by Crettenden, Angela | Australian Psychological Society | Zerk, Danielle | Farrall, Edwina | Arnold, Lynette.

Publisher: Underdale, S.A. University of South Australia. Australian Centre for Child Protection 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography: p. 63-64Summary: Child abuse and neglect, and their consequences for children, their families and carers, are issues which regularly confront psychologists in their daily work. Given the magnitude of these problems in our community, the Australian Psychological Society (APS) believes it is vital to ensure that psychologists are well equipped with the knowledge and skills to protect and nurture vulnerable children and their families. The Australian Centre for Child Protection in collaboration with the Australian Psychological Society sent a purpose developed curriculum mapping survey to 37 universities that offered Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited programs in 2008. Survey responses provided information about undergraduate, fourth year and postgraduate psychology programs across most States and Territories of Australia. Results of the study showed that students in most accredited psychology programs were exposed to some child protection related content as part of their undergraduate, fourth year, or postgraduate education.Availability: (1)

Skilling and reskilling for our (greener) future /

by Karmel, Tom | National Centre for Vocational Resource.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Research 2010Description: 17 p. : ill. tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented to the 2009 Economic and Social Outlook Conference, University of Melbourne, 5?6 November 2009Summary: This paper was presented at the Economic and Social Outlook Conference, 5/6 November 2009, ; at the University of Melbourne. It takes a sceptical view of the push for 'green skills', arguing that skills required in the labour market evolve relatively slowly, and that the way business operates is driven by changing costs, new technologies and new regulations, with sustainability being only one of many factors. In addition, the presentation provides some data on 'sustainable' courses in tertiary education and then looks at three areas which have implications for the public investment in education and training: the levels of skill acquired through apprenticeships and traineeships, the pay-off to undertaking VET qualifications, and the role of diplomas in the labour market.Availability: (1)

by H rault, Nicolas | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Zakirova, Rezida | Buddelmeyer, Hielke.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 39-40 Appendices : p. 41-57 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Amongst recent initiatives aimed at lifting Australia's productivity has been a push for a greater number of course completions in both the vocational education and training and higher education sectors. With this, it could be assumed, come benefits for the individual such as better job opportunities and higher wages. Using the 1995 and 1998 cohorts of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth, this study looked at whether participating in or completing a post-secondary education qualification led to wage benefits for young people. The study finds that not only completing a post-secondary course but participating in one results in higher wages.Availability: (1)

The likelihood of completing a VET qualification: A model-based approach /

by KEVIN MARK | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | TOM KARMEL.

Publisher: [Adelaide, S.A.] National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER). 2010Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This paper estimates vocational education and training (VET) course-completion rates, in order to fill a gap in performance measures for the VET sector. ; The technique we use is to track all VET course enrolments within a three-year window, centred on the year of interest. Then, using an absorbing Markov chain model for a VET course enrolment, we estimate the proportion of VET course enrolments commencing in the year of interest that will eventually be completed. This approach allows us to estimate the completion rate without having to longitudinally track course enrolments over a long period of time.Availability: (1)
