The OECD and ICCDPP will be working together over the next six months on teenage career planning thinking and behaviour.
Research to date suggests that:
- The career planning thinking and behaviour of teenagers impacts on their adult employment success and transitions – the more engagement, the more success
- Teenagers may under-estimate or over-estimate the qualifications that they need for the job that they are aiming for
- Under-estimation suggests a lack of knowledge and understanding of the qualifications required for occupations and of the learning pathways to these
- Disadvantaged students are more likely to under-estimate the requirements
- Engagement by employers in careers education/learning programmes can have a positive outcome value on the adult employment success of teenagers. View reports and publications: https://www.educationandemployers.org/
Examples sought: programmes and activities that are effective in helping teenagers to explore and experience the world of work. Please send your examples to Jonathan.Diaz@oecd.org
