Making Chocolate Teapots: Striving for ‘Good’ Youth Work Policy Briefs Launch

What’s on offer?

This is a launch event for policy briefs on improving youth employment outcomes. The event consists of PechaKucha presentations (20 slides*20 seconds each = 6 minutes and 40 seconds per presentation) from eight researchers on improving youth employment outcomes, followed by Q&A from the audience. The event will take place virtually on Zoom.

What’s it about?

The event is an output of the ESRC/EAWOP Small Group Meeting (June 2020) we organised and ran on Young People’s Work, Employment and Careers. Eight researchers from the meeting have agreed to create policy briefs based on their research findings. Presentations will be thematically organised: career guidance, good youth work, and COVID-19 impact and recovery. Considering the disproportionately negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth employment opportunities and the heightened importance of career guidance for securing work in such uncertain labour market conditions, the event is timely in contributing to the evidence-base on COVID-19 sustainable recovery.
