    • Education transitions
      imminent introduction of the age 18 education and training participation age
      rapidly rising youth unemployment rate
      strong focus on improving our understanding of the drivers of education and labour market transitions
      holistic approach to the numerous transitions young people make when moving from adolescence into adulthood
      way in which different types of transition (in education, employment, family life and housing) interact.
    • Risky behaviour
      risky or anti-social behaviours/ positive behaviours
      how these behaviours interact with one another
      not all young people persist in such behaviours over the long term
      many behaviours are strongly linked with youth identity formation and social interactions
      Costs/ benefits of different strategies
      universal versus targeted
      when best to intervene.
    • Disadvantaged and vulnerable groups
      not all young people are affected in the same way by adversity
      many of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups are more likely to be unemployed, to have children outside of marriage, to be socially isolated, to commit crimes, and to live in poverty
      need for better understanding of these specific and cumulative risk effects.
      examine in more detail how disadvantaged and vulnerable youth navigate important transitions
    • CBA – drugs policy
      evaluation of whether policies based on prevention/communication or those focused on treatment/enforcement are more cost effective
      determine a sensible “balance of intervention”
      CBA Methodology: review of existing literature, use of published data on costs
      monetary values on immediate impacts of programmes through linking those impacts to longer term individual and social benefits
      using available evidence to put estimates on these monetary values
    • Jobs without training
      significant numbers of young people enter jobs that have no training attached with low pay and short contracts
      most focus on NEETs - less analysis of the JWT group
      yet these young people are a large and important component of the youth labour market
      they make up around two-thirds of those who leave full-time education post-16
      poor initial job quality likely to have long-lasting effects on future employment, earnings, and skill development
