What works for the labour market integration of youth at risk
High Level Learning Exchange on ‘Designing and implementing effective strategies to support the integration and retention in the labour market of youth at risk’
This thematic paper was prepared for the high level Learning Exchange on 'Designing and implementing effective strategies to support the integration and retention in the labour market of youth at risk'.
The paper considers the impact of the recession on youth at risk in Europe and 'what works' in encouraging sustained or effective labour market integration of young people, including those who are NEET.
The paper also considers the issues surrounding the focus on apprenticeships and related training for youth at risk who are less likely to be accepted for such training placements. It also looks at the benefits of a tailored and individual approach in addressing the complex and multiple needs of youth at risk. The paper goes on to consider other key measures that have been taken recently to encourage labour market transitions of youth at risk, and success factors in facilitating these transitions.
