The changing nature and patterns of work and the implications of VET. /

by Waterhouse, Peter | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Wilson, Bruce | Ewer, Peter.

Publisher: Leabrook, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 1999Description: 54 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Review of research -- cover Summary: This review offers an overview of recent literature on changes in the nature and patterns of work and their implications for vocational education and training (VET). As a service industry, VET faces the double bind of coping with these changes and simultaneously providing high quality goods and services to help other industries to do so. It is apparent that the changing nature and patterns of work present significant challenges to the VET sector. The complexity and ambiguity of changes suggest that the resulting challenges are unlikely to be addressed effectively through simplistic strategies or universal policies. The requirements of multiple stakeholders and regional/local communities need to be taken into account.Availability: (1)

The impact of wages and the likelihood of employment on the probability of completing an apprenticeship or traineeship /

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

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 35Summary: This paper updates an earlier paper by Karmel and Mlotkowski and looks at how the probability of getting a job, in addition to wages, impacts on completion rates. It finds that for trade apprentices the premium (or extra wage completing an apprenticeship brings) attached to becoming a tradesperson is a significant factor, whereas for non-trade trainees the training wage matters more. It also finds that the probability of employment for an apprentice or trainee on completion is greater than if they drop out; this particularly affects completion rates for trades and females in non-trade occupations. Finally, the economic downturn significantly increased the attractiveness of apprenticeships and traineeships.Availability: (1)

The impact of wages on the probability of completing an apprenticeship or traineeship /

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

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: National Centre for Vocational Education Research monograph.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 36 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Making use of the NCVER Apprentice and Trainee Destination Survey, this paper focuses on wages and the impact they have on the decision not to continue with an apprenticeship or traineeship. The broad conclusion is that increasing training wages would have little effect on completion rates. For apprentices, it is the premium associated with becoming a tradesperson that counts, not training wages. For females in non-trade traineeships, there is no relationship between wages and completion rates. It is only for males in non-trade traineeships for whom increasing training wages would make a difference to completion rates. However, for this group there is, on average, only a modest premium to completion. This finding raises the question of whether traineeships in some occupations, sales for example, are contributing to increased skill levels in any substantive manner.Availability: (1)

National Cente for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: 49 p.: ill. tables, graphs.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Low levels of education generally among people with a disability is one of the factors contributing to their lower rate of labour market participation. What role vocational education and training (VET) plays in ameliorating this is the focus of this report. Using data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics of Australia surveys, the report finds that for people who are not working, completing a VET qualification does increase the chance of employment and more so for people with a disability.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The role of vocational education and training in welfare to work. /

by Guenther, John | National Cente for Vocational Education Research | Falk, Ian | Arnott, Allan.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Cente for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: 39 p.: ill., tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: The report focuses on what makes training programs effective for the target groups in the transition to employment and points out that there are many challenges to be faced notably the personal circumstances of the clients and the constraints associated with contractual obligations and funding arrangements. ; The key messages are that effective transitional programs must address the needs of the specific client groups. They must develop employability skills; involve considerable pastoral care from the training providers; provide on-the-job experience and preferably a career pathway and be flexible and allow for the personal constraints of the clients, for example, transport, childcare and illness.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).
