This webinar presents new international research findings on youth transitions. Societies everywhere are undergoing a deep transformation. More than one in six young people have stopped working since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic (ILO, May 2020) while those who remain employed have seen their working hours cut by 23 per cent.
“The pandemic is inflicting a triple shock on young people. Not only is it destroying their employment, but it is also disrupting education and training, and placing major obstacles in the way of those seeking to enter the labour market or to move between jobs.”
New youth policies and innovative practices will be essential to address a potential tsunami of youth unemployment and prolonged transitions from schooling to the world of work. We will present findings from a new international ‘think piece’ drawn from 105 research reports on school to work transitions – starting with career-related learning in primary schools and beyond, up to the age of 25 years old.
The webinar is limited to 500 delegates, so register your place quickly so you do not miss out. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Hope you are able to join us!
