LESSONS LEARNED (OECD) FROM THE 2008 GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS
Every crisis is a learning opportunity.
So what did we learn from the effects of the last worldwide economic crisis, the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, on the lives and opportunities for young people?
The OECD has just published some of the lessons of effective government handling of and responses to the 2008 crisis. Three measures to support young people were identified:
-the need for strong connections between education institutions and employers
-the provision of well-focused career guidance and information for all learners
-the introduction of remedial interventions for young people after they leave education.
