Young Adulllt Scotland

roc-home

Young-Adulllt is the acronym for the European Project Policies Supporting Young People in their Life Course. A Comparative Perspective of Lifelong Learning and Inclusion in Education and Work in Europe. The Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change at the School of Education of the University of Glasgow participates in this H2020 European Research project from a theoretical perspective and providing evidence for Scotland.

Current Lifelong Learning (LLL) policies for young adults in Europe aim both at creating economic growth and, at the same time, guaranteeing social inclusion. However, their distinct orientations and objectives as well as varying temporal horizons may create or exacerbate conflicts and ambiguities thus causing fragmentation, ineffectiveness and/or unintended effects for young people. Young-Adulllt aims at analysing the interaction and complementarity of LLL policies and policymaking with other sectorial policies as well as understanding the different ways in which LLL policies are socially embedded in specific regional and local contexts across Europe.

The project focuses the interplay of three different analytical levels and perspectives:

  1. At the individual level, Young-Adulllt enquires into how policies fit and potentially account for young adults’ perceptions and expectations, their informal/non-formal competences, thus enabling them to create subjective meaning and continuity along their life courses.
  2. At the structural level, Young-Adulllt investigates the socioeconomic and political conditions of the most effective policies and initiatives related to LLL, youth unemployment, and education & training for young people.
  3. At the institutional level, Young-Adulllt analyses the embedding of policies in the local and regional frameworks of education, training and labour markets with particular attention to actors and networks, dynamics, trends, (mis)matches and redundancies.
