by Myconos, George | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2011Description: viii, 47 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF | Summary Notes: Includes "A path to re-engagement : evaluating the first year of a Community VCAL education program for young people : research summary."Summary: In Frankston, the Brotherhood of St Laurence has developed a Community VCAL program tailored for young people aged 15 to 18 who have experienced barriers to mainstream education. Students undertake the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning - a Years 11 and 12 course which combines classroom tuition with vocational training and work placements - in a community setting rather than in a school. The evaluation of the inaugural year found that, notwithstanding some challenges, the program made a significant difference to the educational opportunities of most of its students. ; VICTORIAN CERTIFICATE OF APPLIED LEARNING (VCAL)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A taste for learning : evaluating a pre-Community VCAL program

by Myconos, George | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: viii, 28 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 27-28Summary: This report evaluates a pre-Community VCAL 'Taster' course offered at the Brotherhood of St Laurence's Frankston High Street Centre. The course engaged young people who were seriously disaffected with mainstream secondary school education, and who were facing their transition to adulthood without having acquired important skills. It provided valuable literacy, numeracy, vocational and social skills tuition, as well as the experience these students needed to make judgments about continuing vocational or further education. ; VICTORIAN CERTIFICATE OF APPLIED LEARNING (VCAL)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Are young people's educational outcomes linked to their sense of control? /

by Baron, Juan D | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Cobb-Clark, Deborah.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne Institute working paper ; no. 5/10.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2010 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This paper analyzes the link between young people's sense (locus) of control over their lives and their investments in education. We find that young people with a more internal locus of control have a higher probability of finishing secondary school and, conditional on completion, meeting the requirements to obtain a university entrance rank. Moreover, those with an internal locus of control who obtain a university entrance rank achieve somewhat higher rankings than do their peers who have a more external locus of control. Not surprisingly, there is a negative relationship between growing up in disadvantage and educational outcomes. However, this effect does not appear to operate indirectly by increasing the likelihood of having a more external locus of control. In particular, we find no significant relationship between family welfare history and young people's locus of control.Availability: (1)

Career advice in Australian secondary schools : use and usefulness /

by Rothman, Sheldon | Australian Council for Educational Research | Hillman, Kylie.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Council for Educational Research 2008Description: p. 51.Other title: Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth. Research Report ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2008 This report forms part of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth analytical program conducted by ACER under contract to the Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training (DEST). Bibliography : p. 29-30 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This report examines young people's participation in career advice activities while at school and their perceptions of the usefulness of the advice they receive. The data are from the 2003 15 year old cohort of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY). Most members of this LSAY Y03 cohort were in Year 10 in 2003. The present report examines how much career advice students accessed in Years 10, 11 and 12 across three years of data collection (2003-2005). A smaller group of the cohort is followed each year; this group was in Year 10 in 2003, Year 11 in 2004, and Year 12 in 2005. For this group of more than 5000 young people, analyses were conducted to determine what influences their perceptions of the usefulness of career advice while at school.Availability: (1)

Career moves : expectations and destinations of NSW senior secondary students /

by Marks, Gary | Australian Council for Educational Research | Underwood, Catherine | Rothman, Sheldon.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. NSW Board of Vocational Education and Training 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2011 Bibliography pp. 99-100 Appendix pp. 101-108 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The purpose of the project is to examine senior New South Wales students' expected educational and occupational pathways. It specifically analysed the post-school destinations of both Year 12 completers and early school leavers (or school non-completers) in the first year after leaving school and the educational and occupational expectations of students still at school. The expectations of university and vocational post-school study or training among students at school are compared to the expectations of their parents and teachers. Students' expectations are also compared to the actual participation at university and VET of the generally older cohort of school leavers. Students' Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) scores are analysed among students who gained an ATAR score. The report also documents students' expected occupations at age 30. Other aspects of the school-to-work transition analysed in this report include: influences on course selection, early school leaving, plans for further study, course level and field of study among those in post-school study or training, employment, unemployment and the main activities of young people not in full-time work education or work. The report documents many aspects of the school-to-work transition by gender, region, school sector and socioeconomic background. The report is based on data obtained from a representative survey conducted in late 2010 of approximately 6,100 NSW students who were in Years 10, 11 and 12 in 2009. The data also include information from parents (from one in three families) and teachers and principals at the sampled schools.Availability: (1)
