Life, Disrupted: Young People, Education and Employment Before and After COVID-19

Research output: Book/ReportOther Reportpeer-review

Abstract

The past eighteen months have revealed long-term labour market trends and highlighted the impact they have on young people. This paper explores the fault lines that run through the relationship between education and work, such as the contested impact of digital disruption on young people, the rhetoric of soft skills, and challenges to the notion of careers and the idea of a linear pathway to a traditional occupation.
