Youth unemployment has decreased, however; there is a complex picture underneath this, and one in which it is apparent that some groups of young people are particularly disadvantaged.
Half of all young people with a declared or assessed disability are in further education 9 months after leaving school. However, by the time they are 26 they are four times as likely to be unemployed as their non-disabled peers.
Looked after children are least likely to go into a positive destination after leaving school - 1 in 3 is unemployed 9 months after leaving school .
How do we, and should we, ensure that we attract, retain and develop young people in the world of work?
This free webinar facilitated by Robert Cole of inclusion consultancy, Forth Perspectives, will show how inclusive diversity is a driver for business success: reflecting customers and society at large, encouraging innovation and harnessing different perspectives and approaches.
Despite our good intentions there’s a lack of progress in true equality at work and in society, Robert will talk about the challenges faced by diverse groups, the impact of unconscious bias in decisions we make about people at work. He aims to show how business leaders can help to deliver fair and equal outcomes and avoid bias and subjectivity at key points in people’s careers, starting with recruitment. With a focus on Inclusive leadership, you’ll learn about the power of being authentic and inclusive in our organisations. The webinar will be interactive, engaging, informative and practical.
