This briefing uses key findings from two LSAY research reports to describe post-school education, training and labour market activities of young people during the period from 1996-2000. It also identifies some of the factors that affect young people's chances of obtaining full-time employment or not becoming unemployed. The results suggest that the early career and labour market outcomes of young people are largely positive. Making a good start upon leaving school, either by engaging in full-time work, an apprenticeship or university study increases the likelihood of success in subsequent years. [Author abstract, ed]
