Youth Employment and Training

Youth Employment and Training. Australia is now in its ninth year of economic growth (though Australia's export-led growth is now at risk) . How have young people fared in this economic climate? This report, prepared by Richard Curtain, uses recent official data to assess the labour market and education standing of 15 to 24 year olds. Despite the favourable economic climate there remains a considerable number of young adults who face difficulties finding work and staying in education or training. International comparisons show that Australia?s labour market is not as "youth friendly" as other countries that have better coordinated school-to-work arrangements. "How Young People are Faring, Key Indicators 2001", is published by the Dusseldorp Skills Forum.
