The changing nature of the school-to-work transition process in OECD countries

Schools Australia OECD countries

This paper highlights the contrasting trends in youth labour market performance over the past decade using a wide range of indicators. It presents new evidence on the length of transitions from school to work, and the degree to which temporary jobs serve as either traps for young people or stepping-stones to good careers. The paper also reviews some recent policy innovations to improve youth employment prospects.
