Developing young people’s skills for work is a must, new UNESCO report urges

youthandskills-unescoYouth skills have never been so vital. One young person, aged 15-24, in eight across the world is looking for work. Youth populations are large and growing, especially in the urban areas of low-income countries. With one quarter of the world’s youth earning no more than $1.25 a day, un-skilled young people are being trapped in working poverty for life.

Launched on October 16, UNESCO’s 10th Education for All Global Monitoring Report, “Putting Education to Work”, could not be better timed. It looks in depth at youth skills, one of the least analyzed of the “Education for All” Goals set in 2000.
