The head of the National Employment Service says that around 20,000 young people risk never setting foot in a workplace. Writing in today's edition of Dagens Nyheter together with the head of the school inspectorate, employment service boss Angeles Bermudez-Svankvist says that there has to be more help for those who neither go on to further education, or start work.

An investigation that Angeles Bermudez-Svankvist passes to the government today, says that the local municipalities have to be more active in contacting people aged 16-19. The employment service also wants to get involved earlier, for example by offering those as young as 16-years-old work experience placements.

And the two government agency heads also say that those aged 16-17 should be supported with public funds for taking part in work schemes.
