Generational progress in the UK is grinding to a halt. Those in their 20s and 30s today have incomes no higher than the previous generation at the same age and are worse off once housing costs are considered. The wage gap between older and younger workers has widened since the 2008 financial crisis and shows no signs of closing.

In April 2021, Z2K surveyed 1,420 people who have been through the assessment process for disability benefits – 1,220 had been assessed for PIP, 885 for ESA, and 166 for the Limited Capability for Work (LCW) elements of UC.

The top findings include:

  • 70 per cent of people feel like the assessor DWP contracted to carry out their assessment did not understand their condition

  • 66 per cent of people feel like the assessment report they got after the decision did not reflect what they’d told the assessor in the assessment

NFER has published a research report that examines the impact of the apprenticeships reforms on SMEs and on young people, against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic. Putting Apprenticeships to Work for Young People also considers to what extent the apprenticeship programme needs to be refocused in order to ensure that − as we continue to emerge from the pandemic − the apprenticeship system is working to support young people and SMEs.

It's interesting that there is no mention of disability or the Supported Apprenticeship flexibilities within the report.

ClearView Research have just released new research looking into the impact of COVID19 on youth employment and future prospects. They found that 35% of young people were experiencing mental health issues due to COVID19. The pandemic has resulted in a lot of negativity and pessimism about future prospects for young people and this, coupled with the isolation caused by lockdown, can make what is an already difficult situation even more challenging.
