Education, first occupation and later occupational attainment : cross-cohort changes among men and women in Britain /

by Bukodi, Erzsebet | University of London. Institute of Education. Centre for ongitudinal Studies.

Publisher: London, U.K. University of London, Institute of Education, Centre for Longitudinal Studies 2009Description: PDF.Other title: University of London. Institute of Education. Centre for.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2009 Bibliography : p. 22-24 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This paper examines cohort and gender differences in occupational attainment in Britain. Using data from the three British Birth Cohort studies, I investigate the process of occupational attainment up to age 34 using a scale based on occupational earnings. Although qualifications appear to have stronger effects on occupational attainment for women than for men at both labour market entry and in the midthirties, I find no consistent evidence that the importance of qualifications is becoming greater across cohorts, either for men or for women. Also, there are no indications that the effects of occupation at labour market entry on men?s and women?s later occupational attainment have been strengthening over time. However, the findings do point to the possibility of cohort-specific effects: the experience of men and women in the 1958 cohort consistently differs from that of those in both the 1946 and 1970 cohorts.Availability: (1)

Framework and tools for assessing and understanding the green economy at the local level /

by Eberts, Randall W | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. ocal Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme.

Publisher: Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2011Summary: The transition to a green economy will imply many changes in the labour market locally and the local development systems. The impacts are still difficult to measure as definitions vary and policy uncertainties persist. The OECD Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme is making an important contribution to these debates with its project on Climate Change, Employment and Local Development which is looking at the obstacles hindering green growth at the local level and the policy frameworks needed to ensure skills availability, economic activity and market opportunities in the green economy. This report makes a valuable contribution to the OECD LEED work on the transition to a green economy and its implications at the local level.Availability: (1)

Pre-apprenticeships and their impact on apprenticeship completion and satisfaction /

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

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: In this report, the authors concentrate on apprentices in trade occupations, where pre-apprenticeship programs are most prevalent. Approximately 28 per cent of apprentices and trainees in the trade occupations reported that they had completed a pre-apprenticeship program. This allows the authors to examine a number of questions about the impact of pre-apprenticeship training on the apprenticeship experience. First, they look at whether those who undertook pre-apprenticeship training were more satisfied with their apprenticeship than their peers who had not. Second, they look at whether those who undertook a pre-apprenticeship are more likely to complete their training. Thirdly, they examine whether those who undertook a pre-apprenticeship but who did not complete their apprenticeship are less likely to give work- or training-based factors as their reason for not completing their training. Our motivation is to determine whether the pre-apprenticeship training gives potential apprentices a more realistic idea of what an apprenticeship really is. (Introduction)Availability: (1)

Returns to ambition : the role of early career plans in the transition from education to work /

by Sikora, Joanna | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Although the literature on educational plans and attainments of youth is comprehensive, less is known about the role which specific career choices, formed early in high school, may play in attaining high status professional occupations. This is mostly due to lack of longitudinal data, as rarely do high school students get asked about their plans and then, years later, about their actual jobs. However, the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth of students who were in Year 9 in 1998 do have the information on career plans of students and their later occupational attainment. Thus it is possible to compare early choices and the actual jobs held by LSAY respondents who were surveyed every year until 2008. This analysis focuses on the relative importance of individual plans versus family background and academic achievement in enabling Generation Y, as this cohort is known, to realise their early ambitions. I find that adolescent career plans are consequential even after plans to attend university and the actual university completion have been taken into account. This is important as clearly stopping at planning to go to university is not enough. Returns to early vocational ambitions are more evident for employment defined by respondents as 'career related'.Availability: (1)

Skill shortages in the trades during economic downturns /

by Oliver, Damian | National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 37 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This paper looks at recent economic downturns and finds that there is little convincing evidence of persistent skill shortages in the trades. There is no evidence of persistent skill shortages across downturns in the construction, automotive and engineering trades. Declining numbers of apprenticeship completions led to persistent shortages in the electrical trades during the 1990s and 2000s but apprenticeship completions for this trade have now recovered to pre-1992 levels. Very high job churn creates the perception of persistent skill shortages in the food trades and in hairdressing. Many food tradespersons and hairdressers swap employers but remain in their occupation.Availability: (1)
