I remember visiting my careers adviser once. I said to him I like drawing and he said "artist". That was the last time I saw him. My opinion is kids are not really given the core skills needed to get the job they want. How do you teach abstract things like motivation, self-esteem building, drive, perspective, opportunism, organisation, selling yourself or networking skills to kids? I'm just hoping they are given a better understanding of working life before they get out there and do it for real. *steps off soap box* If you have enjoyed this video in anyway, please give it a like and, if you think my channel is brilliant, subscribe and you'll get regular updates of what I'm putting up. Thank you kindly. :-)
The NSW Government will invest $10 million to help school leavers start their career through free pre-traineeship and pre-apprenticeship courses. Minister for Skills John Barilaro met with trainees at the Sydney Fish Market to announce the initiative that will provide a platform for more students to access training and include greater support for school leavers. “As the school year draws to a close, many students will be thinking about their next move and we want more students to consider a career in the trades, so this is a ‘try before you buy’ initiative,” Mr Barilaro said

There's a new warning hundreds of thousands of school-leavers face a fruitless search for work this summer, as the recession continues to take its toll on the jobs market.

Sky's Alistair Bunkall reports.

If you're a school leaver or parent of a school leaver, we've got everything you need to know about apprenticeships and traineeships. Apprenticeships and Traineeships are jobs where you learn skills as you work, undertake formal study with a training provider and get paid a training wage. Apprenticeships span across 3-4 years and lead to a trade based qualification. Traineeships are usually shorter and lead to an industry recognised Certificate. Visit our website for more information on how you can start an apprenticeship or traineeship with Skillset. http://www.skillset.com.au

http://www.nation.co.ke School leavers have been urged not to depend on white collar jobs but look for other ways to do business. Speaking during the thanks giving ceremony at Kapsoya Church of God, Mr. Bernard Silas who recently graduated from University of Nairobi said school leavers should use the knowledge and skills gained to venture into relevant projects. Mr Silas added, the act will avoid engaging themselves in evil habits that may make their education a waste. Bishop Bringo Amkuhuma of Kapsoya Church of God Eldoret said parents have shown laxity, a move that have largely contributed to an increase in number of youths engaging in bad behaviour.
Russian/Eng/Nat Today 17-year olds throughout Russia are celebrating the last day of classes. Under the Soviet system their future would already be assured - either a place at University or a guaranteed job. But with some 10 (m) million unemployed as a result of economic reform, the future for Russia's school-leavers today is not so bright. Saved by the bell. The sound of freedom is ringing in the ears of these Russian school children. The celebrations can begin with their school days finally over but an unknown future awaits. Today, they begin their search for a job or a place at college. Those who want to go to University face stiff competition and entrance exams, and those who want to work face long queues at the job centre. But it used to be a very diffe...

Entry level jobs are the easiest for school leavers to get into. The retail, hospitality and logistics industries are the more common areas offering on-the-job training. Some school leavers resort to self-employment if they are not successful in finding part time work. The most popular types are: starting a car wash, baby-sitting, dog-walking, window-cleaning and house-cleaning.
