2010 update of the European inventory on validation of non-formal and informal learning - final report /

by Hawley, Jo | European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training | Souto Otero, Manuel | Duchemin, Claire.

Publisher: Thessaloniki, Greece European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 37-38Summary: The European Inventory provides a unique record on how validation is already being used at national, regional and local level to address issues relating to lifelong learning, employment and social exclusion. This is particularly important in the context of the current economic crisis, which has accelerated the importance of validation drivers identified in the 2007 Inventory, such as the need for effective re-deployment of the adult population into employment. A number of countries have recognised the role validation has to play in addressing skills shortages and in supporting those facing redundancy to identify and pursue an alternative career pathway. Other initiatives recognise the role of validation in combating social exclusion, by empowering 'the low qualified' and other disadvantaged groups to identify and understand their own competences and potential.Availability: (1)

A bridge between two worlds : leadership among resettled Sudanese youth in an American city /

by Gale, Lacey | United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees 2011Description: PDF.Other title: New issues in refugee research. Research paper ; no. 211.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography pp. 22-26Summary: Humanitarian efforts are often focused on children in conflict, since the international legal definitions create a practical framework for addressing child-specific needs. Youth have different needs than children, however, and possess more potential to influence both the society around them and their home communities. Resettled youth face multiple transitions simultaneously, from conflict to third country resettlement and from child to adult. Their needs include not only the legal aspects of protection, but also the social and economic aspects, noted in UNHCR's Age, Gender and Diversity Mainstreaming strategy as the spheres in which most rights violations of persons of concern occur. The goal of this case study is to map resettled refugee youth participation and leadership in a particular context and to discuss how these findings apply to a broader humanitarian youth agenda. It became apparent over the course of this project that UNHCR is in the process of defining a discrete policy for youth. This case study identifies a cohort of young leaders in Maine who, along with their peers in the United States as well as other resettlement countries, have the potential to contribute to the formulation of UNHCR's policy on youth.Availability: (1)

A good time for making work pay? : Taking stock of in-work benefits and related measures across the OECD /

by Immervoll, Herwig | Pearson, Mark.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs 2009Description: PDF.Summary: The twin problem of in-work poverty and persistent labour market difficulties of low-skilled individuals has been one of the most important drivers of tax-benefit policy reforms in OECD countries in recent years. Employment-conditional cash transfers to individuals facing particular labour-market challenges have been a core element of make-work-pay policies for some time and are now in use in more than half of the OECD countries. They are attractive because they redistribute to low-income groups while also creating additional work incentives. But like all social benefits, they have to be financed, which creates additional economic costs for some. This paper discusses the rationale for in-work benefits (IWB), summarises the main design features of programmes operated in OECD countries, and provides an update of what is known about their effectiveness in terms of reducing inequalities and creating employment. As policies aiming to promote self-sufficiency, wage subsidies and minimum wages share a number of the objectives associated with IWB measures. We review evidence on the effectiveness of minimum wages and wage subsidies and discuss links between these policies and IWBs. Finally, we outline some potential consequences of weakening labour markets for the effectiveness of make-work-pay policies.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
