Improving transitions from school to work through engaging youth in policy dialogue

The objective of this partnership is to achieve improved youth transitions between education and the world of work through engaging youth in policy dialogue on TVET. Youth constitute a large proportion of the population in SIDS. Whilst youth are a huge asset for sustainable development, too many young people experience difficulties making school-to-work transitions and in meeting their aspirations. Unemployment, low paid work and a lack of job opportunities are major concerns. Youth can also have a negative impact on social cohesion and contribute to concerns about rising crime in SIDS.Sustain...[more]
