Main results of the 3226th Council meeting

The Council reached political agreement on a recommendation addressed to the member states to establish "youth guarantee" schemes that aim to ensure that all young people under the age of 25 who lose their job or do not find work after leaving education quickly receive a good-quality offer of employment, continued education, an apprenticeship or a traineeship. They should receive such an offer within four months of becoming unemployed or leaving formal education. The "youth guarantee" is intended to provide for a smooth transition between school and work, to support labour market integration and to make sure that no young person is left out. The measure is a key part of the response to the worsening youth employment conditions across Europe.
