Effective measures for school-to-work transition in the vocational education system : lessons from Australia to Korea /

by Jung, Tae-Hwa | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Misko, Josie | Kisun, Lee | Dawe, Susan.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2004Description: PDF.Summary: The importance of close connections between vocational education and training (VET) systems and industry is highlighted in this report. The report finds that any system of entry-level training, which aims to help students make a successful transition from school to work, must have support mechanisms and frameworks in place to enable accurate assessment of industry and labour market needs. From Australia's perspective, the Korean experience provides useful insights to improving school retention rates, and establishing formal pathways for VET students who are not undertaking apprenticeships and traineeships. From the Korean perspective, useful lessons include developing inter-sectoral linkages between industry and education, applying flexible teaching and training methods, implementing a national qualifications framework, and introducing apprenticeship-type arrangements.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

PDF.Online Access: Report | Support document Notes: Includes PDF link to "Creating learning spaces for refugees : the role of multicultural organisations in Australia —support document" by Beatriz Miralles-Lombardo ; Judith Miralles ; Barry Golding, pp. 30 ; "An Adult Literacy National Project report."--Cover. "Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations."--T.p. verso.Summary: Upon arrival in Australia, refugees are directed to various organisations, including multicultural community organisations. Multicultural community organisations are well recognised for helping refugees become self-reliant; what is not fully recognised, however, is the contribution these organisations make to the development of refugees’ learning. This study sought to examine the extent to which literacy and numeracy provision occurs in multicultural community organisations serving three particular refugee groups: those from Iraq, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Sudan. Given their diverse experiences, backgrounds and reasons for fleeing their homelands, refugees in Australia clearly have a range of different needs. The authors highlight that multicultural community organisations work to meet these needs by creating networks and relationships with refugees. The nature of these organisations, and the informal learning environment they provide, can help refugees to learn skills needed for life in Australia as well as build networks with other non-government and government organisations.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) 2010Description: 39 p. PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Helen Kimberley worked for the Research and Policy Centre from 2009-2017.Summary: One focus of the Australian Government's social inclusion agenda is to help people with a disability into work. For this to succeed, employers must be willing and able to productively employ people with a disability. The purpose of this study was to answer the question 'what would it take' to enable employers to employ people with a disability. Based on focus groups with select employers from small-to-medium enterprises, the research found that, while employers were quite positive about employing a person with a disability, they lacked confidence in dealing with disability employment issues.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
