Are young people's educational outcomes linked to their sense of control? /

by Baron, Juan D | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Cobb-Clark, Deborah.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne Institute working paper ; no. 5/10.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2010 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This paper analyzes the link between young people's sense (locus) of control over their lives and their investments in education. We find that young people with a more internal locus of control have a higher probability of finishing secondary school and, conditional on completion, meeting the requirements to obtain a university entrance rank. Moreover, those with an internal locus of control who obtain a university entrance rank achieve somewhat higher rankings than do their peers who have a more external locus of control. Not surprisingly, there is a negative relationship between growing up in disadvantage and educational outcomes. However, this effect does not appear to operate indirectly by increasing the likelihood of having a more external locus of control. In particular, we find no significant relationship between family welfare history and young people's locus of control.Availability: (1)

Preparing for what? : the administration of Youth Allowance Activity Agreements to young job seekers : paper presented at the Australian Social Policy Conference, Sydney, July 2003. /

by Jope, Sally | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Beaumont, Rosie.

Publisher: Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2003Description: 12 p., [11 p.] : ill.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: July 2003 Paper presented to the Australian Social Policy Conference, Sydney, 9-11 July 2003. Includes presentation notes. 2 copiesSummary: Youth Allowance policy recognises that job search is not always the most appropriate activity for unemployed young people and further education, training and skill building can assist them into employment. Therefore, more flexible activity testing has been introduced to enable combinations of and movement between study and work. Preparing for Work Agreements (PFWA) are prepared in negotiation with the unemployed young person prior to payment of Youth Allowance. They are to include activities the job seeker is required to undertake to remain eligible for income support and what Centrelink will offer the job seeker to improve their chances of employment. This study investigated the administration of YA PFWAs by Centrelink and the extent to which they had been tailored to meet the individual needs of young job seekers (18-20 years). In-depth interviews were conducted with YA job seekers, with youth workers and with Centrelink officers. We found young people generally did not understand the purpose of PFWAs and did not know they could negotiate the activities included within them. Their agreements mainly contained job search activities few 'capacitybuilding' activities. We concluded that PFWAs might motivate young people to look for work but do not contribute to increased capacity to get work or developwork-related skills.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).

Towards a fair and decent social security system : submission to Senate inquiry into adequacy of the allowance system for jobseekers and others / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Horn, Michael.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2012Description: 33 p. PDF.Other title: BSL submission to the Senate inquiry into the adequacy of the allowance payment system.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Current Newstart and Youth Allowance levels are insufficient to enable individuals relying on those payments to live with dignity and security. They fail to keep jobseekers and other income support recipients out of poverty. They fail to guard against social exclusion and financial vulnerability. Current payment levels fail to enable individuals to access affordable housing and protect against homelessness and may in fact undermine broader efforts to facilitate transitions into paid employment. The present Newstart Allowance (NSA) falls short of community expectations within Australia and is extremely low compared to income support of jobseekers in other developed countries. Based on these assessments we argue that the level of Newstart and Youth Allowance (YA) fails to meet any reasonable test of adequacy.Availability: (1)
