Officials at all levels of government must reassess their approach to out of work youngsters, with a trade body calling for greater support to turn these individuals into entrepreneurs.According to the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) the young people who do not progress to employment, training or continued education upon leaving school may be being unfairly ignored, reports Scotland on Sunday.The FSB believes that these individuals are often sidelined because they do not fit into traditional education and employment models, and should be given opportunities to start their own small firms to encourage them to contribute to the economy and put their talents to best use.The problem of young people leaving school and remaining out of work and not in study is reportedly worse in Scotland than England, a reason in part behind the recent FSB meeting with SNP first minister Alex Salmond."There are a lot of people out there who are capable of starting a business. At my school, the ones who ended up with successful companies were the rebels. You can’t afford to write off these young people," FSB chairman John Wright told Scotland on Sunday.Mr Wright also warned that encouraging more young people into further education may actually be diminishing entrepreneurship and pushing many individuals in a direction that neither best suits them nor the economy.© Adfero Ltd
