This paper attempts to provide an international perspective on young people's transition from education to work in Australia. It draws on the Organisation for Economic Co- operation and Development (OECD) review of the education-to-work transition process in Member countries, on which the author worked from 1996 to mid- 1998. The first part of the paper provides some background on the OECD review. In the second part, transition structures, processes and outcomes are described in comparative terms, and strengths and weaknesses of the Australian approach are discussed.
