A literature review of school practices to overcome school failure /

by Faubert, Brenton | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: 2012Description: PDF.Other title: OECD Economics Department. Working paper ; no. 68.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2012 Bibliography : p. 27-30Summary: This working paper was prepared as part of the OECD thematic review Overcoming School Failure: Policies that Work, www.oecd.org/edu/equity. The project provides evidence on the policies that are effective to reduce school failure by improving low attainment and reducing dropout, and proactively supports countries in promoting reform. The project builds on the conceptual framework developed in the OECD?s No More Failures: Ten Steps to Equity in Education (2007). Austria, Canada (Manitoba, Ontario, Qu bec and Yukon), Czech Republic, France, Greece, Ireland, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden took part in this project. This working paper is part of a series of papers prepared for the thematic review Overcoming School Failure: Policies that Work covering the topics of policies to reduce dropout and in-school practices to reduce school failure. These report have been used as background material for the final comparative report Equity and Quality in Education: Supporting Disadvantaged Schools and Students (OECD, 2012), which gives evidence on the policy levers that can help overcome school failure and reduce inequities in OECD education systems. It focuses on the reasons why investing in overcoming school failure -early and up to upper secondary- pays off, on alternatives to specific system level policies that are currently hindering equity, and on the actions to be taken at school level, in particular in low performing disadvantaged schools.Availability: (1)

A path to re-engagement : evaluating the first year of a Community VCAL education program for young people

by Myconos, George | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: viii, 47 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF | Summary Notes: Includes "A path to re-engagement : evaluating the first year of a Community VCAL education program for young people : research summary."Summary: In Frankston, the Brotherhood of St Laurence has developed a Community VCAL program tailored for young people aged 15 to 18 who have experienced barriers to mainstream education. Students undertake the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning - a Years 11 and 12 course which combines classroom tuition with vocational training and work placements - in a community setting rather than in a school. The evaluation of the inaugural year found that, notwithstanding some challenges, the program made a significant difference to the educational opportunities of most of its students. ; VICTORIAN CERTIFICATE OF APPLIED LEARNING (VCAL)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A response to the DEECD directions paper : pathways to re-engagement through flexible learning options. / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Myconos, George.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: 23 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence response to Flexible learning options Directions Paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The government's commitment to improve both the quality and capacity of learning for young people is very welcome. However, the Brotherhood believes a range of additional reforms to current youth support services that go beyond the classroom are still required to significantly improve completion rates and enable a smooth transition to work opportunities. The Brotherhood believes that high quality education occurs in many forms and in many settings. While acknowledging that retention within the mainstream educational setting is the ideal pathway, there is a need to sustain programs educating young Australians beyond the mainstream school setting. The Brotherhood's position on flexible learning options, and on appropriate responses to disengagement from education, is informed by a growing awareness of the value of 'adult' and 'hands-on' learning principles. It is also informed by its experience of successful programs, and its knowledge of the challenges facing providers of flexible learning options, and those faced by young people and families experiencing hardship.Availability: (1)

Approaches to supporting young people not in education, employment or training : a review /

by Nelson, Julie | National Foundation for Educational Research | O'Donnell, Lisa.

Publisher: Slough, Berkshire U.K. National Foundation for Educational Research 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: This review forms one of a suite of four literature reviews that have been completed under the From Education to Employment theme. These reviews collectively identify strategies for assisting young people at risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training) to make effective transitions into learning or employment post 16. In 2011 one in five (22.3 per cent) young people aged 16-24 were unemployed (a total of 1.04 million). A slightly lower, but still large, proportion (19.2 per cent) of young people aged 16-24 were NEET. All four reviews build upon a large body of research on the reasons why young people are NEET, and on recent NFER research, which presented a 'segmentation' analysis identifying three discrete sub-categories of NEET young people aged 16-17Availability: (1)

At risk youth : a transitory state? /

by Anlezark, Alison | National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2011 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: By definition, youth transitions involve young people moving between school, post-school study and employment. It is a time of flux, as young people try out different school, post-school work and study options. But are those who don't find work immediately likely to make a poor transition? Given that many may well have a spell out of the labour force, we need to understand when this becomes a risk factor. This briefing paper draws on related research and some primary data analysis to consider whether being 'at risk' is a permanent or transitory state. It suggests that, rather than counting the numbers of young people who are detached from work, study or other meaningful activities, we should focus on those who remain disconnected.Availability: (1)
