Abstract:Improving the performance of youth in the labour market is a crucial challenge in OECD countries. Declines in the number of new entrants to the labour market and ageing populations and workforces do not seem to have translated into much better labour market outcomes for youth. Thus it remains crucial to maintain or reinforce policies aimed at better equipping young people with the skills required by the labour market and helping them accomplish a successful transition from school to work.
