This grant supported an applied research project to advance policy and practice on improving transitions to employment for youth and young adults. The report discusses current policies that encourage work-integrated learning in relation to the observed results, and provides practical advice about government policies to facilitate easier transitions from education to the labour market. It provides universities/colleges, their potential co-op partners, and policy leaders with evidence-based, expert-reviewed and actionable policy recommendations.
