Young Australians experiencing disadvantage are particularly at risk of poorer educational and employment outcomes, and this is exacerbated by economic uncertainty. This has long-term impacts on many aspects of their lives, including income, housing, health and wellbeing, family formation and community connectedness. The Pathways, Engagement and Transitions (PET) study focuses on the experiences of young people experiencing disadvantage. It aims to understand their pathways through work and study over time, the factors that influence these pathways, and what more could be done to strengthen young people’s post-school outcomes. A particular strength of the PET study is that it is hearing directly from young people on these matters. Over three years (2021–2023), PET is following two cohorts of young people experiencing disadvantage. These young people were in Year 10 or Year 12 in late 2020 and on The Smith Family’s long term educational scholarship program, Learning for Life. September 2022
