Chris Grayling, the country's employment minister, said there were many positive signs in data showing the number of unemployed 16 to 24-year-olds has fallen by 71,000, the third consecutive quarterly fall.
He described the numbers as "another encouraging set of figures", pointing out that the fall in the number of unemployed young people means that the total is now lower than it was before the general election.
"It's also good news that employment is going in the right direction with half a million more people in private sector jobs compared to this time last year," he added.
Recently, Dr John Philpott, chief economic adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, said the latest UK unemployment figures suggest that the country is continuing to recover from the effects of the economic downturn as more employment positions are created.
