'Swimming upstream' : young people and service provision under Job Services Australia /

by Rose, Jen | Youth Affairs Council of Victoria | Morstyn, Lisa | Tudehope, Alice.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Youth Affairs Council of Victoria 2011Description: 44 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2011 Bibliography : p. 42-44 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: YACVic has examined the provision of employment services to vulnerable or disadvantaged young people under the Job Services Australia (JSA) program. We have chosen to research this area because of the high rates of youth unemployment in Australia. As of June 2011, young people aged between 15 and 24 years were experiencing an unemployment rate of 11.0 per cent, significantly higher than that of the broader Australian community (4.9 per cent). Our report seeks to assess whether the JSA program is currently meeting the needs of young people in Australia. The report confirms the importance of all generalist and specialised youth JSA service providers adopting best practices when working with young people seeking employment. In addition, the report recommends that the JSA program provides greater recognition of social or non-vocational outcomes achieved by JSA providers for vulnerable young people and that the JSA program encourage JSA providers to adopt an integrated, flexible and highly individualised approach when working with vulnerable young people.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
