In August, ACYS conducted a webinar on the issue, bringing together experts, those at the ‘coalface’ and young people to provide insight into how to best support young people and provide opportunities to secure their futures. You can download the webinar here and find further information from ACYS here http://www.acys.info/facts/webinars.
AYAC's previous work on this issue includes the report ‘Beyond Learn or Earn’, which gave young people themselves the chance to speak about their own experiences of school and work and government policy, in their own words. AYAC also brought together a range of experts on the issues of employment and education at AYAC 2013 National Youth Affairs Conference, in partnership with OurSay. Keep on eye out for those videos, which we hope to upload soon!
