Learning to Work
Often when we talk about youth transitions it is focused on school to work, but there is a broader imperative to ensure that whether young people are at school or are graduating from other educational institutions, it is important that we focus on ensuring young people are able to obtain a job and commence successfully their future career.
Learning to Work not only focuses on this successful transition but also on how young people can acquire the skills they need to prepare them to work. It is not a new concept. Learning to work has been used in the past for a number of different concepts and policies. It is appropriate to give the term a “refresh” in these times when the future of today’s youth is a subject of widespread attention.
