Of those young people leaving youth training providers during 1991 53 per cent. in the Walsall training and enterprise council area and 51 per cent. in west midlands were not in full-time employment six months after leaving. Twenty-three per cent. described themselves as unemployed; the rest as in part-time work, on another training programme, or on a full-time course at a college or training centre or doing something else. No information is collected about trainee activity after nine and 12 months.
