COMET Auckland in partnership with the Auckland Chamber of Commerce held anAuckland Forum on Youth Employability in November 2013. Employers report that young people are not work ready. The Forum was an opportunity to bring together expertise from multiple players to identify one to two clear employer-led actions that will contribute to youth employability and skills in Auckland, and to build cross-sector support for implementation of these actions.This discussion document provides background information for the Forum, summarising important issues and themes gathered from a series of conversations about employability with 70 young people and 18employers during August 2013.
