Bridging the culture clash between Employers, Young people and local cultures
from 01:00 am to 05:30 am
The conference will stars with an informal lunch and networking, and will hear from examples of relevant work in the UK, the Netherlands, Austria and Iceland . Presentations will include those from:
- Illias El Hadioui of Erasmus University is a published author from the Netherlands who has written and spoken extensively on the relationship – and the mismatch - between the ‘street culture’ of young people and the norms of school and college culture. He will present a theoretical framework that he has developed to describe this manifestation and highlight the experience of urban youth in large multi-ethnic urban conurbations in the Netherlands.
- Steve Rawlings of Building Lives Training Academies in East London has developed a number of successful apprenticeships in the construction industry, which have been featured in the Evening Standard. He will present a number of case studies and talk about working to bring young people and employers together.
