of demographic changes, including people living and working longer and becoming better qualified. Discusses whether labour market changes will bring greater insecurity or increased opportunity for young people. Presents conclusions, including that labour market participation will continue to widen among groups of young people, there will be growth in higher occupations and certain sectors, and a good skills base will become even more essential.
