But even though you might not have recent work experience, you have plenty of life experience and as a result, plenty of skills which will help you in the workplace. these skills can really enhance your CV or resume and prove to employers that you have the skills needed for the job.
This video from Southwark Council uses school leavers Pat and Kevin to demonstrate the council's plans for combating the 40% unemployment rate in the borough. Pat and Kevin reflect on the difficulty of finding work and on the effect of unemployment on the borough. The council argues that the private sector has not invested in Southwark. Therefore, the council plans to provide 6,000 jobs in the public sector in areas such as road and building maintenance, education, public transport, parks, and healthcare. The video shows that through this scheme, Pat and Kevin could get jobs in the public sector that would give them the skills and experience to find a job in the private sector.

Read the full article here: http://bit.ly/1F3ZxEV If you want to join a school leaver programme you’ll need to make some career decisions now. How specialised is a higher apprenticeship or sponsored degree programme? And what if you change your mind in a few years’ time? On average, school leaver programmes are more focused on training you up for a specific career than degree programmes. However, there are some very specialised degrees (eg computer games development) and some school leaver programmes that include studying for some quite broad qualifications (such as the BA in management and leadership offered by Barclays on its sponsored degree programme). Even at the same employer, you might find that some programmes are more targeted than others at preparing you for one specific job....

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
In early 2012 the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, research and Tertiary Education in partnership with the Deparment of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations developed a pilot project for the dedicated delivery of the Language, Literacy and Numeracy Program (LLNP) for early school leavers in Job Services Australia. Joblink Plus worked closely with the New England Institute of TAFE to deliver this pilot in Tamworth, NSW.

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.
The Teachers Service Commission has today begun hiring 8, 000 teachers in a bid to support a new Government policy where all primary school leavers get enrolled into secondary schools.
