The labour market integration of immigrants in Australia

by Liebig, Thomas | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2007Description: 63 p. (Online Resource).Online Access: Website Summary: The labour market integration of immigrants in Australia is shaped by the country’s long tradition as an immigration country and its selection policy. Over the post-war period, the main origin countries of immigration to Australia have shifted from English-speaking countries to other OECD countries, and, since the mid-1970s, to non-OECD countries. Parallel to this shift, immigration policy to Australia became increasingly skills focused, which has partly countered the less favourable employment outcomes of migrants from these countries. This increasing selection has resulted in a situation in which the skills structure of the immigrant population, particularly of those from non-OECD countries, is well above that of the native-born...Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Sims, Margaret | Guilfoyle, Andrew | Kulisa, Judy | Targowska, Anna | Teather, Susan.

Publisher: West Perth, W.A. Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth 2008Description: PDF.Notes: Family & early yearsSummary: "This paper reports on research (both primary research and a literature review), undertaken with the aim of demonstrating strategies for successful inclusion into Australian society of children and families from culturally and linguistically different (CaLD) backgrounds. We recognise that CaLD children and families are commonly disadvantaged through being part of a minority group in Australia, their experiences prior to migration (for example refugee trauma), the different values and practices they may encounter here, the difficulty of learning a new language, the problems they face having qualifications and experience ratified, and the varying forms of racism the may experience. A number of innovative and highly successful programmes operate in different areas of Australia that are very successful in supporting CaLD families." -- Summary. ; CULTURALLY AND LINGUISTICALLY DIVERSE (CALD)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Submission to the Legal and Social Issues Committee of the Victorian Parliament : inquiry into Early Childhood Engagement of CALD Communities

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2019Description: 37 p. : ill. PDF.Other title: Submission to the Inquiry into Early Childhood Engagement of CALD Communities.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: November 2019Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence (BSL) is pleased to contribute to this important Inquiry into the early childhood engagement of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities. This submission draws on our practical experience, along with our research and that of others, to identify what is working well, opportunities for change and future directions. At the outset, it is critical to note that Victoria has a very large CALD community. Migrants come to the state from a wide range of countries and cultures, and the 2016 Census shows that 26 per cent of Victorians speak a language other than English at home. This large group is made up of people and communities with diverse backgrounds and experiences – from those who are seeking asylum to skilled independent migrants. There are stark differences in education levels, English proficiency, health, socioeconomic circumstances and home environments – all of which affect a child’s future success. BSL’s work primarily focuses on supporting newly arrived communities of refugee and asylum seeker background, together with migrants experiencing intersecting forms of disadvantage. Accordingly, families from these communities are the focus of this submission. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Inquiry into early childhood engagement of culturally and linguistically diverse communities / Parliament of Victoria. Legislative Assembly Legal and Social Issues Committee

by Victoria. Parliament. Legislative Assembly Legal and Social Issues Committee | Suleyman, Natalie.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. : Victorian Government Printer, 2020Description: xxxviii, 384 p. : ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The introduction details the inquiry process, approach taken and context. It provides an overview of culturally diverse communities in Victoria, the early childhood policy context and the report’s guiding principles. Given the limited detail in the inquiry’s terms of reference, the Committee’s first priority was to establish the parameters of its investigations. The Committee agreed to define ‘early childhood’ as covering the period from birth to eight years, which is consistent with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s definition. The Committee employed a broad understanding of the term ‘engagement’ and the various ways that children can be engaged in early childhood services. Finally, the Committee acknowledged that the lives and experiences of people from culturally diverse backgrounds are unique to each other, and that they have different needs and cannot be treated as a homogenous group. The Committee agreed to focus predominately on people from refugee backgrounds as they typically require a high level of support when they arrive in Australia, in addition to other newly arrived groups from non‑main English‑speaking countries. The Committee used a variety of strategies to engage culturally diverse communities in the inquiry process, including an Easy English guide, translated brochures, an e‑survey in plain English, videos in other languages, and consultation workshops with multicultural playgroups. The Committee received 39 submissions and held nine days of public hearings in Melbourne and regional Victoria. Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Stronger starts, brighter futures : exploring trends in the early development of children from culturally and linguistally diverse backgrounds in Australia / Hussain Rajwani ; Ingrid Culos ; Tadgh McMahon (Settlement Services International)

by Rajwani, Hussain | Settlement Services International | Culos, Ingrid | McMahon, Tadgh.

Publisher: Ashfield, N.S.W. Settlement Services International 2021Description: 2 electronic texts ([60 p., 23 p.]) : ill. PDF.Online Access: Report | Appendices Summary: A stable environment and nurturing relationships with family, neighbours and communities are critical for childhood development and it is well established that the early years of a child's life can have lasting impacts throughout the life course. Consequently, improving childhood development tends to focus on early intervention in the pre-school years and adopts a public health approach to shift the development trajectory of the entire population of children towards the healthy end of the development continuum.
