    Call to Action

    Work with Youth Employability Aotearoa.

    Recognise employability is a lifelong journey – not an outcome.

    Act to ensure employability teaching connects with all students, is scaffolded, is informed by industry and maps the skills and attributes of young people.

    Recognise that how employability messaging is termed, driven and communicated will determine its educational priority. Take action to communicate its importance.

    Ensure learning and teaching practices and programmes are innovative, inclusive and diverse.
