How can schools be confident that students are well prepared to enter the world of work? With concerns over youth unemployment growing, the OECD is undertaking an unprecedented analysis of national longitudinal datasets that explore the relationship between teenagers’ attitudes towards their future career and their actual employment outcomes as young adults.
In this webinar, co-sponsored by the International Centre for Career Development and Public Policy (ICCDPP), the OECD Career Readiness in the Pandemic team will look at young people’s thoughts about employment and what they have to tell us about better employment outcomes. Key questions include: Does it matter if a teenager is uncertain about their career plans or struggles to see the relevance of their education to later employment? How can career advisors encourage and enable career-minded thinking? And what is the wider importance of research in enhancing career guidance?
We will hear from:
-Sareena Hopkins, ICCDPP Board member and Executive Director of the Canadian Career Development Foundation
-Stephen Logan, Deputy Headteacher, Malet Lambert School, Hull, UK
-Anthony Mann, Senior Policy Analyst, OECD
