How schools can protect young people going into a recession: teenage indicators of adult employment outcomes
This session presents new OECD work on teenage indicators of adult employment outcomes. Analysis of national longitudinal surveys (including from Australia) that follow thousands of individuals from childhood to adulthood shows that many teenage career-related attributes and experiences are consistently associated with better than expected adult employment outcomes even in a recession.

In this webinar, Anthony Mann who leads OECD work on career readiness will introduce teenage indicators of career readiness and, drawing on PISA 2018, show how ready Australia’s teenagers were for the Covid labour market. The session will also include examples of practice that can be expected to be particularly effective in supporting young people.

The webinar draws in particular on two recent OECD publications: How schools can help protect young people in a recession and Career ready? How schools can better prepare young people for working life in the era of COVID-19.

Through 2021, the OECD Career Readiness team will be developing data-driven tools for use in schools to assess the career readiness of young people. The team will also be publishing new research papers and guidance briefs and identifying examples of practice in line with the empirical evidence.
