The Advisory Panel, joined by one representative of the project's 2022 Youth Advisory Group, discussed the following topics:

  • their views on how young people have approached careers guidance over the last year,

  • and predictions on future trends in the labour market. 

The YLYF project team presented preliminary findings from the first wave of the project survey, and requested feedback on a draft of the second wave of the project survey.
