Already during the course of education, young people of Slovenia face the labor market by seeking employment through a student service. After the completion of education or the expiration of student status, the majority of them register with the Employment Service of the Republic of Slovenia in the register of the unemployed, where job search becomes a real challenge, since the number of unemployed youth in Slovenia and also in Europe is worrying.
Due to the deep global economic crisis from the end of 2008 and the increase in the number of unemployed youth in Slovenia, the Government of the Republic of Slovenia has prepared measures for wider resolving of employment issues, taking into account the European Commission's guidelines for the Employment Package for Youth of December 2012, the EU Council recommendation on the establishment of the April 2013 Youth Guarantee, the development of Slovenia and the Resolution on the National Program for Youth 2013-2022.
The main emphasis of the degree paper thesis is the presentation of the measures of the Youth Guarantee in the period 2016-2020 for the activation of young people in the labor market and for examining their impact on the reduction of the number of young people in the register of the unemployed and on the statistical analysis of unemployed youth.
The survey has shown that since the beginning of the implementation of the Youth Guarantee, the number of unemployed youth has been decreasing. There are more reasons. The main ones are the increased employment and economic growth and the intensive work of advisors at the Employment Service of the Republic of Slovenia in the inclusion of youth in the Youth Guarantee. In the time of unemployment, young job seekers receive career counseling, where employability is established, interests and competences are determined, employment objectives are set up, and further activities are identified in finding a solution to unemployment. Through measures of Youth Guarantee to activate youth in the labor market, structural disparities in the labor market are eliminated, competitiveness improved, and especially the vulnerable and long-term unemployed youth are enabled to work and social inclusion.
