Dave Turner said that the young and the most vulnerable are the ones who suffer most in any crisis. He has some powerful views on how we can work with young people to build back better from the pandemic.
He really is a quiet revolutionary and sets heads buzzing with ideas. He is returning to Perth and has agreed to run a workshop for us on Creating Youth Friendly Pathways – the need and tools at work and school to make it happen as we emerge from the pandemic.
Given the Department’s increasing focus on skills to transition from school, and increasing willingness of workplaces to support students to learn how to transition from school, it will be great to do the workshop with him to learn from his significant experience and ideas.
Dave Turner is an independent consultant in the related fields of youth work, education, industry / community partnerships, enterprise, vocational and careers education, and youth and community / economic development. Over the last 30 years Dave has divided his time between Australia and the United Kingdom. He has also spent considerable time living in Switzerland where he studied their world class apprenticeship system, of which he has now become a strong supporter.
In 2001, Dave developed the Four Pillars of Career and Transition Support concept for the British Government’s Connexions Program. This has provided a backdrop for his work in both nations over the last decade. He has worked with both Business in the Community and British Telecom, who together championed the Work Inspiration (WI) program in the UK.
Beginning in 2011, Dave has been heavily involved in introducing and developing the WI initiative in Australia and New Zealand - a work exposure and exploration project that has been led and resourced by employers (alone, or in a cluster). Its purpose is to re imagine work experience in Years 9-10. Over the last 18 months Dave has worked with Schools Industry Partnership, The Smith Family and Careers New Zealand to lead a series of master classes for employers, educators and brokers who are dedicated to developing WI.
