SKOPE Policy Seminar by Dr Paul Cappon: Preparing English Young People for Work and Life, An International Perspective

Dr Cappon is a past president and CEO of the Canadian Council on Learning, and a past CEO of the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada. In 2014-15 Dr Cappon was invited by the UK Secretary of State for Education to become a Policy Fellow at the DfE and to undertake a review of policy and to formulate findings, conclusions and recommendations that could inform policy deliberations in the Department. Dr Cappon’s report was presented to the Secretary of State as a brief on 1 May 2015, and SKOPE is pleased to be able to publish this, under an Open Government Licence, as a SKOPE Policy Paper. This seminar marks the launch of the paper. The paper provides a panoramic, systemic overview of policies, structures and trends; identifies a range of strengths and weaknesses; and offers a number of recommendations about how support for improvement and reform might be marshalled and deployed. Its aim is not to provide a blueprint or roadmap, but rather to act as an aid for reflection by stakeholders in the English system. One of its key arguments is that the current balance between central government and localities needs to be re-thought, with greater stability at the centre and more opportunities for innovation and the sharing of good practice at the local, and with accountability arrangements that do not solely focus on the individual school. The talk will address some of the most important issues that the paper raises.

From 14:30 until 18:00

At St. Anne's College, Oxford

SKOPE Seminar¦Youth Unemployment: Can labour-market Intermediaries help?

Dr Andre Kraak: Labour-market intermediaries can make a significant contribution to the reduction of youth unemployment.They recognise that the demand for labour is not fixed. By reshaping the attributes and broader workplace skills of the young jobseeker, labour market intermediaries can help overcome employers’ reticence to employing first-time workers. Such interventions, although small in scale, may be more successful than larger public works schemes of government. The potential positive impact of such intermediaries is demonstrated with international examples.
