LAST MODIFIED ON: 11/11/2020

 

The UK is a large, open and competitive economy with low levels of regulation in its product and labour markets. There is no specific regulation of the youth labour market, nor any specific arrangements for the governance of youth employment. Specific employment programmes for young people do exist, however, and these are among the topics covered in this chapter.
