Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three reports that we found interesting this week:
The most common disruption reported by participants as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic was a delay in or cancellation of their work placement (35%). Just over one-quarter (26%) reported that some of their courses were postponed or cancelled by their institutions, including course work such as labs, applied learning and hands-on instruction that cannot be delivered online.

Respondents indicated that a full return to in-person classes was not a possibility, which is consistent with early announcements from institutions. At the same time, few respondents anticipated that classes would be cancelled or postponed. In other words, most respondents were in agreement that the school year will go ahead, but the experience will be very different.
The future of work presents a number of opportunities and challenges that require common solutions achieved through social dialogue. Drawing on case studies from around the world, this thematic brief illustrates how social dialogue can play a key role in managing the future of work transitions, improving the quality of work and achieving decent work for all.
