'For all our children' : report of the independent inquiry into the provision of universal access to high quality preschool education /

by Walker, Kathy | Australian Education Union.

Publisher: Southbank, Vic. Australian Education Union 2004Description: 74 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 65 Includes appendicesSummary: As a relatively wealthy country, Australia is one of the four lowest spending of 36 countries on preschool education for children aged three years and over. The Commonwealth government provides assistance to all other sectors of education, but since 1985 has provided no support to preschools. This national under-resourcing of preschool education underpins many of the barriers that currently prevent universal access to high quality preschool education. Within it, different systems are providing different levels of commitment to preschool education, leading to inequities in the cost to parents and the level of support and resources provided to services. The AEU initiated this independent inquiry because of our concern about the children who continue to miss out on such access. The inquiry is underpinned by a commitment to equity and the belief that all children in Australia should have access to a high quality free public preschool education.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

'Swimming upstream' : young people and service provision under Job Services Australia /

by Rose, Jen | Youth Affairs Council of Victoria | Morstyn, Lisa | Tudehope, Alice.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Youth Affairs Council of Victoria 2011Description: 44 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2011 Bibliography : p. 42-44 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: YACVic has examined the provision of employment services to vulnerable or disadvantaged young people under the Job Services Australia (JSA) program. We have chosen to research this area because of the high rates of youth unemployment in Australia. As of June 2011, young people aged between 15 and 24 years were experiencing an unemployment rate of 11.0 per cent, significantly higher than that of the broader Australian community (4.9 per cent). Our report seeks to assess whether the JSA program is currently meeting the needs of young people in Australia. The report confirms the importance of all generalist and specialised youth JSA service providers adopting best practices when working with young people seeking employment. In addition, the report recommends that the JSA program provides greater recognition of social or non-vocational outcomes achieved by JSA providers for vulnerable young people and that the JSA program encourage JSA providers to adopt an integrated, flexible and highly individualised approach when working with vulnerable young people.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania 2014Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2014 Bibliography : p. 59-61Summary: Asylum seekers have been identified over the last years as a major group at serious risk of disadvantage, isolation and marginalisation leading to deprivation, poverty and a lack of social integration.1 This research report provides a summary of the emergency relief (ER) services and other related support to asylum seekers living in the community provided by UnitingCare Victoria and Tasmania (UCVT) agencies. It is based on an initial scoping of UCVT sites operating in metropolitan Melbourne, as well as one regional agency. Research was largely based on semi-structured interviews, mainly with ER agency staff, case studies and service user stories provided by agencies. This report also includes some aggregated statistics and figures provided by participating agencies - where data was available specific to this user group. ; The fast changing policy and operational environment meant that completing parts of this research project and analysis proved challenging. The analysis of the policy context and background was therefore undertaken after the completion of primary research.Availability: (1)
