School-to-work transitions: recognising diversity and inequality
This study examines changes in the sequencing and timing of school-to-work transitions in two cohorts born in the 1980s, and moving into adult roles just before and after the turn of the century. It challenges dualistic assumptions dominating current policy debates, which focus on either smooth or problematic transitions, and calls for improving vocational-oriented transition pathways between school and work.
