    Enabling Sustainable Transitions From Education To Employment

    *This event is free but please reserve your tickets below by 26th January 2018 for catering purposes.

    ‘Working Futures’ brings together key stakeholders - including employers, schools, policy-makers and NGOs - to discuss the challenges facing young people in transition from education to employment.

    Building on examples of good practice and international research, we aim to identify and promote concrete ways forward to enhance youth employment and reduce the likelihood of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training).
