The following study presents new evidence from employer and household surveys on the role of socioemotional skills, as well as more traditional cognitive and technical skills, in the Philippine labor market. The Philippines is still at an early stage in terms of its ability to measure and develop socioemotional skills. Studies suggest that primary school is the optimal age for shaping socioemotional skills, but the elementary education curriculum devotes limited resources to their development. Developing those should be a priority. Finally, interventions targeting workers entering the labor force can also effectively bolster their socioemotional skills, complementing effects to improve labor-market information and vocational counseling.
Related to this, and becoming more and more pertinent in increasingly competitive work environments, they also need active citizenship skills that enable them to be equal partners and decision-makers in the work environment, where their views and ideas also matter in the decisions of the work place — including in relation to how they work, the hours they work, and the wages they receive.
How well do governments and industry support young people to obtain these skills? On the other hand, how do workplaces adapt to a dynamic young work force with their own ideas and opinions about work cultures and work ethics, who want to engage positively with management, and provide ideas for organisational decisions?
Are organisations ready to listen? This workshop will explore the 21st Century Skill requirements in the modern world of work, and the relevance of existing skills training to young people acquiring necessary skills to engage in the modern job market.
It will also examine the ways in which employees work with young people as equal partners in decisions that shape the world of work. How are workplaces and industry designed to involve young people as equal partners, and engage with them on their interests and employment and other aspirations?

Entrepreneurship is proven to be an effective way to expand employment and income opportunities for youth, particularly in developing countries.

Young entrepreneurs are a heterogeneous group and need a tailored combination of training, mentoring, and access to funding to spur their growth. An enabling regulatory environment and access to finance are key factors affecting youth to become social innovators and social entrepreneurs. However, it is only a small portion of youth entrepreneurs who tend to succeed in relation to making profits and creating jobs going beyond mere subsistence. Taking this dichotomy into consideration, this workshop will consist of a guided conversation with panellists focused on experiences and evidence that can influence or drive changes in policy, programmes, systems, cultural mindset and environment to better enable opportunities for youth to access entrepreneurship.
It will explore the concrete constraints or enablers youth face within the country context and systems to pursue and maintain entrepreneurship. The workshop will also reflect on support systems strengthening and systems change needed to achieve large-scale results for young people including for example girls, young people with disabilities, and communities from ethnic minorities.
