During the months of December 2014 to February 2015, the State Training Board conducted a youth survey which aimed to identify the barriers and challenges confronted by young people as they embark on education, training and employment.
The Youth Survey, which was completed through social media and in partnership with Student Edge, resulted in 1186 responses received.
The survey forms part of Phase 2 of the State Training Board’s Youth Unemployment Project. Data captured will be used to develop a draft Strategic Youth Workforce Development Plan.
The survey report is now available on the State Training Board’s website.
