Study on support for young people and impactful transitions to work

In many ways, working life is currently undergoing a period of signifcant change. One key challenge involves adolescent transitions from childhood to adulthood. Some young people have a smooth transition to adulthood and working life and do not need special support. On the other hand, for others, the path to adulthood is difficult and without outside help there is a risk of exclusion from the labour market and thus from society. The challenge for young people’s employment and exclusion prevention is that the youth service system has become more fragmented, complicating the transitions of young people in their life career and into working life. The fragmentation of services is caused by the allocation of funding and resources on an administrative basis, while need-based funding does not allow for cross-sectional co-development through the preparation of administrative branches. The youth service system also seems to lack ownership and leadership as well as coordinating structures.The study produces information on the services of young people from a working life perspective. The aim is to produce information that can be used to promote multi-disciplinary services and service integration for young people. The information obtained in the study will be used in the development of the national service system. The study seeks specific answers to the following questions: 1. How do professional life-oriented services and multidisciplinary services models for young people take them into account as physical-psychicsocial entities, and how is this translated into service needs and service delivery? 2. How should we promote and support cross-service annonimity in the implementation of services and how is multidisciplinary seen in the work culture? Is there a difference in this between authorities or professions? 3. What structural, professional or other obstacles should be removed in order to achieve an impressive impact on the multidisciplinary work and the comprehensive encounter between young people and what is the best way to promote the transition to work?The research uses both qualitative and quantitative data and methods. Methods used include: data analysis, interview and survey studies, and statistical analyses based on URA data. The final conclusions of the work and development proposals are based on a comprehensive analysis of information compiled from different perspectives and different methods.
