This report sets out a programme of actions for government agencies to improve education, training and employment outcomes for young people to build on and improve the pipeline of support to:

  • prevent young people from falling into unemployment and/or non-participation in education or training and put in place the building blocks for success through earlier identification and effective interventions to better build labour market preparedness.
  • support young people to make informed choices and good transitions in a complex environment through better careers guidance and job brokering; creating better incentives to employ and train people with challenges; strengthening partnerships with whānau, hapū, iwi, and community; expanding effective pastoral care/mentoring to those that need it; promoting more collaboration and connectivity across services; and scaling effective interventions.
  • ensure young people have employment opportunities and access to the support they need to overcome barriers and get back on track through increasing driver licence uptake and creating employment opportunities.
