Document Abstract

Reaching out to 'invisible' young people and adults: recovery and upskilling pathways for vulnerable groups (Briefing note)

Provides a briefing note giving an overview of outreach measures across Europe which aim to prevent the marginalisation of young people and adults. Discusses the recovery and upskilling pathways for vulnerable groups. Outlines that low qualifications, disengagement from education and training and long-term unemployment are interconnected phenomena and tend to cumulate throughout a person’s life. Notes that to prevent and combat the marginalisation of both young people and adults, national authorities across Europe have been developing measures to reach out to people in need however the nature and the extent of these services vary considerably from one country to another. Provides an evaluation of policies, caveats and ways forwards. Describes two cases studies from Denmark and Sweden.
