EVENT OVERVIEW

The 2nd Annual Future of Youth Employment Forum will consider the best practice strategies to advance and enable youth employment, participation and engagement in the current and future workforce.

This year we take the discussion forward with a broader set of themes with each getting a sustained focus. In doing this, we look in-depth at some of the issues that create barriers and gaps and explore the models for quality youth engagement, motivation and meaningful support, the pathways for transition to the workforce and the need for connectivity between the future of work and how we re-enthuse and prepare young people. In essence, this conference will focus on strategies to improve transitions to work for young people and how to best prepare them for Australia’s rapidly evolving world of work.

New for 2016:

  • A broader focus on the quality of engagement at every point of the transition from school to the workforce
  • Sector leading insights on the future of work and the state of play for the Australian youth workforce
  • Multiple case studies on peer and youth led programs for engagement
  • Thought leaders speak on purposeful and decisive pathways from education to employment

Key benefits of attending:

  • Gain insights on the future of work and the future of the youth workforce
  • Discuss how skilling and training can be connected to emerging workforce trends
  • Hear best practice strategies for quality re-engagement of young people
  • Enhance the quality, relevance and direction of skilling, transitions and pathways
  • Learn how latest policies and strategies can overcome entrenched disadvantage and barriers to employment
  • Explore key initiatives from the National Youth Employment Strategy
