The toolbox is directed to individuals, organisations, and institutions active in promoting youth employment. It introduces some of the most effective Employment Services and illustrates each one with examples of good practice (Case Studies). The toolbox combines theoretical concepts with practical implementation expertise. It is a source of information and inspiration for practitioners and policy-makers around the globe. As a dynamic instrument, the toolbox is designed for continuous update and modification. A basic version will be completed by May 2018.

Employment Services

Employment Services intermediate between the demand side (employers) and the supply side (job-seekers) of the labour market. They can focus on either one or contribute to more than one of the overall objectives of job orientation, preparation and matching. Employment Services are designed to support the employability and career prospects of young people and to help employers recruit motivated and qualified staff.

Cross-Cutting Topics

Cross-Cutting Topics such as labour market information or monitoring and evaluation are relevant to guarantee successful employment services. Besides providing good practices and implementation know-how for specific employment services such as job fairs, the toolbox therefore also tackles cross-cutting topics that enable practitioners and policy makers to design effective and inclusive employment services. The toolbox elaborates for instance on key success factors for public private partnerships in implementing employment services. Furthermore it provides insights on instruments such as digital solutions for job orientation, preparation or matching.
