LiveCareerChat@Lockdown No 4 – Youth Transitions: Creating Pathways to Success
6th July 2020
3pm – 4pm (UK time)
Dr Anna Riggall, Head of Research, Educational Development Trust (EDT) England
Dr Deirdre Hughes OBE, Research Director, DMH Associates
Graeme Smith, Research and Evaluation Executive at Skills Development Scotland
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!

Date: Thursday, 20 February 2020 | Time: 10.30 am – 11.30 am GMT
The Further Education and Skills Handbook 2019 says:
‘Before making the final judgement on overall effectiveness, inspectors must evaluate the extent to which the education and training provided meets the needs of all learners. This includes learners with SEND and those who have high needs.’
This statement makes it very clear that Ofsted sees learners and apprentices with SEND as hugely important. In this webinar, you’ll hear how to improve the quality of provision for learners with SEND, what Ofsted expects from providers and how to deliver it using Cognassist.
You’ll learn more about:
- how SEND learners are now high profile in the EIF
- why you should ensure that you quickly identify any additional learning support needs and plan learning to meet these needs
- why it’s important to individualise learning and support to meet learners’ needs and help them embed concepts into their long-term memory
- why impact is so important and how you can help learners improve, develop and achieve

Thursday 2nd August 2018 | 12 – 1pm. This webinar will discuss some basic information about neurodiversity and what aspects need to be considered when developing contract solutions. It will provide an opportunity for shared discussion.
In recent times the term Neurodiversity has been used as a term encompassing 1 in 8 individuals in the general population, 1 in 4 in the unemployed and 1 in 3 in the prison population who may have some specific barriers to engaging in learning and gaining employment.
These include conditions such as ADHD; Autism Spectrum Disorder ( Condition), Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia and Developmental language disorders. The term ‘Hidden impairments’ have also been used as an umbrella term as the challenges may not always be obvious to others.
There is also increasing interest in the potential skills and talents that individuals can showcase if appropriately supported and reasonable adjustments made.
