The percentage of young people who are not in education, employment or training or whose employment status is unknown
This data is provided to the Department for Education by Herefordshire Council. The Council reports on the number of young people who are not in education, employment or training and the number whose status it is not aware of. We have combined these figures because reducing the number of NEET young people is the improvement and if the local authority does not know their status it cannot be sure that it is improving.
This figure will reduce if a higher proportion of young people move into education, employment and training. Because it also includes young people where the council is not sure of their status it will also go down if the council improves its data and finds that these young people are, in fact, in employment, education or training.
