The journey to employment: a guide to understanding and measuring what matters for young people
AuthorsJohn Copps and Dawn Plimmer
This report helps organisations that work with young people understand and measure the impact they have on the journey to employment. Based on evidence from the literature and insights from consultation with experts, we have identified seven groups of factors that contribute to successful job outcomes: personal circumstances; emotional capabilities; attitudes to work; employability skills; qualifications, education and training; experience and involvement; and career management skills.
The JET framework presents these key factors that influence young peoples’ journey to employment. The framework can be used by charities to help think through how their work contributes to young people’s employability, and plan approaches to evaluation.
