The World Of Work Case
1. The more young people (aged 14-19) that come into contact with employers while they are at school, the less likely they are to become NEET (not in education, employment or training) between 19 and 24 years.
2. Tackling Youth Unemployment – Work Ready Kids and Youth Friendly Employers
“Employability must be considered as an outcome of schools and young people should be exposed to a wide range of career options. This can only be achieved by schools and employers systematically working together to expose young people to the opportunities available across the modern economy”.
3. Help young people (especially the “at risk”) to become more workplace aware and better equipped to engage with employers.
Help companies to establish more “youth-friendly” pathways.

“The World of Work exhibit was instrumental to our junior career expo in explaining and illustrating the tricky subject of vocational pathway sectors to our youngest high school students.
Not only that, it was the centerpiece to our indoor zone: It was colourful, interesting, fun and engaging; provided volume, texture and curiosity to the space; allowed students and teachers to literally explore and navigate a ‘careers space’ that would otherwise have been awkward to fill, flat and disappointing.
Mark & Nell brought the kind of experience that steadied the setup and supported the smooth running of the event. Big thanks.”
