16/01/2020 - What kinds of careers do boys and girls expect for themselves? And to what extent do their aspirations align with a fast changing job market at growing risk of automation?
A new OECD report, Dream Jobs? Teenagers’ Career Aspirations and the Future of Work, features new analysis from PISA on these issues and examines how the mismatch between the aspirations of young people and the future of work will impact the world economy. It also includes recommendations of ways in which employers and governments can act.
The report will be released at 09.00 CET/08.00 GMT on Wednesday 22 January.
Andreas Schleicher, OECD Director for Education and Skills, will present the report’s findings at a World Economic Forum event in Davos at 11.00 the same day at the Davos Secondary School, Schulhaus Davos Platz. To register, journalists should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
