Education and happiness in the school-to-work transition /

by Dockery, Alfred M | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | [Dockery, Alfred Michael].

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: 46 p.: ill. tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Education is generally seen as enhancing people's lives. However, previous research has reported an inverse relationship between education and happiness or satisfaction with life: as education level goes up, happiness goes down. Using data from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY), this report examines the relationship between education and happiness. The impact of factors such as family circumstances and personality traits are also considered. The report finds that undertaking vocational qualifications such as an apprenticeship has a positive impact on happiness both during the training period and after completion. For university graduates, however, happiness declines following completion of their study.Availability: (1)

Evaluation of the phase 2 raising the participation age trials - final report /

by Great Britain. Department for Education.

Publisher: Cheshire, U.K. Great Britain. Department for Education 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Great Britain. Department for Education. Research report ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The Education and Skills Act 2008 legislated to increase the age of compulsory participation in education or training to age 18 by 2015 and to the end of the year in which young people turn 17 in 2013. Young people will be able to participate in a way that suits them: for instance in full-time education at school or college, on an Apprenticeship, or part-time if they are also working or volunteering full-time. Achieving full participation of young people in education or training until age 18 will require all parts of the education system to play their part. Ultimately, however, it will be local authorities (LAs) that will be responsible for ensuring that young people in their areas participate and for providing the support young people need to overcome any barriers to learning.Availability: (1)
