Against the odds : influences on the post-school success of 'low performers' /

by Thomson, Sue | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Hiliman, Kylie.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: 36 p. : ill., graphs, tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : pp. 32 Appendices : pp. 33-36 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The link between academic achievement and labour market outcomes is well established. But how well does a student's achievement in a test predict their later success in life? This study examines this question, with 'success' considered to encompass satisfaction with life together with the extent to which young people are fully occupied with education, employment or a combination of these. Low performers in mathematics in the 2003 Programme for International Student Assessment were the focus. The study found that 'low performing' status has little impact on future success. Further, students who saw the value of mathematics for their future success were more likely to achieve this success.Availability: (1)

All things being equal? Equality and diversity in careers education, information, advice and guidance /

by Hutchinson, Jo | University of Derby | Rolfe, Heather | Moore, Nicki.

Publisher: Manchester, U.K. Equality and Human Rights Commission 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Equality and Human Rights Commission Research report ; no. 71.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 119-130 Appendices pp. 131-151 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: In its education chapter, the Commission's first Triennial Review of evidence on inequality, How Fair is Britain's Equality, Human Rights and Good Relations in 2010, found that educational attainment has been transformed in recent years. Around half of young people are now getting good qualifications at 16 (5+ A-C GCSEs or equivalent including English and Maths) and, in 2008/09, 2.4 million students enrolled in higher education in the UK - a considerable change from a time when educational opportunities were only available to a minority of young people. However, the evidence shows that educational attainment continues to be strongly associated with socio-economic background. Stereotypical information and guidance can limit young people's options and aspirations at an early age. Careers advice often reinforces traditional choices and young people have limited information on the pay advantages of nontraditional routes. Nearly one in four young people say that they have not had enough information to make choices for their future. This rises to just under a quarter of disabled young people.Availability: (1)

Alternatives to secure youth detention in Tasmania /

by Daly, Elizabeth | Commissioner for Children Tasmania.

Publisher: Commissioner for Children Tasmania 2013Description: 156 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Detention has adverse effects on young people's employment outcomes, brings them into contact with other offenders and removes them from their families, education and communities. Conversely, non-custodial programs have been shown to be very effective in reducing juvenile recidivism. Detention should therefore be used sparingly and as a last resort. ; It is recognised that for a small cohort of young people, detention may be necessary - particularly to ensure the community is afforded protection from illegal behaviour. ; The 'last resort' principle can only operate to reduce detention rates where there is an effective package of alternatives to secure detention available to judicial officers.

Amplifying the voices of young refugees. /

by Refugee Council of Australia.

Publisher: Sydney, [N.S.W.] Refugee Council of Australia 2009Description: 26 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Abridged report 2009 Report coordinator: Louise Olliff. Settlement Policy OfficerSummary: During 2008-09, the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) undertook a literature review and a series of youth consultations across three Australian states and the Australian Capital Territory, with the aim of developing a targeted and informed strategy for the ongoing engagement of refugee young people in advocating to have their needs and concerns addressed and ideas recognised at a national level. People aged less than 30 years on arrival now comprise the significant majority and a growing proportion of new arrivals to Australia under the Refugee and Humanitarian Program. This project is premised upon the belief that amplification of the voices of young refugees and humanitarian entrants within national forums, such as RCOA's own annual community consultations, will facilitate the development of advocacy strategies, policy recommendations and project initiatives that are informed by and responsive to the priorities of a key and currently underheard population. RCOA believes that this will in turn lead to the development of more sensitive public policies to address their concerns, while also positively influencing broader community understandings of the experiences and contributions of young refugees.Availability: (1)

An outline of National Standards for Out-of-Home Care : a priority project under the National Framework for Protecting Australia's Children : 2009-2020 /

by Australia. Department of Families, Housing, Community services and Indigenous Affairs.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australia. Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2010Summary: The National Standards for Out-of-Home Care have been designed to deliver consistency and drive improvements in the quality of care provided to children and young people. The 13 National Standards focus on the key factors that directly influence better outcomes for those living in out-of-home care. The measurement of and reporting on, outcomes is a major feature of the refining and improving of the National Standards over the long term. Evidence shows that the experiences and quality of care received in out-of-home care can be critical to determining whether a child or young person can recover from the effects of trauma and more able to access opportunities in life.Availability: (1)

Annual transitions between labour market states for young Australians /

by Buddelmeyer, Hielke | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Marks, Gary.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 35 INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: Having a choice of transition pathways from school to work, further education or training gives young people the best chance of success. Using the 1995 cohort of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth, this study looks at the role post-school qualifications play in the year-by-year movement between labour market states by young people. Higher post-school qualifications are found to increase the chances of being permanently employed and provide protection against being persistently unemployed or out of the labour force.Availability: (1)

These two reports use data obtained from young people who were in Year 9 at school in 1995 and whose educational and occupational activities were traced each year thereafter. Student characteristics, fields of training, commencement and completion rates, and reasons for discontinuing are all explored. This paper, published by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), is part of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth research program.Availability: (1)

Approaches to supporting young people not in education, employment or training : a review /

by Nelson, Julie | National Foundation for Educational Research | O'Donnell, Lisa.

Publisher: Slough, Berkshire U.K. National Foundation for Educational Research 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: This review forms one of a suite of four literature reviews that have been completed under the From Education to Employment theme. These reviews collectively identify strategies for assisting young people at risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training) to make effective transitions into learning or employment post 16. In 2011 one in five (22.3 per cent) young people aged 16-24 were unemployed (a total of 1.04 million). A slightly lower, but still large, proportion (19.2 per cent) of young people aged 16-24 were NEET. All four reviews build upon a large body of research on the reasons why young people are NEET, and on recent NFER research, which presented a 'segmentation' analysis identifying three discrete sub-categories of NEET young people aged 16-17Availability: (1)

Are Active Labour Market Programmes least effective where they are most needed? : The case of the British new deal for young people /

by McVicar, Duncan | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Podivinsky, Jan. M.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2010Description: 44p. : ill., graphs.Other title: Melbourne Institute Working Paper No. 16/10.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: One view of Active Labour Market Programmes (ALMPs) is that they are 'most needed' in slack labour markets, where more unemployed workers require help finding jobs. But ALMPs might be less effective in such labour markets because there are fewer vacancies with which programme participants can match. In this paper we use data over a nine year period, across 300 local labour markets, to show that the unemployment exit and job entry impacts of participating in a mandatory ALMP for unemployed young people 'the British New Deal for Young People (NDYP)' were negatively correlated with unemployment rates.Availability: (1)
