Abstract
The number of young people that graduate from upper secondary education has decreased while a growing number of young people are in an outside position in the sense that they neither work or study or have any other known occupation. In addition to this the labour market has gone trough changes, which has brought difficulties for some groups to establish themselves on to the labour market. One of the groups that have been affected by this is the young people. As an answer to the increasing number of young people in an outside position, a new law was introduced on the 1st of July 2005.

The number of young people that graduate from upper secondary education has decreased while a growing number of young people are in an outside position in the sense that they neither work or study or have any other known occupation. In addition to this the labour market has gone trough changes, which has brought difficulties for some groups to establish themselves on to the labour market. One of the groups that have been affected by this is the young people. As an answer to the increasing number of young people in an outside position, a new law was introduced on the 1st of July 2005. The law is called (kommunala uppföljningsansvaret) and it stands for the municipality's responsibility to follow up on young people between the age of 16-19 years that is not enrolled in any upper secondary school and that does not have any other known occupation.

The purpose of this essay has been to examine how the responsible administrations in Helsingborgs municipality view their responsibility to follow up young people between the ages of 16-19 years and the practical application of the law, and also if they can see any risks with not following up on young people in that age span. Furthermore we wanted to examine if they could see any consequences with dropping out from upper secondary school and possible reasons to why some students chose to do this.

We chose to do a qualitative study based on eight interviews with employees that through their work comes into contact with (uppföljningsansvaret) or students in upper secondary school or students that have dropped out. We came to conclusion that all the employees we interviewed saw a need for (uppföljningsansvaret) to prevent young people from ending up in an outside position, which they could see clear risks for. Today Helsingborgs municipality doesn't have a fixed plan as to how (uppföljningsansvaret) is going to be fully organised. When it comes to dropping out from upper secondary school our interviewed employees saw consequences foremost in risks of ending up in an outside position but also decreased chances in competing in the labour market. A market that is already difficult for young people as it is. (Less)
