Department of Work and Pensions working paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography : p. 38-40 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This working paper presents findings from research commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and funded by an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) CASE PhD studentship in collaboration with DWP. The study had two main aims: first, to examine the benefit and activation policies in other Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries which are most effective in assisting partnered women into work; and secondly, to assess the transferability of these policies to the British context. The research examined reforms in Australia and Denmark and concentrated on policies and programmes focusing on lone and partnered parents (Australia) and married couples (Denmark). The paper considers the key policy components from the two case study countries and offers a number of possibilities for policy transfer and translation.Availability: (1)

Career ready : skills and training for a career : discussion paper /

by Generationone.

Publisher: Redfern, N.S.W. Generationone 2011Description: 44 p. : ill.Other title: Skills and training for a career : a Generationone policy.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Many employers want to expand their Indigenous workforce and many Indigenous people want to work. However, employers are having difficulty connecting with Indigenous jobseekers who are work and job ready, while some Indigenous jobseekers lack the basic skills and relevant training to apply for and participate in real work. Training is not aligned to the needs of the employment market, and despite large amounts of government expenditure, is failing to ensure Indigenous people are gaining work upon completion. This has to change. Communities and employers have advocated for changes to training and work preparation systems. The GenerationOne Skills and Training for a Career draft policy is about supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to become work and job ready, in line with the needs of employers. It is also about preparing workplaces for Indigenous involvement so that diversity is valued and seen as a strength. Under this framework, local industries and employers will work in partnership with Indigenous people and their communities, and governments, service providers, and education and training providers will support and enable that partnership to operate effectively.Availability: (1)

Eligibility criteria for unemployment benefits : quantitative indicators for OECD and EU countries /

by Venn, Danielle | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publishing 2012Description: PDF.Other title: OECD social, employment and migration working papers ; no. 131.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2012 Bibliography pp. 59-60 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Eligibility criteria for unemployment benefits, which require recipients to actively look for work, take up suitable job offers or take part in active labour market programmes (ALMPs), or risk benefit sanctions, can play an important role in offsetting the negative impact of generous unemployment benefits on employment incentives. This paper presents information on the strictness of eligibility criteria for unemployment benefits for 36 OECD and/or EU member countries. It covers entitlement conditions (employment and/or contribution requirements to gain access to benefits and sanctions for voluntary unemployment), job-search requirements (availability requirements during ALMPs and suitable work criteria), monitoring of job-search effort and sanctions for refusing a job offer or ALMP placement. These qualitative data are then used to compile a composite indicator of the strictness of eligibility criteria and some comparisons are made with the results of a similar exercise for earlier periods. This indicator complements existing cross-country indicators relating to unemployment benefits, such as net replacement rate data from the OECD Tax and Benefits database and data on ALMP expenditure compiled annually by Eurostat and the OECD.Availability: (1)

Enhancing youth employability : what? why? and how? guide to core work skills /

by Brewer, Laura.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland International Labour Office 2013Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 2013Summary: This paper is designed to guide readers through the key issues in identifying the relevant core skills for employability, understanding their importance and ways these skills can be delivered, attained and recognized. An ILO review of numerous teaching methodologies and training techniques demonstrates that acquiring such skills requires innovative ways of delivering training, so that core skills go hand in hand with technical skills. This guide illustrates various ways of integrating employability skills into core academic content and vocational training, rather than providing a 'core skills curriculum'.Availability: (1)

Families and work : revisiting barriers to employment /

by Bashir, Nadia | Crisp, Richard | Gore, Tony | Reeve, Kesia | Robinson, David.

Publisher: Sheffield, U.K. Department for Work and Pensions 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Great Britain. Department of Work and Pensions research.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2011 Bibliography pp. 80-81 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: In recent years, considerable effort has been put into supporting parents to make the transition into work. This study was commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to explore whether these incentives were helping parents to overcome the barriers known to impede their engagement in the formal labour market. ; The report is based on fieldwork conducted in 2009. However, the concluding chapter considers the significance of the findings in light of proposals for the introduction of the Universal Credit and other reforms of the tax and benefit systems proposed by the Coalition Government. ; The research approach focused on two main tasks. First, the re-analysis of data from a previous study commissioned by DWP and delivered by the same team (Fletcher et al., 2008). This involved revisiting transcripts from in-depth, qualitative interviews with 67 parents, paying particular attention to the interaction between parenthood and work. Subsequently, a series of additional interviews explored issues of relevance to the follow-on study that had been left untouched or remained unclear following re-analysis of interview data from the original study. Twelve repeat interviews were conducted with parents who participated in the original study, and 38 in-depth, qualitative interviews were conducted with new respondents. ; (Introduction)Availability: (1)
