Workforce development: remedial education and employability measures

Abstract:In many OECD countries, the first steps on the labour market are characterised for youth by the experience, sometimes repeated, of unemployment interspersed with spells of inactivity. Thus, it is important that young people have sufficient incentives and means to return to work. For instance, jobless youth often lack the job‐search and interview skills needed for a smooth return to work and, for them, good‐quality guidance and support by the public employment services play a crucial role. The provision of these services should ideally follow a mutual‐obligations principle by which youth must actively seek work in exchange for targeted actions to help them find a job.
