Guided by relevant international policy instruments, the course will provide operational references, insights and examples of good practice on what works for youth employment. More specifically, the course will be built around the following main modules:
- Global youth employment trends. This module will stimulate an exchange around the key findings of the ILO’s Global Employment Trends for Youth 2017 report.
- Policy options. This module will consider available policy measures to promote decent jobs for young people, sharing examples of good practice worldwide.
- The youth employment policy cycle. This module will look at the different stages of a policy cycle – from situational analysis to policy review - with special attention to some specific operational aspects that can affect policy implementation and final results.
- Pathways to a better future of work. This module will build on the outcomes of previous sessions and is expected to offer guidance on ways forward to facilitate youth access to labour markets and satisfactory employment.
