Against the odds : influences on the post-school success of 'low performers' /

by Thomson, Sue | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Hiliman, Kylie.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: 36 p. : ill., graphs, tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : pp. 32 Appendices : pp. 33-36 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The link between academic achievement and labour market outcomes is well established. But how well does a student's achievement in a test predict their later success in life? This study examines this question, with 'success' considered to encompass satisfaction with life together with the extent to which young people are fully occupied with education, employment or a combination of these. Low performers in mathematics in the 2003 Programme for International Student Assessment were the focus. The study found that 'low performing' status has little impact on future success. Further, students who saw the value of mathematics for their future success were more likely to achieve this success.Availability: (1)

Also presented in this publication is information on employers’ use and satisfaction with unaccredited training, and recruitment difficulties experienced in the last 12 months. The figures in this publication are derived from the Survey of Employers’ Use and Views of the VET System. A total of 7007 interviews were conducted with Australian employers between February and June 2019 and the results relate to employers’ training experiences in the 12 months preceding their interview. Note for the purposes of this publication, nationally recognised training excludes training that was part of an apprenticeship or traineeship as employers’ use and views of apprentices and trainees is reported separately Availability: (1)
