This paper begins by defining disengagement and teasing out the key risks, behaviours, and outcomes that are associated with it. These are then used to develop a basket of indicators which allow thinking about disengagement strategically and to understand the relative degree of risk that exists across different Local Enterprise Partnership areas. The key contribution of this paper is the presentation of a map of disengagement which assesses the relative likelihood of young people being disengaged across each of the Local Enterprise Partnerships.
