Response to the stronger futures for all young Victorians : discussion paper on the youth transtions system / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Duizend, Emily.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: 28 P. PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback and recommendations to the DEECD/DIIRD discussion paper on the youth transitions system. The Brotherhood has taken a leading role in trialling innovative approaches that re-engage disadvantaged children and young people in learning and skill building that leads to successful transitions to work. As the Stronger futures for all young Victorians discussion paper details, a substantial range of reforms to education and vocational training are being implemented through Victorian and Commonwealth Government initiatives. This commitment to improve both the quality and capacity of learning for young people is very welcome. However, the Brotherhood believes that there is still a range of additional reforms required to both significantly improve completion rates and to enable stronger transitions through school and into work opportunities for all young people. Such reforms need to extend to young people throughout their school years and beyond. We note that the scope of this discussion paper is limited to the 15-24 age range. We are concerned that some issues related to successful transitions, including literacy and numeracy support and pathway planning, require attention earlier than the age of 15. A broader policy focus is required. In addition, we are concerned that, within the paper, there is little consideration of the distinctive needs of 'older' young people in the 19-24 age groups.Availability: (1)

The impact of wages on the probability of completing an apprenticeship or traineeship /

by Karmel, Tom | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Mlotkowski, Peter.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: National Centre for Vocational Education Research monograph.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 36 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Making use of the NCVER Apprentice and Trainee Destination Survey, this paper focuses on wages and the impact they have on the decision not to continue with an apprenticeship or traineeship. The broad conclusion is that increasing training wages would have little effect on completion rates. For apprentices, it is the premium associated with becoming a tradesperson that counts, not training wages. For females in non-trade traineeships, there is no relationship between wages and completion rates. It is only for males in non-trade traineeships for whom increasing training wages would make a difference to completion rates. However, for this group there is, on average, only a modest premium to completion. This finding raises the question of whether traineeships in some occupations, sales for example, are contributing to increased skill levels in any substantive manner.Availability: (1)
