StayOn: Kako javne in izobraževalne ustanove približati novim navadam in potrebam mladih?

14.06.2022

V okviru mednarodnega projekta StayOn smo v kratkem članku razmišljali, kaj bi šole, ustanove in javna uprava lahko spremenile, da bi se približale novim navadam in potrebam mladih. 

Članek z naslovom Schools, institutions, public administration. What should we change in order to create an environment closer to young people's new habits and needs? lahko v angleščini preberete v Youth Emplyment Magazine, na straneh 42-3 (odlomek iz začetka spodaj).

Še več zanimivih razmišljanj najdete tudi na spletni strani revije. Več o projektu, katerega namen je spodbuditi opolnomočenje mladih ter jim zagotoviti ustrezne spretnosti za trg dela, pa preberite tukaj. Spremljate ga lahko tudi na Facebooku ali Instagramu.

Projekt StayOn so-financira Norveški finančni mehanizem in Finančni mehanizem EGP 2014–2021.

Labour market trends and demands show the growing importance of soft or core skills, applicable to all professions. »Evidence from online job vacancy data reveals that communication, teamwork and organisational skills are among the transversal skills most frequently demanded by employers in a wide variety of occupations. Cognitive skills, such as analytical, problem-solving, digital, leadership and presentation skills are also highly transversal across jobs and work contexts.« (Source: The OECD Skills Outlook 2021 report) Additionally, flexibility, a positive attitude towards lifelong learning and curiosity are among the most vital skills future workers will require to remain competitive and to succeed, due to increases in life expectancy, rapid technological changes, globalisation, migration, environmental changes, digitalisation and other trends.
