Building the Education Revolution Implementation Taskforce : first report /

by Australia. Building the Education Revolution Implementation askforce.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth of Australia 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2010 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: The primary goal of the BER program was to underpin economic activity in the construction sector through a period of significant global uncertainty. Effective monetary policy, strong commodity prices, continued growth in China and the Commonwealth's fiscal stimulus program all acted in concert to economically shield Australia from the global financial crisis. The Taskforce considers BER made a material contribution to economic growth especially in its first year. It is projected to support approximately 120,000 jobs over the full life of the program, filling a gap left in demand from the private sector and playing an important role in supporting apprentices and skill retention in the building and construction industry. The Commonwealth established the BER Implementation Taskforce (the Taskforce) in May 2010 to receive, investigate and respond to complaints about the Program, with a focus on examining whether schools and education authorities are achieving value for money from their BER projects. The Taskforce was asked to make recommendations to the Commonwealth about any changes to the Program policy, contracts or projects it thinks could improve the remaining delivery of school buildings and refurbishments.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2011Description: PDF.Notes: Bibliography : p. 124-132 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This report presents the analysis and key findings of the project on Climate Change, Employment and Local Development in Sydney, Australia, carried out by the OECD Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme. Sydney and its main organisations are undergoing an important transformation in terms of the approach to human capital development, growth and job creation, and integrating the sustainability component into the greater metropolitan Sydney strategy and actions. Sydney is leading a wave of transformation in the country and has some state-of-the-art initiatives that are examples to other OECD regions. However, a challenge remains with respect to the governance of the system and the adjustment of programmes to the new needs of a low-carbon economy. This report analyses the challenges and opportunities of Sydney in this context, and provides some policy recommendations on how the public authorities and other key agencies could best support the emergence of a green economy - making the best use of the skills available while creating wealth and growth.Availability: No items available
