Traineeship access programme proposal submitted to the Department of Education, Employment and Training. / by the Brotherhood of St. Laurence

by Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 1987Description: PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: September 1987 Summary: The Australian Traineeship System has been conceived as a substantial opportunity for young people seeking entry into the non-trades sector of the Australian Labour Market. For those who complete their training it is a qualification nationally recognised by employers and education bodies alike. For employers it formalises skill specific non-trades entry point training within economically rational parameters. However, when one looks to the critical needs area of employment disadvantaged young people within the target group, the present ATS guidelines makes only a passive provision for their access. While this may have been determined as appropriate during the time of the system's inception, it is strongly recommended that now is the time to change this to a pro-active approach. To delay further will make for long term difficulties in creating appropriate access opportunities for the group. Suitable and effective programmes should be being developed concomitantly with Traineeships taking a firm hold in the private sector. We are recommending two significant although not costly modifications to the Australian Traineeship System, and the adoption of a Pilot study into a further area we believe ultimately will have the potential of far greater outcomes. These modifications will not discount either the quality of ATS training or the status of the ATS qualification. However, applied strategically they will go far toward meeting access and affirmative action ends while at the same time alleviating employer concerns as to the risks inherent in employing otherwise disadvantaged young people Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Vocational education and training and people with a disability : a review of the research /

by Griffin, Tabatha | National Cente for Vocational Education Research | Nechvoglod, Lisa.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Cente for Vocational Education Research 2008Description: 24 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: One of the priorities of the Australian Government?s social inclusion agenda is employment for people living with a disability or mental illness. This year the government has been developing a National Mental Health and Disability Employment Strategy which, in part, will examine vocational education and training (VET) issues for people with a disability. It is therefore timely to assess what we know and do not know about how people with a disability engage with the VET system. This paper summarises what recent research tells us about VET participation, education and employment outcomes, and the costs and benefits of VET for people with a disability. In doing so, it also highlights further questions and indicates where research efforts could be focused in order to help shape future directions in policy and practice.Availability: (1)

Vocational education and training for the common good : the macrosocial benefits of VET /

by European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training.

Publisher: Luxembourg Publications Office of the European Union 2011Description: PDF.Other title: European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 62-66Summary: This report considers two mechanisms by which initial vocational education and training (IVET) or continuing vocational education and training (CVET) might produce macrosocial benefits. First, the aggregate level of VET qualifications (measured by the incidence of VET qualifications among the population) might cause benefits through increasing the overall level of human capital. Second is its positive influence on education equality. Researching these two calls for very different methodological approaches. In the first case (human capital) an exploratory time-series estimation approach was applied (following Green et al., 2006). It is found that the macrosocial benefits of VET are, largely, equal to those of general education (of comparable level). In the second case (equity) institutional arrangements through which VET may influence education equity were explored qualitatively with selected country case studies. The evidence shows that reducing the academic/vocational divide, reducing tracking (or using IVET to reintegrate onto mainstream tracks), mitigating against gender or ethnic inequality in IVET and CVET, integrating IVET and CVET (for example through a national qualification system spanning both forms of VET) and aiding the transition between VET and labour markets, tend to promote education equality. So long as that appropriate institutional arrangements are made, VET is important for equity and, therefore, for social cohesion.Availability: (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)

Work and learning /

by Williams, Jenny | Inquiry into the Future for Lifelong Learning | Wilson, Tom.

Publisher: Leicester, U.K. National Institute of Adult Continuing Education 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Inquiry into the Future for Lifelong Learning. Thematic paper.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 78-81Summary: The workplace is both a platform and a site for lifelong learning. As a result it has been present through the whole Inquiry into the Future for Lifelong Learning. This paper looks specifically at learning at or for work and relates it to the Inquiry's theme of prosperity, employment and work. It has been written during the economic crisis at a time of rapid change in the economy, which has had profound implications for work and learning. The 2006 Leitch Review of Skills is our starting point.1 We broadly agree with the ambitions it sets out for the UK to become a world leader in skills by 2020: the UK's success and future prosperity will depend on more of us having higher skills and the capability to put them to good use in an increasingly complex world. But we do not believe that an exclusive focus on improving the supply of skills is sufficient: more needs to be done to raise demand from employers for skills development, and to promote skills utilisation. We should re-focus the collective investment we currently make in learning for work to secure greater value from it, and over time, we will need stronger measures to increase that investment, if we are to make best use of all our talents.Availability: (1)
