Barriers and Opportunities for Employment and Education Pan-European Report Launch
The IARS International Institute is pleased to announce it's mid year CPD accredited conference titled "Young Carers Matter". It will be held on 23rd April 2018 (09.00 - 15.00) at Dulwich Library, 368 Lordship Lane, SE22 8NB.
Youth unemployment in Southwark and generally continues to be a key issue for young people, councils and employers alike. This is especially true for those young people from BAME communities and even more so for young people who are carers. There continues to be unequal opportunity of access to the labour market and education for young carers and this conference sets out to identify ways to reduce this inequality. Focusing on young carers from Southwark, one of the most marginalised groups in London, the conference will explore youth-led solutions to unemployment with the ultimate objective of brining barriers down and informing local policy and practice.
Bringing together young people, policy makers, practitioners, employers, researchers and academics, the conference will present cutting edge research and debate youth-led initiatives locally from in the borough and wider afield from across the EU. The conference proceedings will contribute to reforms required to better support young people into work, training and further education.
The conference is organised within the framework of the DCLG supported project "Young Carers Matter" and will draw from the findings of this project and the previous Erasmus+ KA2 funded Care to Work project that explored the needs, challenges and opportunities of young BAME carers in their transition to responsible adulthood and their fair access to employment, education and training. The conference will also inform the future Care to Entrepreneurship (C2E) project, funded under the Erasmus+ KA2 scheme which launches next month.
