    Dear all,

    On Friday 26th November, 10am – 12noon GMT, we will be hosting a webinar where we will be launching policy briefs and showcasing how psychological science can contribute to 'striving for good youth work'. The event is part of the UK Economic and Social Research Council's Festival of Social Science and will be hosted on the EAWOP Impact Incubator's website. Policy briefs will then be discussed by Prof Anneleen Forrier (KU Leuven) and Dr Anthony Mann (OECD, Senior Policy Analyst – Education and Skills).

    We would love to see you at this online event. Please also share with your networks, too. We are looking to attract different stakeholders involved in youth employment, including but not limited to: young people, parents, education and training providers, careers advisors, employers, government representatives, policy makers, practitioners, representatives from the third sector and employers.
