Consultant Achieve Baseline (School to Work Transitions Survey)

Background

Save the Children International Thailand aims to contribute toward ensuring that the most vulnerable adolescents have access to the knowledge and skills needed to transition into adulthood as a strategic priority from 2019 to 2021. SCI Thailand and ACTED are implementing the USAID Achieve project which will focus on supporting the most vulnerable adolescents in the southern border provinces of Thailand.

USAID Achieve will build local vocational training providers’ capacities to support vulnerable youth in Thailand’s Deep South increasing their skills, knowledge and experience necessary for improved economic opportunity. In this way, it will address a key conflict driver and offer young people a way out of the cycle of criminality and violence. By integrating a people-to-people approach at all levels of project management and activities, USAID Achieve will foster mutual understanding, trust and concrete cooperation between youth and between key people and government.

The USAID Achieve baseline may take the form, or adopt some components of, a School to Work Transitions survey. The School to Work Transitions Survey is an instrument commonly used by the International Labor Organization that generates relevant labor market information on young people aged 15 to 29 years, including longitudinal information on transitions within the labor market. The SWTS thus serves as a unique tool for demonstrating the increasingly tentative and indirect paths to decent and productive employment that today’s young men and women are facing in the context of the Southern Border Provinces of Thailand.

The objectives of the baseline survey include:

  • Detect the individual characteristics of young people that determine labor market disadvantage
