|On 27, 28 and 29 October 2021, OECD with ICCDPP will host a free online conference highlighting innovative research and practice focusing on how schools can prepare young people for their transitions through education into ultimate employment.|
The conference will begin with the presentation by Andreas Schleicher (OECD Director of Education and Skills) of new analysis of data from multiple national longitudinal surveys which follow young people from childhood into adulthood. Using statistical analysis, it has proved possible to identify work-related indicators of career readiness: teenage attitudes and experiences related to futures in work that are associated with better employment outcomes. At the conference, the project team will also present tools derived from the indicators for use by policy makers and practitioners. The conference will also present wider research and practice relevant to more effective youth transitions into employment.
