Abstract

This study investigates 82 Scottish secondary school pupils’ views on and expectations about decent work.

• The majority expect to get decent work when they leave school
• Participants view decent jobs as jobs that will allow them to live comfortably and be financially independent
• Good bosses and friendly colleagues are valued
• Young people identify the importance of equality and fair treatment in the workplace, and expect they will experience this when they start working
• Most are confident they will get in-work training
• A substantial number of young people believe their future jobs will be valued and worthwhile
• Young people believe they should be protected from exploitative and unsafe work
