Permanent Representatives Committee of the Council agreed to a recommendation establishing the Youth Guarantee

The recommendation to establish Youth Guarantee schemes was approved by the Permanent Representatives Committee of the Council. The approval means that the recommendation will be formally adopted by the Council at a later stage. Although not a legally binding act, the recommendation reflects a strong political commitment by the member states.

According to the Council, the Youth Guarantee is intended to provide for a smooth transition between school and work, support labour market integration and make sure that no young person is left out. It aims 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.
