Does combining school and work affect school and post-school outcomes? /

by Anlezark, Alison | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Lim, Patrick.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography p. 29 Appendices pp. 30-52 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In this report the authors seek to answer the question of whether combining school and work is detrimental or beneficial to a student's school educational performance and labour market outcomes. They find that young people who combine school and work are distributed right across the school population. Results show that individuals can combine school and work with minimal impact on their study if the hours are modest and those working longer hours show a stronger orientation towards work than study. The authors used data from the 2003 cohort (Y03) of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth.Availability: (1)

Early post-school outcomes of Indigenous youth : the role of literacy and numeracy /

by Nguyen, Nhi | National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth. Briefing paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2010 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Using data from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY), this briefing paper explores the impact of literacy and numeracy levels on the educational gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth. The paper focuses on the early post-school outcomes of Indigenous and non-Indigenous young people between 1999 and 2007. Raising the levels of literacy and numeracy for Indigenous youth would help to improve some of their educational outcomes. However, many Indigenous young people face multiple disadvantages, such as poor access to post-school education and poor health, in addition to low literacy and numeracy levels, which subsequently affect their outcomes.Availability: (1)

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)

Effective measures for school-to-work transition in the vocational education system : lessons from Australia to Korea /

by Jung, Tae-Hwa | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Misko, Josie | Kisun, Lee | Dawe, Susan.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2004Description: PDF.Summary: The importance of close connections between vocational education and training (VET) systems and industry is highlighted in this report. The report finds that any system of entry-level training, which aims to help students make a successful transition from school to work, must have support mechanisms and frameworks in place to enable accurate assessment of industry and labour market needs. From Australia's perspective, the Korean experience provides useful insights to improving school retention rates, and establishing formal pathways for VET students who are not undertaking apprenticeships and traineeships. From the Korean perspective, useful lessons include developing inter-sectoral linkages between industry and education, applying flexible teaching and training methods, implementing a national qualifications framework, and introducing apprenticeship-type arrangements.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Employing young workers : how well are we managing them?

by Tresize-Brown, Mary | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2004Description: vi, 24 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2004 Includes bibliographical references (p. 18)Summary: The basis for conducting this project developed primarily from the experience of working with young people in the Brotherhood’s Transition Project. We learned from our observations of young people in employment that some employers take a fragmented approach to managing young people in the workplace. While a number of employers have implemented practices and procedures with young people in mind, others seem to have given little thought to adopting methods specific to managing young employees, particularly those in their first job.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Using the 1995 cohort of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth, this project examines how long it takes for young people to move from education to work, and identifies factors that distinguish people who are able to move quickly into employment from those who take many months to find work. The report finds that, compared to their better educated peers, young people who do not finish Year 12 take significantly longer to get a job.Availability: (1)
