What really works in terms of teenage career preparation?
REIMAGINING CAREERS ED 2021 | SESSION 2
We're reimagining how we do pretty much everything - careers education included. This series of virtual meet ups is for anyone involved with student futures particularly in a K-12 setting.
The purpose is to bring together a collective of folk who are passionate about making careers education as inspiring and powerful as it should be. Each week we have a different discussion focus and invite guest speakers to share their insights and ideas.
What really works in career guidance?
New insights from an international analysis of big data.
Anthony will present on the latest results from the OECD Career Readiness project. His team has been analysing big datasets to see what really works in terms of teenage career preparation. Using data from multiple countries, including Australia, the project has identified important new teenage indicators of better outcomes in adult employment. These include how teenagers think about their futures in work and what they do to explore them. The presentation will include results from the 2018 round of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) that shows how well countries are doing in preparing young people to compete for jobs.
Dr Anthony Mann works at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris working with countries from around the world, including Australia, to share insights from international research to help improve outcomes for young people. He now leads work on how schools can best prepare teenagers for successful transitions into work, having previously focused on Vocational Education and Training and Adult Learning. Previously, he was Director of Policy and Research at UK charity Education and Employers, helping to design online mechanism for engaging young people with employers. Prior to that, he worked for the UK Ministry of Education, working particularly on work-related learning. His publications include collections of essays on research into the impact and delivery of employer engagement in education.
