Jobs for Youth/Des Emplois pour les Jeunes:
Improving the performance of youth on the labour market is a crucial challenge in OECD countries facing persistent youth unemployment. The labour market is becoming more and more selective and the lack of relevant skills brings a higher risk of unemployment.
Whatever the level of diploma, first experiences on the labour market have a profound influence on later working life. Getting off to a good start facilitates integration, while a failure can be difficult to make up.
Efforts will require co-coordinated policies to bring education system closer to the labour market, to help disadvantaged young people to find a job or participate in a training course and to facilitate the hiring of young people by firms.
OECD has launched a series of reports in 15 countries including the Slovak Republic. Each report contains a survey of the main barriers to employment for young people, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to improve the transition from school to work.
This report is based on the proceedings of a seminar and is published in English and Slovak. However, a French version of the Summary and Recommendations has been included in this volume.
