In April 2022, NICEC Fellow, Dr Fiona Christie jointly published a timely piece of research, "The impact of Covid-19 on Young Workers in England: Young people navigating insecure work in Greater Manchester during the Covid-19 pandemic."
This expediently timed report highlighted the voice of young people navigating insecure work at a time of severe labour market disruption. The findings and views of young people are an insight into how some of those most in need of good Careers Guidance find the current system of provision hard to understand and failing to assist them to find secure work.
Dr Christie has summarised the report in an article for the Career Guidance and Social Justice site. The findings also add the body of work that advocates for a more interventionalist, substantive and comprehensive Career Guidance offer that can reach those at the greatest distance from the positive value of rewarding work.
Dr Christie will be sharing findings from the research at a hybrid event on Thursday 8th September 2022. Please register to attend this event, hosted by the Manchester Metropolitan University Business School here.
