Councils supporting youth transition and employment, where next?

Main Participants:

Chair: TBC

The session will share good practice but also consider the service opportunities and barriers for building on local success to best prepare all young people for the world of work, and the preparedness for raising compulsory participation to 18 years old from 2015.  There will also be an opportunity to consider the future council role in post-16 education, careers advice at schools and relationship with employers to enable positive reform.  The LGA plans to launch a report into the future of careers advice for young people at the session.
