All things being equal? Equality and diversity in careers education, information, advice and guidance /

by Hutchinson, Jo | University of Derby | Rolfe, Heather | Moore, Nicki.

Publisher: Manchester, U.K. Equality and Human Rights Commission 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Equality and Human Rights Commission Research report ; no. 71.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 119-130 Appendices pp. 131-151 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In its education chapter, the Commission's first Triennial Review of evidence on inequality, How Fair is Britain's Equality, Human Rights and Good Relations in 2010, found that educational attainment has been transformed in recent years. Around half of young people are now getting good qualifications at 16 (5+ A-C GCSEs or equivalent including English and Maths) and, in 2008/09, 2.4 million students enrolled in higher education in the UK - a considerable change from a time when educational opportunities were only available to a minority of young people. However, the evidence shows that educational attainment continues to be strongly associated with socio-economic background. Stereotypical information and guidance can limit young people's options and aspirations at an early age. Careers advice often reinforces traditional choices and young people have limited information on the pay advantages of nontraditional routes. Nearly one in four young people say that they have not had enough information to make choices for their future. This rises to just under a quarter of disabled young people.Availability: (1)

Career and Transition Support (CATS) for refugees : workshop handbook 2013 /

by SELLEN (South East Local Learning and Employment Network) | Youth Connect | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Dandenong, Vic. South East Local Learning and Employment Network (Melbourne, Vic.) 2013; Moorabbin, Vic. : Youth Connect, 2013Description: 53 p. ill. PDF.Other title: CATS workshop handbook 2013 for refugees | CATS for Refugees.Summary: Making decisions about career transition can be a confusing time for young people. One of the responsibilities that youth workers, social workers, homework club tutors, Multicultural Education Aides and Community Leaders might assume, in the process of assisting young people, is support with decision making about education, career planning and transition. If young people are to have access to the full range of post-school training and employment options, they need to be able to identify them. Whilst schools provide careers education and counselling, they have limited resources to cater for large numbers of students and many are not able to provide the intensive support that young people of refugee background require. It’s widely recognised that many refugees cannot rely on their parents or carers to offer careers advice and transition support. Many of their parents are not literate and/or haven’t attained sufficient education or knowledge of the Australian employment sector to provide this and, in some cases, the refugees are unaccompanied minors. Many young people of refugee background have had severely disrupted education and spent years in refugee camps. Some were born in them. Many have had limited exposure to jobs and career options in a modern industrialised economy and most students of refugee background and their parents have little knowledge of the full array of vocational opportunities that exist in Australia and the pathways available to realise them. As a result, these students have special needs when it comes to careers education but most currently rely solely on the careers advice and support provided in the classroom of their secondary school where an ESL student’s ability to take in information provided in mainstream classes may be limited. These students usually need more intensive support than the school careers coordinator may be resourced to provide. Young people of refugee background who are disengaged from school don’t have access to school based careers information, resources and counselling. These young people have no access to independent careers and transitions support and advice. The CATS (Career and Transition Support) for Refugees workshops were developed to bring youth workers, social workers, Multicultural Education Aides, homework club tutors and community leaders up to date with practical strategies and information about careers and transitions. They aim to provide you with general career transition knowledge, resources and ongoing support so that you can help young people access information about education, training, employment and career transition, so they can make informed career decisions based on fact. ; CATS for Refugees is an initiative of the South East Local Learning and Employment Network (SELLEN). The CATS 2012 Handbook was developed by the South East Local Learning and Employment Network and Youth Connect and is a modified version of Parents as Career and Transition Support (PACTS) developed by the Brotherhood of St Laurence.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Career and Transition Support [CATS] : workshop handbook 2012 : for community service workers /

by SELLEN (South East Local Learning and Employment Network) | Youth Connect | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Dandenong, Vic. South East Local Learning and Employment Network (Melbourne, Vic.) 2012; Moorabbin, Vic. Youth Connect, 2012Description: 52 p. : ill. PDF.Other title: CATS workshop handbook 2012 for community service workers | CATS 2012 Handbook.Summary: Making decisions about career transition can be a confusing time for young people. One of the responsibilities that youth workers, carers and social workers might assume in the process of assisting young people, is support with decision making about education, career planning and transition. If young people are to have access to the full range of post-school training and employment options, they need to be able to identify them. Whilst schools provide careers education and counseling, they have limited resources and time to cater for large numbers of students and many are not able to provide the intensive support that young people who reside in Out of Home Care (OoHC) need. The circumstances and background of children in out-of-home care mean that they are likely to need additional assistance to gain knowledge of educational and employment opportunities. If more of the people around them have knowledge of these opportunities, they are more likely to be equipped with the knowledge to gain employment and effective participation in community life. Since these young people are only permitted limited interaction with their parents, they currently rely solely on the advice of a school’s careers office and, in the main, careers support and guidance is not traditionally provided by most schools until Year 10. Students in Out of Home Care usually need more intensive support than the school careers coordinator may be resourced to provide. It is not uncommon for these young people to be disengaged from school and in these cases they don’t have access to any schools based careers information. Community workers who engage with these young people might not have been at school themselves for many years and with an ever changing school system increasing and developing these workers’ knowledge is vital for the benefit of these young people. The CATS (Career and Transition Support) for Community Service Workers was developed to bring youth workers, social workers, Carers up to date with practical strategies and information about careers and transitions. It aims to provide you with general career transition knowledge, resources and ongoing support so that you can help young people access information about education, training, employment and career transition, so they will be able to make informed career decisions based on fact. ; Last update July 2020 Youth ConnectAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
