New report: young adults' perceptions of the future of work
New report on young adults' perceptions of the future of work and their education and employment plans by Dr Brendan Churchill and Associate Professor Hernán Cuervo.
A new report on young adults' perceptions of the future of work has been released today. The report entitled 'Young Adults' Perceptions of the Future of Work: Examining their Education and Employment Plans was authored by Life Patterns Research Fellow and Project Manager Dr Brendan Churchill and Life Patterns Chief Investigator Associate Professor Hernán Cuervo.
Overview of the report
Amid the backdrop of rapid change and uncertainty, the focus of this report is how young adults make plans and what expectations they have in relation to their working futures and lifelong learning. This research report draws upon quantitative and qualitative data from Life Patterns, a mixed methods longitudinal panel study of Australian youth who left school in 2006. The findings for this research report are drawn from survey data collected in 2020 from participants of Cohort 2 in the Life Patterns project, who were aged 32 years in that year.
