PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: The 20th annual Sambell Oration, Wednesday 17 October 2001 at the Shell Conference Centre, Melbourne Summary: 53 years ago this December, a war-ravaged and war-weary world ushered in a new international order with what was called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was a bold and brilliant document full of words, phrases and concepts that everyone wanted to hear. It spoke of recognising the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. It observed that disregard and contempt for human rights had resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind. It called for the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief, and freedom from fear and want, as the highest aspiration of the common people. It declared as essential that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

2010 update of the European inventory on validation of non-formal and informal learning - final report /

by Hawley, Jo | European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training | Souto Otero, Manuel | Duchemin, Claire.

Publisher: Thessaloniki, Greece European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 37-38Summary: The European Inventory provides a unique record on how validation is already being used at national, regional and local level to address issues relating to lifelong learning, employment and social exclusion. This is particularly important in the context of the current economic crisis, which has accelerated the importance of validation drivers identified in the 2007 Inventory, such as the need for effective re-deployment of the adult population into employment. A number of countries have recognised the role validation has to play in addressing skills shortages and in supporting those facing redundancy to identify and pursue an alternative career pathway. Other initiatives recognise the role of validation in combating social exclusion, by empowering 'the low qualified' and other disadvantaged groups to identify and understand their own competences and potential.Availability: (1)

by Quirk, Victor.

Publisher: Callaghan, N.S.W. Centre for Full Employment and Equity 2009Description: PDF.Notes: Working Paper no.09-04Summary: This paper argues for specific, major, institutional reforms capable of building a high-skilled internationally competitive labour force in Australia. It argues for replacing the current policy of maintaining labour underutilisation as a productivity driver, with a national system of counter-cyclical public sector employment (Job Guarantee) and ; skills formation infrastructure, organised on a regional basis. ; The first section introduces the issue of Australia's deficient skill formation capacity. Sections 2 & 3 summarise deficits in key labour market institutions, the Job Network and the tertiary education sector. Section 4 highlights the chronic failure of the private sector to provide supervised opportunities for novices to undertake skilled work. Section 5 argues that the state has a unique responsibility to act, while section 6 proposes necessary components of an institutional framework. The conclusion addresses the political question of opposition to full employment.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
