The role of VET in preventing the scarring effect of youth joblessness /

by Buddelmeyer, Hielke | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | H rault, Nicolas.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography p. 33 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Youth unemployment, particularly long-term unemployment, is always a concern given the economic and social ramifications that it brings. Using data from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth, this report looks at the extent to which a previous spell of unemployment determines current unemployment. If unemployment can be attributed to an earlier period of unemployment, we describe that earlier spell as having a 'scarring effect'. The report also examines the extent to which post-school educational qualifications can reduce the scarring effect of unemployment. Scarring does occur but its effect quickly diminishes over time. Post-school qualifications are found to help reduce this effect.Availability: (1)

The shifting demographics and lifelong learning /

by Karmel, Tom | National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This paper was presented at the International Symposium on Lifelong Learning for Poverty Alleviation and Sustainable Development: Developing a Research Agenda for the Asia-Pacific in Hong Kong, 12-13 January 2011. Tom Karmel suggests that there are four implications of an ageing population: the need to improve labour force participation and productivity; the ageing population will provide a 'demographic dividend' because there will be fewer young people to school; increasing life expectancy changes the arithmetic of the return to investments in human capital and makes investment in the middle-aged more attractive; and ageing populations in developed countries provide an opportunity for developing countries through the export of labour services.(NCVER summary)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research July 2011Description: 42 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Increasing productivity by moving people from welfare to employment is a priority for the Australian Government. This report considers the complex issues of helping those marginalised from the labour market into employment. Case studies of innovative intermediaries illustrate that both demand and supply factors must feature in order to provide successful assistance to disadvantaged job seekers. Strategies used include networking, adapting to changing conditions and reinventing themselves to fill gaps in the provision of support. Vocational education and training, often touted as an ideal pathway into employment for disadvantaged groups, is described by these intermediaries as inert in the absence of social and economic support...websiteAvailability: (1)

What would it take? : employer perspectives on employing people with a disability /

by Waterhouse, Peter | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Kimberley, Helen | Jonas, Pam | Glover, John.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) 2010Description: 39 p. PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Helen Kimberley worked for the Research and Policy Centre from 2009-2017.Summary: One focus of the Australian Government's social inclusion agenda is to help people with a disability into work. For this to succeed, employers must be willing and able to productively employ people with a disability. The purpose of this study was to answer the question 'what would it take' to enable employers to employ people with a disability. Based on focus groups with select employers from small-to-medium enterprises, the research found that, while employers were quite positive about employing a person with a disability, they lacked confidence in dealing with disability employment issues.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Research Report ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : pp. 31 Appendices : pp. 32-55 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In this paper, the authors identify various educational paths involving school and post-school study and assess the effectivness of these in relation to post-school outcomes at age 25 years. They use the 1995 cohort of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth and find that, for males, undertaking an apprenticeship after completing senior secondary and university are attractive paths. For females, the best path is that of university study, even for those with low academic orientation.Availability: (1)

Who works beyond the 'standard' retirement age and why? /

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

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 41-42Summary: With life expectancy increasing, and changes to public policy aimed at encouraging older workers to stay in the workforce, the conditions under which people decide to retire have changed in recent years. This report describes the characteristics of those who continue to work beyond the age of 65. The findings show that two groups of workers, in terms of their educational qualifications, are more likely to remain working-the most and least educated-while labour force participation of those with vocational qualifications declines.Availability: (1)

Year 12 completion and youth transitions /

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

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth. Research report ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : pp. 38-39 Appendices : pp. 40-47 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: On average, young people who complete Year 12 tend to have more successful transitions from education to work than those who do not. However, in recent years there has been a realisation that it does not make much sense to promote Year 12 retention for its own sake. In this paper, Ryan investigates labour market outcomes for a range of different pathways undertaken by young people. He uses the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) to show that completion of senior secondary schooling provides the best labour market outcomes, relative to other vocational education paths.Availability: (1)
