– DAVID JONES, SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WALES
The Government is acutely aware of the problems some young people are continuing to experience when looking for their first job, and are being realistic about the scale of the challenge. The latest unemployment figures have shown a decrease in levels of youth unemployment; however, the number of young people currently out of work in Wales remains too high.
The range of support available to help support young people into work is extensive and varied, and this summit provides the perfect platform and audience to help get that message across.
A jobs summit is being held in Newport to tackle the issue of youth unemployment in Wales.
