A review of the research literature has shown that there are few studies on refugees as learners in New Zealand contexts.

This study has provided some insights into the nature and extent of refugees' learning needs as well as some elucidation of strategies to achieve impact on their language and literacy skills with a longer aim of achieving successful settlement in New Zealand.Availability: (1)

Differing skill requirements across countries and over time /

by Ryan, Chris | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Sinning, Mathias.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 36Summary: This report investigates skill matches to job requirements for workers in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Canada. It might be expected that differences between the four countries in economic growth, technological innovation and structural change in the labour market may have led to differences in job skill requirements and use. This research finds, however, that the broad match of workers to jobs that use their skills is quite similar for the four countries, although some differences in the patterns of skill use over time were identified. This is one of the research reports resulting from a three-year program of research (Securing their future: older workers and the role of VET).Availability: (1)

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth. Briefing paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2010 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Using data from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY), this briefing paper explores the impact of literacy and numeracy levels on the educational gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth. The paper focuses on the early post-school outcomes of Indigenous and non-Indigenous young people between 1999 and 2007. Raising the levels of literacy and numeracy for Indigenous youth would help to improve some of their educational outcomes. However, many Indigenous young people face multiple disadvantages, such as poor access to post-school education and poor health, in addition to low literacy and numeracy levels, which subsequently affect their outcomes.Availability: (1)
