Sustainable Transitions

Sustainable Transitions to work require equity of access to quality education, work experience, and employment opportunities

Our research problematises employability and employment outcomes. We focus on higher education, labour market conditions, employer perspectives, changing industry requirements, and the broader policy environment.

Research in this theme centres on:

Equality of access to work and education

Quality education and work experience

 

This research aligns with the UN’s 4th Sustainable Development Goal: Ensure quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
