by Myconos, George | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: viii, 28 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 27-28Summary: This report evaluates a pre-Community VCAL 'Taster' course offered at the Brotherhood of St Laurence's Frankston High Street Centre. The course engaged young people who were seriously disaffected with mainstream secondary school education, and who were facing their transition to adulthood without having acquired important skills. It provided valuable literacy, numeracy, vocational and social skills tuition, as well as the experience these students needed to make judgments about continuing vocational or further education. ; VICTORIAN CERTIFICATE OF APPLIED LEARNING (VCAL)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Applied learning after class /

by Pardy, John | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Other title: The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) Bibliography : p. 11-12 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: By foregrounding teachers, practices in the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) this paper illustrates how social class can be deployed to critically explain inequalities and differences in schooling. Applied learning is represented as a practical and 'un-academic' schooling option for the 'difficult to teach', and has similarities with earlier institutional forms of working class schooling as provided in Technical Schools. Schooling through VCAL prepares students differently than general schooling by instigating a new subjective and cultural shift in schooling. ; VICTORIAN CERTIFICATE OF APPLIED LEARNING (VCAL)Availability: (1)

The data are from the 2003 15 year old cohort of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY). Most members of this LSAY Y03 cohort were in Year 10 in 2003. The present report examines how much career advice students accessed in Years 10, 11 and 12 across three years of data collection (2003-2005). A smaller group of the cohort is followed each year; this group was in Year 10 in 2003, Year 11 in 2004, and Year 12 in 2005. For this group of more than 5000 young people, analyses were conducted to determine what influences their perceptions of the usefulness of career advice while at school.Availability: (1)

Does combining school and work affect school and post-school outcomes? /

by Anlezark, Alison | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Lim, Patrick.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography p. 29 Appendices pp. 30-52 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In this report the authors seek to answer the question of whether combining school and work is detrimental or beneficial to a student's school educational performance and labour market outcomes. They find that young people who combine school and work are distributed right across the school population. Results show that individuals can combine school and work with minimal impact on their study if the hours are modest and those working longer hours show a stronger orientation towards work than study. The authors used data from the 2003 cohort (Y03) of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth.Availability: (1)
