This White Paper sets out the Government's proposals to invest in education, skills and families in order to equip the UK to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by the global economy. Chapter 1 examines the new opportunities: the emergence of a global "middle class"; new production patterns enabled by technological change; new technologies creating new industries; increased personalisation of goods and services; increasing social mobility. Success in the global economy (chapter 2) will depend on building a world-class business infrastructure (including transport and communications), encouraging innovation and enterprise, and enhancing the skills of the workforce. The Government recognises the importance of child development in early years as crucial to children's subsequent lives, and chapter 3 outlines the proposals on improving the health and well being of children, providing more effective support to families and ensuring access to high-quality early learning and childcare. Education continues as the theme of chapter 4, setting out policies to deliver world class schools and teaching profession. The critical pathway from education to employment for 16-25 year olds is the subject of chapter 5. The Government believes that all those who have the desire and ability to study and train throughout their working lives should be able to access the support needed to raise their skill levels, and chapter 6 introduces new policies to ensure that people's potential to get on in work is supported. Strengthening family life (chapter 7) - through improving parental support, legislating to eradicate child poverty, helping families at risk - will help prevent the pressures of modern life from having a detrimental effect on individuals' life chances. The final chapter outlines a range of programmes to engage young people in community life and empower communities to respond locally to the problems they face.

This special report assesses the country's strengths and weaknesses and highlights the challenges and risks.

Transitions From Care to Independence

Transitions From Care to Independence Author Jennifer Driscoll

This important book focuses on the critical role of educational achievement for the wellbeing and success of vulnerable youth in adulthood. It is concerned with three interconnected issues: the support which is or should be afforded to youth ageing out of state care to enable them to fulfil their academic potential; the interdependence of social aspects of ‘care’ and educational attainment for children growing up in state care; and the conditions which are pre-requisite for transition to fully autonomous adulthood, together with the implications of these for the state’s responsibilities to care leavers. These issues are addressed through a review of international literature based on the educational outcomes and life-chances of youth graduating from state care, analysis of the findings of a three-year qualitative study following the educational transitions of young people, and the use of theoretical frameworks to explore the complexities of children’s experiences of the state care system. In doing so the book balances predominantly needs-based discourses with a children’s right perspective, focusing on competence rather than vulnerability and promoting the development of the skills needed for autonomous adulthood. Reconceptualising Transitions from Care to Independence should be considered essential reading for researchers, practitioners and policy makers in the fields of education, childhood studies and adoption and fostering services. Additionally, the issues addressed are of wider relevance to youth transitions to adulthood. Youth ageing out of care provide a particularly insightful case study into the broader cohort of young people entering the workforce in an era of a globalised economy and austerity.
