Many employers are revitalising their recruitment of young people, especially extending apprenticeships into new areas of work and tapping more effectively into the large and diverse pool of new graduates. IES has recently undertaken major research into both apprenticeships and graduate recruitment. This workshop was a chance to tap into key findings and share effective practices with other employers.

This participative workshop covered:

■      Trends in the youth employment, unemployment and education/ training.

■      Apprenticeships: opportunities, challenges and employer-led initiatives.

■      Effective practice in graduate recruitment and links with universities.
