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).

The community expects... : public opinion about breach penalties for unemployed people

by Ziguras, Stephen J | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Flowers, Charne.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2002Description: 12 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2002 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: Unemployed people who fail to comply with their activity test requirements are penalised by having their benefits reduced. Recent research has shown that the number of breaches has escalated dramatically since 1997 and that breaches are falling most heavily on the most disadvantaged job seekers. This study investigated whether the Australian public think the current levels of penalties for breaching are fair or not and what they think the penalties should be. This survey showed that the current penalty regime is not supported by the community, and that the public would support a reduction in breach penalties.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Blue collared : the shrinking world of work in Tasmania /

by Madden, Kelly | Anglicare Tasmania.

Publisher: Hobart, Tas. Anglicare Tasmania 2003Description: 95 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2003 Summary: The qualitative component of this research indicates that unemployed people had a strong preference for permanent employment, placing a very high value on the paid entitlements and sense of security. Many of the participants had extensive experience of casual work but this had not led to more permanent employment. This research indicates that the distinct categories of ‘unemployed’ and ‘casual worker’ which emerge from static accounts of the labour market would be much more accurately conceptualised as a cycle, with a sub-group of people moving between casual work and unemployment on a very regular basis.Availability: (1)
