Improving access to traineeships for (long term unemployed and) disadvantaged young people: an issues paper circulated by Youth Affairs Council of Victoria. /

Publisher: n.p. n.p. (assistance from the Brotherhood of St Laurence) 1987Description: 24p.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Prepared by working party including Ian Brain, Judie Kay and Lindsey Nelson (BSL). December 1987Summary: Australia is currently restructuring its economy and it is a painful process, particularly for more vulnerable sections of the community. Changing labour market trends, introduction of new technology, social changes resulting in changes in labour market participation by some groups, (women, youth, older age groups), and economic recession have meant that over the last decade there has been a massive increase in the overall numbers of unemployed in our society. From 1970 to 1983 the increase was 800% (SSR, Discussion Paper No. 20 Occupation: Unemployed. Trends in Unemployment in Australia 1970 to 1986). Concurrent with these high rates of unemployment there is the anomalous situation of a skill-short economy; the people who are unemployed do not have the skills to fill the current job vacancies. There is a skill mismatch.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Improving employment participation for welfare recipients facing personal barriers. /

by Perkins, Daniel.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2006Description: 15 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Paper presented by Daniel Perkins to the 39th Social Policy Association Conference, University of Birmingham, July 18-20 2006Summary: There is an increasing recognition that welfare recipients facing significant disadvantage in the labour market are not being well assisted by the conventional labour market programs. Often such job seekers struggle against an interaction of employment and educational barriers combined with a range of personal issues such as mental health problems, substance abuse, criminal records, physical health problems, homelessness, and family breakdown. While there is agreement on the need to provide additional support there is little consensus about what form this should take and whether it can be added to existing programs or requires the development of new initiatives. It is also not clear whether individuals facing personal barriers should be encouraged or required to engage in vocational activities at the same time as addressing personal barriers or whether personal barriers should be addressed prior to providing employment assistance. This paper explores the labour market outcomes for people facing severe personal barriers to employment in Australia the US and Europe. It then considers whether such people want to work, whether work is beneficial or detrimental and examines current policy responses and gaps. The final section of the paper draws primarily on US research to document program elements and models that have been successful in achieving improved employment outcomes for this group.

by Sala,Hector | Institute for the Study of Labor | Silva, Jos I.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2011 Bibliography : p. 19-20Summary: In this paper we show that vocational training is an important determinant of productivity growth. We construct a multi-country, multi-sectoral dataset, and quantify empirically to what extent vocational training has contributed to increase the growth rate of labour productivity in Europe between 1999 and 2005. We find that one extra hour of training per employee accelerates the rate of productivity growth by around 0.55 percentage points.Availability: (1)

Learning for Jobs : OECD Reviews of Vocational Education and Training : Austria /

by Hoeckel, Kathrin | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Publishing 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2010 Bibliography : p. 53-61Summary: Learning for Jobs is an OECD study of vocational education and training (VET) designed to help countries make their VET systems more responsive to labour market needs. Austria has a well developed VET system with a strong dual component integrating learning in schools and workplace training and involving the social partners in design and delivery. The system caters for a broad range of needs and helps to keep youth unemployment low. At the same time the Austrian system confronts several challenges, including a structural anomaly at 9th grade imposing a double transition on some students. Given the large number of individually defined qualifications, more attention could be paid to providing sufficient broad basic skills and good quality career guidance to all. There are some concerns with quality assurance of apprenticeship training and workshop-based dual program potentially reducing incentives for employers to provide apprenticeships. The OECD review assesses the main challenges faced by the VET system and presents an interconnected package of policy recommendations. For each recommendation, the report describes the challenge, the recommendation itself, supporting arguments, and issues of implementation.Availability: (1)

Measuring the quality of VET using the Student Outcomes Survey /

by Lee, Wang-Sheng | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research | Polidano, Cain.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 32 Includes appendices pp. 33-36 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: With the Australian VET sector moving towards a more competitive model of provision, prospective students should have greater choice in where they study and what they study. A competitive market also means that VET providers should make available information about course outcomes. This report looks at the potential use of information from the Student Outcomes Survey, including the use of student course satisfaction information and post-study outcomes, as a means of determining markers of training quality. The main recommendation is that a 'scoreboard' approach of post-study outcomes is adopted providing average outcomes by provider and field of education for a number of employment- and training-related variables.Availability: (1)
