Traineeship access programme proposal submitted to the Department of Education, Employment and Training. / by the Brotherhood of St. Laurence

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1987Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: September 1987 Summary: The Australian Traineeship System has been conceived as a substantial opportunity for young people seeking entry into the non-trades sector of the Australian Labour Market. For those who complete their training it is a qualification nationally recognised by employers and education bodies alike. For employers it formalises skill specific non-trades entry point training within economically rational parameters. However, when one looks to the critical needs area of employment disadvantaged young people within the target group, the present ATS guidelines makes only a passive provision for their access. While this may have been determined as appropriate during the time of the system's inception, it is strongly recommended that now is the time to change this to a pro-active approach. To delay further will make for long term difficulties in creating appropriate access opportunities for the group. Suitable and effective programmes should be being developed concomitantly with Traineeships taking a firm hold in the private sector. We are recommending two significant although not costly modifications to the Australian Traineeship System, and the adoption of a Pilot study into a further area we believe ultimately will have the potential of far greater outcomes. These modifications will not discount either the quality of ATS training or the status of the ATS qualification. However, applied strategically they will go far toward meeting access and affirmative action ends while at the same time alleviating employer concerns as to the risks inherent in employing otherwise disadvantaged young people Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Low income earners and food

by Hollingworth, Peter, 1935- | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: 1988Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The existence of deficient food and dietary patterns amongst low income Australians in the Bicentennial year is in itself a timely reminder that the problems of nutrition and ill-health are not simply the problems of over-abundance, over-eating and wrung dietary choices. Some 20 per cent of our national population have insufficient incomes which mean they cannot afford proper food and therefore do not possess the range of consumer choices as is commonly, but mistakenly, assumed. The poor spend 23.4 per cent of their low incomes on food, compared with 17.9 per cent for the top ten per cent of the income group and 19.7 per cent for the average of the total population. But it is also true that, for the poor, the payment of rent and fuel bills always takes precedence, so that, family food expenditure is frequently cut to cover those costs and the family is given high carbohydrate "fillers". Furthermore, many poor people do not possess the knowledge, skill, resources, time or ease of access to buy and cook food which is both cheap, enjoyable and nutritious. Care must therefore be taken to ensure that our new found enthusiasm for healthy food does not lead to victim blaming, nor the rehearsing of earlier arguments that the poor can survive well on "porridge and carrots".
