The New Work Order: Preparing young Australians for work of the future

By Jan Owen and Rachel Mutch
Price: $35.91

The authors summarise research released by the Foundation for Young Australians in the following reports: New Work Order: Ensuring Young Australians Have Skills for the Future, Not the Past; How Are Young People Faring in the Transition from School to Work? Report Card 2015; and The New Basics: Big Data Reveals the Skills Young People Need for the New Work Order (www.fya.org.au). The authors discuss why and how young people face challenging pathways into work – with nearly one in three in Australia currently unemployed or underemployed – and require enterprise skills usable across multiple roles and occupations. They propose active steps to prepare young people to thrive in this New Work Order.
