School to work SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: "This book - the finale in a trilogy by the authors - traces the way in which a number of disadvantaged schools and communities were able to move beyond deficit, victim-blaming and pathologizing approaches and access resources of trust, relationships, connectedness and hope. It describes how these Australian schools and communities were able to benefit from working with 'street-level' bureaucrats who had reinvented themselves around notions of socially just forms of capacity-building. The book provides a set of insights into what is possible from a critical engagement for school and community renewal perspective, by working with the resources that exist within disadvantaged contexts, even in damaging neoliberal policy times."--BOOK JACKET.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

by Kahn, Lauren | The Young Foundation | McNeil, Bethia | Patrick, Robert | Sellick, Vicki | Thompson, Kate | Walsh, Lucas.

Publisher: London, U.K. The Young Foundation 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: February 2012 Bibliography : p. 45Summary: This paper explores evidence for the importance of a greater emphasis on social and emotional learning, as part of a holistic view of young people's education. It: (1) looks to the trends in the field globally, and in Australia and South Australia specifically, highlighting the need for new approaches; (2) outlines evidence for how social and emotional competencies (SEED skills) improve outcomes both for individuals and for society and communities; (3) considers how these competencies can most effectively be nurtured to prepare young people for safe and successful transitions to work; (4) explores 12 examples from the UK, USA and Australia where young people are flourishing as a result of investment in social and emotional learning programmes. (Examples include: Stronger Smarter Institute, MindMatters, Darwen Aldridge Community Academy, Beyond Current Horizons, Enabling enterprise, Studio Schools, Mental Toughness Development). Concludes by considering how South Australia could create the five conditions which accelerate improvement in young people?s social and emotional competencies by building on much of the current good practice, providing better measuring tools, new professional development opportunities and wider accountability for outcomes.Availability: (1)
