This chapter looks at the efforts of a group of young people who are making progress in a ‘tough’ labour market. It reviews the experience of young people in the labour market, and draws on research from the SEQUAL project into a small group of Connexions clients. The discussion explores their priorities and understandings, and then connects these to the wider evidence of labour market processes that impact on young people. It also challenges government policy discourses that view youth as a uniquely ‘transitional’ social status.

Keywords: youth discrimination; labour market access; young people's experiences; Connexions clients; labour market process; government policy discourses
