23 SES 13 B, Youth on the Move – Transitions in Times of Uncertainty (Part 3))
Symposium: continued from 23 SES 11 B, 23 SES 12 B
In this presentation, the consequences of early school leaving on the later life of young people is analysed. The aim is to examine how exclusion from both education and work at the age of 16 – 18 (NEET-status) is connected to an individual’s later education, labour market career, socio-economic status and earnings. The presentation is based on a longitudinal study concerning Finnish youths who were unemployed and had not continued their schooling after completing lower secondary school in 1995 (n=7508). The life courses of these youths were followed up to and including the year 2007. According to the results, dropping out of education and working life immediately after completing lower secondary school strongly predicts a weak labour market position also in later life. While demand for unqualified, minimum-aged school leavers is continually declining, early school leaving increases the risk of social exclusion and implies a failure to make a key transition effectively. keywords: young people, school to work transition, early school leavers, longitudinal research
