Second chance programmes: what works to improve young people’s education re-engagement and transitions to work?

Active labour market policies are the most visible face of the action that governments have taken to combat persistent youth unemployment, which has been aggravated by the crises of 2008 and 2020. This action includes second chance programmes, which focus on improving comprehensive training to improve educational return and transitions to work for young people and are particularly important in a labour market marked by intensified competition. This review of the evidence collects
new data on second chance programmes and their impacts, on which ones seem to be more effective and on the factors of success that should be considered in future programmes.
