Data collected in ESRC′s 16‐19 Initiative on 5,000 young people′s attitudes to training and experience of training are analysed. Two groups of young people aged 15‐16 years old and 17‐18 years old in 1987 were followed up for two years in Swindon, Sheffield, Liverpool and Kirkcaldy. The findings show a generally positive attitude to training, stronger in the younger than the older group. But local economic conditions are critical in determining what kind of training is available and what outcomes follow it \em\ both of which are fundamental to the way in which it is received.
