Better skills, better jobs, better lives : a strategic approach to skills policies /

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: OECD Publishing 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 58-62Summary: Skills transform lives and drive economies. Without adequate investment in skills, people languish on the margins of society, technological progress does not translate into economic growth, and countries can no longer compete in an increasingly knowledge-based global society. People with poor skills face a much greater risk of experiencing economic disadvantage, and a higher likelihood of unemployment and dependency on social benefits. ; The OECD Skills Strategy provides a strategic framework to help countries understand more about how to invest in skills in a way that will transform lives and drive economies. It will help countries to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their existing national skills pool and skills systems, benchmark them internationally, and develop policies for improvement. In particular, the strategy provides the foundations upon which governments can work effectively with all interested parties - national, local and regional government, employers, employees, and learners.Availability: (1)

Creating a future direction for Australian vocational education and training : a discussion paper on the future of the VET system /

by Skills Australia.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Skills Australia 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2010 Includes bibliographical references SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Australia needs people to have more skills and to use them productively in the workplace. We also need higher rates of workforce participation. To help achieve these goals we need to increase demand from employers to take on and use these skills. This comes hand in hand with improving the depth, range and responsiveness of services the VET system provides. However, the uptake of training will not happen unless students, employers and the community have confidence in the quality and appropriateness of VET services and providers. This paper outlines a number of issues for discussion that can help set the direction Australian vocational education and training might take to achieve these objectives. Many of the issues will be familiar to those working in and with the sector. Skills Australia is keen to tap into this knowledge and experience to come up with workable solutions. We want to hear from people who use or have used the VET system- what are the directions the VET sector can take so it better meets your requirements?Availability: (1)

Effective measures for school-to-work transition in the vocational education system : lessons from Australia to Korea /

by Jung, Tae-Hwa | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Misko, Josie | Kisun, Lee | Dawe, Susan.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2004Description: PDF.Summary: The importance of close connections between vocational education and training (VET) systems and industry is highlighted in this report. The report finds that any system of entry-level training, which aims to help students make a successful transition from school to work, must have support mechanisms and frameworks in place to enable accurate assessment of industry and labour market needs. From Australia's perspective, the Korean experience provides useful insights to improving school retention rates, and establishing formal pathways for VET students who are not undertaking apprenticeships and traineeships. From the Korean perspective, useful lessons include developing inter-sectoral linkages between industry and education, applying flexible teaching and training methods, implementing a national qualifications framework, and introducing apprenticeship-type arrangements.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Exploring leadership in vocational education and training /

by European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training.

Publisher: Luxembourg Publications Office of the European Union 2011Description: PDF.Other title: European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Cat. No: TI-BA-11-003-EN-N doi:10.2801/36572 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: European policy on vocational education and training (VET) makes a strong link between the quality of education and the quality of teachers and trainers. Teaching staff are important stakeholders in implementing current VET reforms, and their training and professional development are crucial elements in ensuring quality. However, this working paper argues that the role of those managing and leading VET institutions must be more widely acknowledged and that the research base and policy initiatives specifically related to such staff ought to be strengthened. There is increasing evidence of the importance of leadership in education, though VET leaders have, so far, received only marginal attention. Leaders are crucial in implementing reforms and policy initiatives; they also serve as catalysts for change. The close links between VET and the labour market create specific opportunities for leadership but this has not yet been subjected to European research. This working paper presents some initial findings on leadership in VET in Europe. Cedefop's main objective for this paper is to raise awareness of VET leadership, introducing the topic and escorting it onto the European policy agenda. As the scope and depth of this paper is limited, it should be seen as an initial contribution to discussing leadership in VET.Availability: (1)
