In their words: student choice in training markets - Victorian examples | Education Reports | Scoop.it
"This research offers insights into the options available to individuals as they navigate the VET market. Importantly, this study directly represents the voice of students, asking how their choices were made and whether their choice was sufficiently ‘informed’. The student voice is contrasted with recent literature and data on measures of choice. Implications for policy and practice are explored, as are strategies for improving and broadening choice. The focus here is on examples from Victoria, the first state to initiate market reforms, by means of the Victorian Training Guarantee."

Getting the most out of Gonski 2.0: The evidence base for school investments

Getting the most out of Gonski 2.0: The evidence base for school investments | Education Reports | Scoop.it
"Schools should invest in evidence-based, cost-effective policies to improve literacy and numeracy results. Early literacy and numeracy, giving teachers fewer classes, and classroom management training are three evidence-based, cost-effective investments. Reducing class sizes and more education technology are not supported by the evidence."

New ALIA report forecasts more jobs for librarians by 2022 | Australian Library and Information Association

New ALIA report forecasts more jobs for librarians by 2022 | Australian Library and Information Association | Education Reports | Scoop.it
Wednesday 11 October 2017 Canberra: The fourth annual ALIA LIS Education, Skills and Employment Trend Report has been released by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). The report seeks to provide students, educators, employees and employers with an understanding of the national landscape and inform ALIA's actions as the sector’s peak professional body. The report shows that over the five years from November 2010 to November 2015, there were 43.5% fewer Librarian positions in the workforce; 16.3% fewer Technician positions, and 12.4% fewer Library Assistant positions. However, looking ahead to May 2022, the Department of Employment predicts a 15.6% employment rise for Librarians, a relatively stable number of Library Technician positions and a drop of 13% for Library Assistant positions. There is expected to be a modest increase in the number of qualified positions available over the next five years, but a significant decrease in the number of positions for staff without a library and information science qualification. The library and information sector remains an attractive job prospect but there is undoubtedly competition for jobs. The workforce tends to be fairly static, with a relatively small number of vacancies occurring through staff turnover, people leaving the sector and the creation of new positions. Sue McKerracher, Chief Executive Office of ALIA, said in response to the report that: 'The real news is that, after five years of decline, the job prospects for librarians are picking up. We won’t see the entire increase coming through immediately, but there should be good news for qualified professionals seeking new positions over the next five years.’ About the Australian Library and Information Association The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) is the professional organisation for the Australian library and information services sector. With 5,000 members across Australia, we provide the national voice of the profession in the development, promotion and delivery of quality library and information services, through leadership, advocacy and mutual support. www.alia.org.au Contact: Brendan Eichholzer, Publishing and Communications Coordinator: brendan.eichholzer@alia.org.au | 02 6215 8239

Building Skills for All in Australia - Policy Insights from the Survey of Adult Skills - en - OECD

Building Skills for All in Australia - Policy Insights from the Survey of Adult Skills - en - OECD | Education Reports | Scoop.it
Data, policy advice and research on Australia including economy, education, employment, environment, health, tax, trade, GDP, unemployment rate, inflation and PISA.,

Australia’s overall performance in the Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC) ranges from average to very good. However, three million adults, representing one-fifth of the working age population, have low literacy and/or numeracy skills. Building Skills for All in Australia describes the characteristics of the low-skilled and discusses the consequences that low skills have on economic and social development for both individuals and Australian society. The review examines the strengths of the Australian skills system, highlighting the strong basic skills found in the migrant population, widespread proficiency in use of ICT and the positive role of workplaces in skills development. The study explores, moreover, the challenges facing the skills system and what can be done to enhance basic skills through education, training or other workplace measures. One of a series of studies on low basic skills, the review presents new analyses of PIAAC data and concludes with a series of policy recommendations. These include: increasing participation of women in STEM fields, addressing underperformance of post-secondary VET students and preventing drop-out, improving pre-apprenticeships, enhancing mathematics provision within secondary education and tackling poor access to childcare facilities for young mothers.

PISA in Focus N°76 - How do schools compensate for socio-economic disadvantage?

PISA in Focus N°76 - How do schools compensate for socio-economic disadvantage? | Education Reports | Scoop.it

"As educators know well, there are many barriers to learning that originate outside of school, such as those that arise from socio-economic disadvantage. In many education systems, the concentration of disadvantaged students in certain schools poses an additional challenge. Yet it is also true that schools with effective learning environments and high-quality resources can compensate, at least partially, for larger social inequalities. If school systems are to level the playing field, so that all children, regardless of their family background, are offered the best possible education, then the types of practices and resources that are related to better student performance need to be used in every school, not just in advantaged schools."
