The Work, Information, Skills and Education Nexus in the Transition from School to Work

This brief summarises the theoretical chapters in the book on Youth Transition from School to Work: A Case Study of VETA in Tanzania whose aim is to increase understanding about the barriers to youth employment and transition to work in the context of Tanzania’s new industrialization drive. The brief concentrates on key factors that influence youth transition from school to work, mainly the way they are prepared for the world of work, graduate expectations vis a-vis the real situation on the labour market and the interface between work, information, skills and education.
