Labour market Trends – Preparing young people for the future

Young people today are facing an increasingly complex and competitive labour market and the need for well-directed careers education in schools has never been more important. The skills they need to successfully navigate their way into the world of work are constantly changing but how can we equip them for the jobs that don’t yet exist?
