The impact of VET in Schools on the intentions and achievements of young people /

by Nguyen, Nhi | National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth. Briefing paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2010 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This briefing paper assesses the effect VET in Schools programs have on school retention, post-school vocational education and training (VET) and employment, and on young people's school and post-school aspirations. VET in Schools programs are seen as a way to increase Year 12 retention through broadening subject choices in the school curriculum. Research based on the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth suggest that, while participation in these programs has positive effects on attitudes to and satisfaction with school, it does not necessarily lead to increased Year 12 retention. However, participation in VET in Schools can influence a small group of students, who are intent on getting a job straight after school, to change their post-school plans to include further VET study or an apprenticeship or traineeship.Availability: (1)

The impact of wages and the likelihood of employment 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 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 35Summary: This paper updates an earlier paper by Karmel and Mlotkowski and looks at how the probability of getting a job, in addition to wages, impacts on completion rates. It finds that for trade apprentices the premium (or extra wage completing an apprenticeship brings) attached to becoming a tradesperson is a significant factor, whereas for non-trade trainees the training wage matters more. It also finds that the probability of employment for an apprentice or trainee on completion is greater than if they drop out; this particularly affects completion rates for trades and females in non-trade occupations. Finally, the economic downturn significantly increased the attractiveness of apprenticeships and traineeships.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)

Training for work : insights from students and trainees at the Brotherhood of St Laurence /

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: viii, 36 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 2010 Bibliography : p. 36 Summary: The Training for Work study analysed the characteristics of participants in training programs run by the Brotherhood of St Laurence and explored the factors that helped or hindered the successful completion of training and the transition into paid employment. The study found that for many trainees, a certificate or qualification is not sufficient to enable them to get and keep a job: support and mentoring are essential.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Turning 18 : pathways and plans

by Taylor, Janet | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Gee, Nina.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Life Chances Study stage 9.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Life Chances Study has followed some 140 young people from diverse backgrounds since they were infants. In 2008 they turned 18: many finished school, while others were already launched into the world beyond. This Stage 9 report examines their Year 12 completion and their ENTER scores, and also provides important glimpses into the lives of young Australians at a key point of transition, from school to university, TAFE, apprenticeships, work and, for some, unemployment. The report considers some implications for the social inclusion policy agenda.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Understanding the psychological contract in apprenticeships and traineeships to improve retention /

by Smith, Erica | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Walker, Arlene | Kemmis, Ros Brennan.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: This research examines the 'psychological contract' or the unwritten expectations of employers and employees in an employment relationship. The particular aim of this study was to discover whether mismatched expectations have any effect on retention in apprenticeships and traineeships. Overall, there was a very high level of agreement on the obligations of the two major parties and so mismatched expectations turn out not to be the explanation for high attrition rates. But paying greater attention to the areas perceived as deficient, such as employers providing specific time for training, fair treatment and resources to do the job, may be a means of improving retention.Availability: (1)

Which paths work for which young people? /

Research Report ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : pp. 31 Appendices : pp. 32-55 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In this paper, the authors identify various educational paths involving school and post-school study and assess the effectivness of these in relation to post-school outcomes at age 25 years. They use the 1995 cohort of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth and find that, for males, undertaking an apprenticeship after completing senior secondary and university are attractive paths. For females, the best path is that of university study, even for those with low academic orientation.Availability: (1)

Year 12 completion and youth transitions /

by Ryan, Chris | National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth. Research report ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : pp. 38-39 Appendices : pp. 40-47 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: On average, young people who complete Year 12 tend to have more successful transitions from education to work than those who do not. However, in recent years there has been a realisation that it does not make much sense to promote Year 12 retention for its own sake. In this paper, Ryan investigates labour market outcomes for a range of different pathways undertaken by young people. He uses the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) to show that completion of senior secondary schooling provides the best labour market outcomes, relative to other vocational education paths.Availability: (1)
