A social inclusion action plan : opportunities and challenges : discussion paper /

by Swinburne University of Technology.

Publisher: Hawthorn, Vic. Swinburne University of Technology 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2010 Bibliography : p. 28 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This discussion paper outlines the challenges and opportunities for Swinburne University of Technology in responding to the emerging social inclusion policy agenda in Australia. One of the significant policy agendas of both the State and Federal governments is Social Inclusion. As a result of the Bradley Review of Higher Education, all Universities will be allocated targets to increase their enrolments of students from a low Socio-economic background. It will be critical for Swinburne to have a clear understanding how we will engage with such groups and build educational opportunities. As a dual-sector University, Swinburne is ideally placed to address these issues, having the capability of providing pathways for a very broad range of students and to ensure they are adequately prepared to succeed.Availability: (1)

Adult further education - the unfinished revolution /

by Fletcher, Mick | 157 group.

Publisher: London, U.K. 157 Group 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2011 Includes bibliographical references.Summary: The aim of this paper is to welcome the steps that have already been taken by the coalition government to set colleges free from central regulation and to urge the government to go further and faster. Our proposals align closely with the principles outlined in the government's white paper about public services, which was published just as we were going to print. At the heart of this white paper is the notion of improving public services by enabling choice and control for individuals and neighbourhoods. In their foreword, the prime minister and deputy prime minister say they want to make opportunity more equal and that they believe that the old, centralised approach to public service delivery is broken. Embedded throughout the white paper are five core principals : choice, decentralisation, diversity, fairness and accountability. We fully support these principles; they strengthen our arguments for a truly demand-led system, with entitlement for loans and funding for all who seek it.Availability: (1)

Are young people's educational outcomes linked to their sense of control? /

by Baron, Juan D | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Cobb-Clark, Deborah.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne Institute working paper ; no. 5/10.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2010 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This paper analyzes the link between young people's sense (locus) of control over their lives and their investments in education. We find that young people with a more internal locus of control have a higher probability of finishing secondary school and, conditional on completion, meeting the requirements to obtain a university entrance rank. Moreover, those with an internal locus of control who obtain a university entrance rank achieve somewhat higher rankings than do their peers who have a more external locus of control. Not surprisingly, there is a negative relationship between growing up in disadvantage and educational outcomes. However, this effect does not appear to operate indirectly by increasing the likelihood of having a more external locus of control. In particular, we find no significant relationship between family welfare history and young people's locus of control.Availability: (1)

Disadvantaged children's 'low' educational expectations : are the US and UK really so different to other industrialized nations? /

by Jerrim, John | University of London. Institute of Education. Department of uantitative Social Science.

Publisher: London, U.K. University of London. Institute of Education. 2011Description: PDF.Other title: University of London. Institute of Education. Department of.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography pp. 32-34 Appendices pp. 44-52 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In most countries, children from disadvantaged backgrounds are under-represented amongst the undergraduate population. One explanation is that they do not see higher education as a realistic goal; that it is 'not for the likes of them'. In this paper, I use the Programme for International Assessment data to investigate whether 15 year olds from disadvantaged backgrounds are less likely to expect to complete university than their advantaged peers. I explore this issue across the OECD nations, though paying particular attention to the US and UK. My results suggest that children from less fortunate families are not as likely to make early plans for university as their affluent peers. Yet the extent to which these findings differ across countries is rather modest, with little evidence to suggest that the UK stands out from other members of the OECD. The US, on the other hand, appears to be a nation where the relationship between socio-economic background and the expectation of completing higher education is comparatively weak.Availability: (1)

Evaluation of the phase 2 raising the participation age trials - final report /

by Great Britain. Department for Education.

Publisher: Cheshire, U.K. Great Britain. Department for Education 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Great Britain. Department for Education. Research report ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The Education and Skills Act 2008 legislated to increase the age of compulsory participation in education or training to age 18 by 2015 and to the end of the year in which young people turn 17 in 2013. Young people will be able to participate in a way that suits them: for instance in full-time education at school or college, on an Apprenticeship, or part-time if they are also working or volunteering full-time. Achieving full participation of young people in education or training until age 18 will require all parts of the education system to play their part. Ultimately, however, it will be local authorities (LAs) that will be responsible for ensuring that young people in their areas participate and for providing the support young people need to overcome any barriers to learning.Availability: (1)
