Labor productivity and vocational training : evidence from Europe /

by Sala,Hector | Institute for the Study of Labor | Silva, Jos I.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2011 Bibliography : p. 19-20Summary: In this paper we show that vocational training is an important determinant of productivity growth. We construct a multi-country, multi-sectoral dataset, and quantify empirically to what extent vocational training has contributed to increase the growth rate of labour productivity in Europe between 1999 and 2005. We find that one extra hour of training per employee accelerates the rate of productivity growth by around 0.55 percentage points.Availability: (1)

INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: One of the significant challenges facing Australia is the ageing of the population. This challenge has led policy-makers to consider how older workers can be kept in the workforce. To help generate discussion on older workers, NCVER commissioned six researchers to draft essays on various issues around keeping older Australians engaged with the workforce. These essays, and responses by six additional discussants, were presented at a roundtable held in Canberra in May 2011. Themes to arise from the roundtable included the need to consider the diversity of older workers, the challenges of low literacy and numeracy skills for some older workers, discrimination and stereotypes, and the recognition that not all older workers want to keep working.Availability: (1)

Traineeship access programme proposal submitted to the Department of Education, Employment and Training. / by the Brotherhood of St. Laurence

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1987Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: September 1987 Summary: The Australian Traineeship System has been conceived as a substantial opportunity for young people seeking entry into the non-trades sector of the Australian Labour Market. For those who complete their training it is a qualification nationally recognised by employers and education bodies alike. For employers it formalises skill specific non-trades entry point training within economically rational parameters. However, when one looks to the critical needs area of employment disadvantaged young people within the target group, the present ATS guidelines makes only a passive provision for their access. While this may have been determined as appropriate during the time of the system's inception, it is strongly recommended that now is the time to change this to a pro-active approach. To delay further will make for long term difficulties in creating appropriate access opportunities for the group. Suitable and effective programmes should be being developed concomitantly with Traineeships taking a firm hold in the private sector. We are recommending two significant although not costly modifications to the Australian Traineeship System, and the adoption of a Pilot study into a further area we believe ultimately will have the potential of far greater outcomes. These modifications will not discount either the quality of ATS training or the status of the ATS qualification. However, applied strategically they will go far toward meeting access and affirmative action ends while at the same time alleviating employer concerns as to the risks inherent in employing otherwise disadvantaged young people Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
