Care leavers’ social exclusion experiences during employment course
This research was designed to explore care leavers’ employment course; understand care leavers’ experience of social exclusion and the solution. This qualitative research targeted the nine care leavers at the age of 20 to 31, who were from dysfunctional families. Also, the qualitative data was conducted the in-depth interview. The results are as follows: I. The placement and social exclusion: Undesigned placement services don’t meet care leavers’ needs in research. For example, the care leavers lack information about career counseling; therefore, they may feel frustrated and often change jobs. They should gain a fresh prospective on career and figure out where they want to go in the future. II. Transition and social exclusion: If care leavers don’t know they are not well prepared for work, they will just focus on clothing and feeding rather than self-achievement. Moreover, they will suffer much pressure in life and lifestyle becomes a vicious circle. They will always worry about financial problems. III. The labor market and social exclusion: Once care leavers step into the work places, they will suffer pressure from any aspects of social exclusion such as labor market, education opportunities, employment policy, family resources and individuals. IV. The policy of against social exclusion: All care leavers need to do is to be independent. Moreover, they can seek assistance outside, but these resources and connection are not clear for them. According to the findings of the research, the researcher made a suggestion to the government and employers respectively. The new direction for the government was that proposing a complete policy which expected to have well welfare for care leavers, to advocate private enterprises to generate jobs, and to protect their rights at work. On the other hand, it is necessary to break employers’ stereotypes of care leavers and to carry out the mentor system. Therefore, we really hope the public open mind to care leavers and cooperate to create a more work-friendly space for them.
