One of the significant policy agendas of both the State and Federal governments is Social Inclusion. As a result of the Bradley Review of Higher Education, all Universities will be allocated targets to increase their enrolments of students from a low Socio-economic background. It will be critical for Swinburne to have a clear understanding how we will engage with such groups and build educational opportunities. As a dual-sector University, Swinburne is ideally placed to address these issues, having the capability of providing pathways for a very broad range of students and to ensure they are adequately prepared to succeed.Availability: (1)

Australian vocational education and training statistics : employers use and views of the VET system 2019

by National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2019Description: 21 p. : PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: This publication presents information on employers’ use and views of the vocational education and training (VET) system. The findings relate to the various ways in which Australian employers use the VET system to meet their skill needs and their satisfaction with the training. Australian employers can engage with the VET system in three main ways, by: having jobs that require vocational qualifications ; having apprentices and trainees ; using nationally recognised training. Also presented in this publication is information on employers’ use and satisfaction with unaccredited training, and recruitment difficulties experienced in the last 12 months. The figures in this publication are derived from the Survey of Employers’ Use and Views of the VET System. A total of 7007 interviews were conducted with Australian employers between February and June 2019 and the results relate to employers’ training experiences in the 12 months preceding their interview. Note for the purposes of this publication, nationally recognised training excludes training that was part of an apprenticeship or traineeship as employers’ use and views of apprentices and trainees is reported separately Availability: (1)

Challenges for Australian education : results from PISA 2009 /

by Thomson, Sue | Australian Council for Educational Research | De Bortoli, Lisa | Nicholas, Marina | Hillman, Kylie | Buckley, Sarah.

Publisher: Camberwell, Vic. Australian Council for Educational Research 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The reading literacy of Australian 15-year-old students has fallen sharply over the past decade, results from the 2009 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) reveal. The Australian national report shows Australia?s results have also slipped in mathematics but held ground in science. ; PISA measures how well 15-year-olds from across the globe are prepared to use their knowledge and skills in reading, mathematics and science to meet real-life challenges near the end of compulsory schooling. Sixty-five OECD and partner countries took part in PISA 2009, including a nationally representative sample of around 14,000 Australian students from 353 schools. Australia has now participated in four cycles of PISA since its inception in 2000. ; Australian students are still performing well above the OECD average but their results in reading literacy and mathematical literacy have declined significantly over recent years. Australian students scored an average of 515 points on the 2009 reading assessments, compared to the OECD average of 493 points. Australia?s overall performance declined by 13 score points from 2000 to 2009. The decline is primarily among higher achieving students and is more evident in some states than others. ; In mathematics Australian students achieved an average score of 514 points, significantly higher than the OECD average of 496. The result was similar to that achieved in 2006 but down on the 2003 result. The performance of Australian students in scientific literacy remained unchanged from PISA 2006 to PISA 2009 with an average score of 527 points. ; Very significant gaps in achievement remain between Australian students by gender, Indigenous status, location and wealth. In some cases these are equivalent to several years of schooling.Availability: (1)
