Department for Work and Pensions research.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Appendices pp. 55-83 Bibliography pp. 84-86 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: There has been much emphasis on increasing the employment rate in the United Kingdom (UK) in recent years and policy has increasingly been geared towards increasing the labour market participation of people with traditionally high rates of non-employment, such as disabled people. The introduction of the Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) with increased conditionality can be seen as an attempt to get more disabled people into work and participating in work-related activity, which raises questions about employment opportunities in the labour market for disabled people. For example, it is already known that people can face discrimination in employment recruitment procedures according to age, gender, ethnicity and disability and research has highlighted that disabled job applicants may be discriminated against when compared to non-disabled applicants with similar skills and experience.Availability: (1)

The figures in this publication are derived from the Survey of Employers’ Use and Views of the VET System.

by Ryan, Chris | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Sinning, Mathias.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 36Summary: This report investigates skill matches to job requirements for workers in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Canada.

This research finds, however, that the broad match of workers to jobs that use their skills is quite similar for the four countries, although some differences in the patterns of skill use over time were identified. This is one of the research reports resulting from a three-year program of research (Securing their future: older workers and the role of VET).Availability: (1)

by Ryan, Chris | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Sinning, Mathias.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A.

The research shows that most over-skilled workers have low levels of education and require fewer skills at work than they actually have. The majority of under-skilled workers, however, hold a university degree, suggesting that many highly educated workers have jobs that require more skills than they actually seem to possess.Availability: (1)

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Centre for Social Impact 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Centre for Social Impact background paper ; no. 8 January 2011.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2011Summary: In the fierce competition that volunteer-involving-organisations face nowadays over many resources, but particularly over people's willingness to donate their time for a specific organisation, marketing strategies should be used to recruit more suitable volunteers. If the organisation works to improve its ability to recruit volunteers, it needs to correctly identify its target groups, but also understand what the positioning of the organisation is and what type of volunteering roles are being offered. This can be done by using positioning and perceptual mapping, two marketing tools which can be implemented in the volunteering context.Availability: (1)
