Off to a good start? : jobs for youth /

by Sonnet, Anne | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010Description: 158 p. : ill.Online Access: OECD iLibrary (Read only) Notes: December 2010 ISummary: Youth have been very hard hit by the recent jobs crisis. The youth unemployment rate is approaching 20% in the OECD area and is likely to remain high well into the recovery. Coping with a job loss in a weak labour market - when job offers are scarce and competition for them among jobseekers is fierce, is difficult for anyone. But for young workers, and especially for the disadvantaged among them, failure to find a first job or keep it for long can have negative long term consequences on their career prospects that some experts refer to as 'scarring'. Reducing high youth unemployment should be a centrepiece of our policies. We cannot allow this crisis to result in a 'scarred' generation.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Response to the stronger futures for all young Victorians : discussion paper on the youth transtions system / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Duizend, Emily.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: 28 P. PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback and recommendations to the DEECD/DIIRD discussion paper on the youth transitions system. The Brotherhood has taken a leading role in trialling innovative approaches that re-engage disadvantaged children and young people in learning and skill building that leads to successful transitions to work. As the Stronger futures for all young Victorians discussion paper details, a substantial range of reforms to education and vocational training are being implemented through Victorian and Commonwealth Government initiatives. This commitment to improve both the quality and capacity of learning for young people is very welcome. However, the Brotherhood believes that there is still a range of additional reforms required to both significantly improve completion rates and to enable stronger transitions through school and into work opportunities for all young people. Such reforms need to extend to young people throughout their school years and beyond. We note that the scope of this discussion paper is limited to the 15-24 age range. We are concerned that some issues related to successful transitions, including literacy and numeracy support and pathway planning, require attention earlier than the age of 15. A broader policy focus is required. In addition, we are concerned that, within the paper, there is little consideration of the distinctive needs of 'older' young people in the 19-24 age groups.Availability: (1)

Returns from education : an occupational status approach /

by Lee, Jung-Sook | National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: 35 p. : graphs, tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : pp. 26 Appendices : pp. 27-35 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Attaining higher levels of education brings with it many benefits for an individual, such as more employment choices, higher income and greater job security. A more educated society contributes to economic growth and general well-being. Using the 1995 cohort of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth, this study looks at how the growth in occupational prestige is related to the level of an individual's education. The study also looks at the extent to which factors such as gender and socioeconomic status impact on this. The study finds that gaps of occupational prestige amongst young people with different educational attainment become greater as time goes by.Availability: (1)
