Graham, Lauren; Williams, Leilanie; Chisoro, Charity – Journal of Education and Work, 2019

Hodgson, Ann; Spours, Ken; Smith, David; Jeanes, Julia – Journal of Education and Work, 2019
Education providers and employers working together to prepare young people and adults for employment is internationally accepted as a key factor in effective technical and vocational education.

Mansuy, Michèle; Werquin, Patrick – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
For young people in the southern Mediterranean, labour market entry is long and difficult.

Orupabo, Julia – Journal of Education and Work, 2018
A key insight from studies of gender segregation is that the allocation of different groups to different positions in the labour market is strongly related to ascribed status. Shared gendered cultural beliefs generally portray men as more competent and of a higher status than women, and position some workers as more suited than others to perform…
