    Abstract

    An analysis is made of the effect of YTS participation on the subsequent employment and earnings of participants. It uses data from the first cohort of the England and Wales Youth Cohort Studies. These focus on a cohort of young persons who reached the minimum school-leaving age in 1984 and were eligible for entry into the original one-year version of YTS. The results indicate that participation is positively associated with subsequent employment and negatively associated with subsequent earnings.
