Remember the young ones: Improving career opportunities for Britain’s young people | IPPR

Remember the young ones: Improving career opportunities for Britain’s young people | IPPR | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

This report looks at five critical elements of the school-to-work transition for young people – the role of employers, vocational education, apprenticeships, careers guidance, and the benefits system – and at lessons the UK can learn from European economies with better youth employment records.

A long period without work at a young age can have a long-lasting effect on a person’s life chances, leading to a higher future likelihood of unemployment and lower future earnings. For this reason, UK policymakers should be particularly worried about the present level of youth unemployment. There are currently 868,000 young people aged 16–24 unemployed in the UK, and 247,000 of them have been looking for work for over a year.

This is not simply due to the financial crash and recession. While the last six or seven years have been particularly tough for the latest generation of young people, even before the financial crisis many of those entering the labour market for the first time were struggling to compete with older workers for jobs. This suggests that even a full-blown economic recovery is unlikely to solve the problem of youth unemployment in the UK.

EUROPA - PRESS RELEASES - Education and training is not up to the job, say quarter of Europeans in survey

EUROPA - PRESS RELEASES - Education and training is not up to the job, say quarter of Europeans in survey | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

A new Eurobarometer survey on the 'European Area of Skills and Qualifications' (Special Eurobarometer 417) shows also that around a quarter (23%) of EU citizens feel that their education or training has not provided them with the skills to find a job in line with their qualifications. While over half of the respondents (56%) think their qualifications would be recognised in other Member States, 6% tried to work or study in another Member State but were unable to do so, either because their qualifications were not recognised by their prospective employer or education institution, or because the respondents lacked information about recognition of their qualifications abroad.

 

The survey's findings are echoed by the results of a separate Commission online consultation, 'Towards a European Area for Skills and Qualifications', aimed at education and training specialists. It collated views on the obstacles faced by people in having their skills and qualifications recognised across Europe and found that there is strong support for action to simplify European tools for recognition of skills and qualifications, to make them more coherent and easier to use, and to ensure a stronger focus on the needs of pupils, students, workers and employers. Respondents also call for more emphasis in education and training on what is learnt rather than the number of hours of instruction.

 

"Our objective is simple: everyone in Europe should be able to have their skills and qualifications understood and recognised, within and across national borders, by employers and educational institutions. They need to be recognised in a fair, comparable and transparent way, so that people's skills and qualifications improve their employability or open the way for further learning," said Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.

Teaching People Not Just to Fish, But to Build Businesses Too is Key | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
BANGLADESH - As USAID’s annual letter this year notes, in development it is no longer enough to teach a farmer to grow a new crop—or in this case, to fish. Our work isn’t done until we help a farmer learn to run a successful business too. This is precisely what is happening in Bangladesh, writes Dylan Butler, Information Officer, USAID Office of Food for Peace.

Moreover, sustainability aspects will be discussed as well as how a circular economy can be applied in business cases. Large vs small-scale aquaponic systems and high tech vs low tech aquaponics will be compared, and the concept urban aquaponics will be introduced.

COST Action FA1305 is offering 15 places on the training school on a competitive basis. Successful applicants will be offered a maximum grant of €1120 as a contribution towards the costs of travel, accommodation and meals. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 12 August.

MACUMBA SUMMER SCHOOL 2015: "SAMPLING, ISOLATION & CULTIVATION OF MARINE MICROORGANISMS"

12 – 24 July 2015, Texel, The Netherlands

The MaCuMBA consortium is pleased to announce that the project will host a summer school on sampling, isolation and cultivation of marine microorganisms in July 2015. During this two-week course, participants will have the opportunity to interact with experts in the field and obtain first-hand experience of isolation and cultivation design along with various other techniques.

 

Course description

Morning lectures will be given by leading microbiologists who will present their ideas about the design of culture media, single cell isolation techniques, identification, and screening for bioactive compounds and their application by the biotechnology industry.

Demonstrations and hands-on practical work related to these topics will be carried out in the afternoons. In small groups, the participants will discuss and practice different isolation techniques for microbes including open seawater, marine sediments and substrates (e.g. seaweeds). A matrix of different marine systems, isolation techniques and culturing methods will be offered to the participants. Participants will design appropriate cultivation media and growth circumstances for photoautotrophic and chemoauto- and heterotrophic microorganisms. Enrichment cultures, dilution to extinction, batch and continuous cultivation, plate and cellto-cell communication will be part of the training. Aerobic and anaerobic cultivation will be possible under different environmental conditions. State-of-the-art identification techniques will be available for processing the samples.

 

Target audience

Technicians, PhD students and Postdoctoral scientists with background knowledge in microbiology (required) are invited to apply. The course is open to both MaCuMBA project partners and external applicants.

 

Registration deadline is 16th March 2015.

Introduction to mathematical modelling for the environmental and biological sciences

Introduction to mathematical modelling for the environmental and biological sciences | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

A 5-day course at the University of Stirling, School of Natural Sciences
Monday 16th to Friday 20th February 2015


Designed for PhD students and early-stage researchers with a biological background who wish to develop interdisciplinary skills in mathematical modelling for the life sciences.

The course aims to meet the needs of students in the biological sciences who are increasingly turning to mathematical modelling in the era of big data, the three Rs of animal testing, and remote sensing, but who may lack the background necessary to create their own mathematical or statistical models.


This course, run by mathematicians, physicists and ecologists with experience in epidemiology and terrestrial and marine ecology, will provide an introduction to basic modelling concepts and a guide to using common skills. You will be guided through the key steps of researching the question, formulating the model framework, parameterising the model, and model criticism.
