Preparing for what? : the administration of Youth Allowance Activity Agreements to young job seekers : paper presented at the Australian Social Policy Conference, Sydney, July 2003. /

by Jope, Sally | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Beaumont, Rosie.

Publisher: Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2003Description: 12 p., [11 p.] : ill.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: July 2003 Paper presented to the Australian Social Policy Conference, Sydney, 9-11 July 2003. Includes presentation notes. 2 copiesSummary: Youth Allowance policy recognises that job search is not always the most appropriate activity for unemployed young people and further education, training and skill building can assist them into employment. Therefore, more flexible activity testing has been introduced to enable combinations of and movement between study and work. Preparing for Work Agreements (PFWA) are prepared in negotiation with the unemployed young person prior to payment of Youth Allowance. They are to include activities the job seeker is required to undertake to remain eligible for income support and what Centrelink will offer the job seeker to improve their chances of employment. This study investigated the administration of YA PFWAs by Centrelink and the extent to which they had been tailored to meet the individual needs of young job seekers (18-20 years). In-depth interviews were conducted with YA job seekers, with youth workers and with Centrelink officers. We found young people generally did not understand the purpose of PFWAs and did not know they could negotiate the activities included within them. Their agreements mainly contained job search activities few 'capacitybuilding' activities. We concluded that PFWAs might motivate young people to look for work but do not contribute to increased capacity to get work or developwork-related skills.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Governing the social : reconfiguring state and civil society relations. /

by Reddel, Tim | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne 2006Description: 20 p.Other title: Social policy working paper ; no. 6.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 17-20) November 2006 This paper is developed from a presentation at a symposium, `Governments and communities in partnership : the next steps', organised by the Brotherhood of St Laurence and the Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne, in May 2005.Summary: Tim Reddel argues that contemporary governance of social policies is characterised by shifting risks and responsibilities between sectors and interests and by a dominant neo-liberal agenda. He uses empirical research from place-based policy making and community strengthening initiatives in Queensland, together with a historical policy scan, to examine the policy trends. The paper highlights the limited conceptual and policy thinking underpinning the relationship between government and society, and questions the assumption that networks and partnerships are inherently democratic and participatory.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Paul Smyth, General Manager Research and Policy Centre Brotherhood of St Laurence (2003-2013) INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Paul Smyth argues that the concepts of social investment and human capital potentially provide key building blocks for a successful reintegration of economic and welfare policy in Australia. He surveys the history of the social investment state as it has moved out of the shadow of the postwar welfare state and finds hope in the recent National Reform Agenda s emphasis on addressing wider socioeconomic factors which inhibit participation and productivity.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
