Inclusion through employability : youth work approaches to unemployment /

by Goldring, Ian | SALTO Youth Inclusion Resource Centre | Guidoum, Yamina.

Publisher: Brussel, Belgium SALTO Youth Inclusion Resource Centre 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2011 Bibliography : pp. 53-56 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Young people's experiences of employment are at present, and have been for a decade or so, characterised by precariousness, a hollowing out of opportunity for quality employment, a lengthening yo-yo trajectory in and out of short-term work, unemployment and training or education, and growing ranks of 'NEETs' (Not in Education, Employment or Training) or socalled 'Zero Status' young people across Europe, not engaged in any kind of work or learning and without any significant personal project for the future. This report presents the key findings from a review of recent literature and research on youth employment and social exclusion, and a review of some successful approaches when addressing unemployment in excluded youth. The report is meant to help practitioners trying to develop and carry out successful actions to support young people, who are excluded or at risk of exclusion, in accessing employment and improving their relation to the labour market. Obviously there are differences between member states both at national and local levels, and as such the report does not intend to provide complete solutions on how to increase the employability of excluded youth but rather provides youth workers with key elements they need to consider when intervening with young people. The report is particularly directed to the stakeholders and partners of the SALTO network and Youth in Action national agencies, to help them act more effectively to bring young people with fewer opportunities towards a job.Availability: (1)

Additionally in 2009 AYAC visited each State and Territory within Australia and met youth sector representatives to gain a clear picture of what they would expect from a national peak body. During these initial consultations youth sector representatives provided broad feedback on their expectations. AYAC decided to consult further with the youth sector prior to developing a Strategic Plan. A survey was developed to seek the feedback of young people, workers from youth organisations and other stakeholders in regard to what they saw as the priorities for AYAC over the coming years. Based on consultation across the Youth Sector nationally, AYAC developed a survey in April 2010 which included a mix of open and closed questions. The survey was administered via Survey Monkey and results were collated for each question. 192 responses were received for the survey. Of those respondents approximately 56% were youth sector workers, 26% were young people and 18% were policy makers or from an advocacy body.Availability: (1)
