From Education to Employment
As the secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Youth Employment we are delighted to share with you our series 2 report: Inquiry in to Pathways from education to employment.
The series ran through January to March 2017.
As part of the first meeting Youth Employment UK Ambassadors were asked to share their experiences from the education system, you can read our ambassador write up here.
The second meeting drew presentations from Tim Dibb from The Department of Work and Pensions and Richard Beard from Talent Match Black Country accompanied by two young people who had been supported through the programme.
The third, and final meeting of the series welcomed Damian Hinds, Minister for Employment who answered questions from our youth audience, shared the work his department is doing and received a copy of this report.
14 submissions were received for this report sharing a breadth of topics, expertise and insights. Several key themes came through including; consistency and quality careers advice, work experience, networking and information and updating the provision, information and skills given to our schools.
