There are certainly some positive initiatives, such as the new Youth Employment Strategy, a package of measures designed to help young people transition into the workforce, and the measures to assist employers take on apprentices. But there are still some unhelpful rulings such as the waiting period for young people to access welfare payments, and the lack of detail surrounding the proposed higher education changes.
