Humanitarian migrants have the highest unemployment rate of all the migration categories. This is especially crucial, given that a significant proportion of refugees and humanitarian entrants are young people.
It is critical that the right level of support is available and that appropriate systems are in place to facilitate young people's transition into Australia.
The purpose of this report is to guide the development of future programs including those supported by philanthropy. The report reviews the recent data and literature to take stock of the current experiences of refugee young people in education and in their transition from education to employment. It also explored 'what works' in assisting young people to navigate a pathway between education and employment.
