Hodgson, Ann; Spours, Ken; Smith, David; Jeanes, Julia – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Education providers and employers working together to prepare young people and adults for employment is internationally accepted as a key factor in effective technical and vocational education. In the English context, however, we argue that two related orthodoxies have prevailed -- 'employer engagement' and 'skills supply' -- in which education…

Literature suggests that educational attainment is one of the significant factors affecting youth transition to work.

Lundahl, Lisbeth; Lindblad, Michael; Lovén, Anders; Mårald, Gunilla; Svedberg, Gudrun – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
This article aims to deepen understanding of the trajectories through school and into adulthood of people who did not attain valued qualifications from upper secondary school ("non-completers"), and explore the fruitfulness of careership theory for such analysis. It is based on interviews with 100 young Swedes: 81 non-completers and 19…

Corrales-Herrero, Helena; Rodríguez-Prado, Beatriz – Journal of Education and Work, 2016
For some people, a part-time job is merely an intermediate state that serves as a "stepping stone" to further employment and makes labour market integration easier. Yet, part-time work also appears in highly unstable careers. The present research aims to determine the role of part-time employment for young people with non-university…

Jones, Steven; Mann, Anthony; Morris, Katy – Journal of Education and Work, 2016
Work experience placements are mandatory in the UK for all young people aged 16-18 in education, and their employability effects and associated wage premia are well noted in the literature. Through Bourdieu's lens, this article analyses and conceptualises a unique data set of reflective testimonies submitted in response to a YouGov survey of over…

Mann, Anthony; Percy, Christian – Journal of Education and Work, 2014
Since 2004, the devolved education systems of England, Scotland and Wales have introduced initiatives to increase contact between employers and young people, particularly aged 14-19, as a supplementary, co-curricular activity within mainstream education. The initiatives are motivated partly to increase wage-earning potential but studies to date…

O'Connor, Christopher D. – Journal of Education and Work, 2014
In recent decades, young people's transitions from school to work have undergone substantial changes. As young people make their way from compulsory schooling to employment, they find themselves having to navigate an increasingly complex, technologically innovative and globalised world. These social changes have prompted youth researchers to…

Stehlik, Tom – Journal of Education and Work, 2010
The "gap year" is defined as a time between the end of school and the beginning of further studies in which young people engage in a variety of activities, including paid or voluntary work.

Vaughan, Karen; Roberts, Josie – Journal of Education and Work, 2007
This article draws on the first two years of a longitudinal study of young people's pathway and career-related experiences and perspectives. It argues for a richer conceptualisation of young people's transition to study, training and employment than what simple school-to-labour market models allow. We present four clusters of young people's…

Merino, Rafael – Journal of Education and Work, 2007
The transition from school to work has been intensely examined by different disciplines. However, this transition has rarely been examined in relation to the experiences acquired by young people in their free time, from a longitudinal perspective. This article analyses the impact of one type of experience, membership in organisations, in the young…

Rathzel, Nora – Journal of Education and Work, 2006

The table below shows the unemployment rates of young people with a migrant background. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure and 11 notes.)

Devadason, Ranji – Journal of Education and Work, 2006
Some commentators suggest that the individualisation of life stories reflects a discursive shift in the ways people talk about their lives rather than a substantive change in life patterns. However, elsewhere it is argued the individualisation of life experiences is one of the defining features of the contemporary era. This paper draws on…

Roberts, Ken – Journal of Education and Work, 2006
Market reforms in former communist countries are supposed to have liberated individuals and enterprises alike. Post-industrial, globalised contexts are said to create greater risks and to require flexibility of businesses and employees, and that the latter are therefore required to become reflexive, proactive, and to take charge of their own…

O'Connor, Henrietta; Goodwin, John – Journal of Education and Work, 2004
In the early 1960s researchers at the University of Leicester carried out a unique survey into the school-to-work transition experiences of nearly 900 young adults. The survey documented most aspects of the school leavers' lives; however, the majority of the data from this Young Worker Project remained unanalysed and unpublished for nearly 40…
