Supporting young learners through stakeholder collaboration: Designing intervention strategies for youth employability and learning success
This collaborative project will determine effective interventions that foster employability skills and support young learners to pathway into future education, training and/or employment. An evaluation will be undertaken of key influencers on learners being work-ready, including programmes such as the Licence to Work (L2W). A big focus of this project will be how employers can be supported in providing youth-friendly workplaces.
The aim of this project is to evaluate an existing programme (L2W) that teaches young people soft skills which are recognised as core employability skills, and investigate how other key stakeholders invested in young peoples' learning and employment success can collaborate and build their capabilities to achieve this outcome.
The qualitative and quantitative methodology of the project includes:
- focus groups
- data analysis
- employer workshop evaluations.
