Getting the measure of training : a report on training statistics in Britain by Alan Felstead( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the prominence of work-based training in British national policy debate, published statistics fail to give solid data on training volume or quality. The Labor Force Survey, commonly used to give a picture of increasing training, shows proportions of training over any 4-week period rose from 10.8 percent in 1985 to 15.2 percent in 1994. Closer analysis indicates that, spread over all employees, average time spent on off-the-job training was 39 minutes per week per employee in 1985 and 40 minutes in 1994. Use of proxy interviewing techniques makes reliability of the participation rate questionable. Current surveys provide little useful information about trends in training quality and none about trends in training sponsorship. Proposed typologies of training are based on training quantity, quality, and sponsorship. To develop this proposition, two surveys have been conducted--one focused on individuals, the other on employing organizations--to examine the quantity and quality of employee training in Britain and show the occurrence of much undetected training through teach-yourself methods. The individual survey included interviews with a random sample of 1,539; the employer survey received responses from 149 of 742 large employers and 313 of 1,570 small employers. Findings indicated the following: 34 percent of training is certified; over 80 percent of employees believe they are getting transferable skills; 63 percent of employers fully fund training; the majority of employees felt the aim of training was to improve their skills for doing their job; and relatively few felt their mobility would be affected by their training. An appendix contains key survey questions. Contains 20 references. (Ylb)

Graduate Jobs in OECD countries : Analysis Using A New Indicator Based on High Skills Use by Golo Henseke( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: A recurring issue for education policy-makers is the labour market effect of the long-term global mass expansion of higher education, particularly on what is a @0394@03C6graduate job@0394@03C7. The traditional assumption is that graduate jobs are virtually coterminous with professional and managerial occupations. A new indicator of graduate jobs, termed ISCO(HE)2008, is derived using task-based data drawn from the The Survey of Adult Skills, a product of the OECD Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC). The new classification shows that several jobs in ISCO major group 3 @0394@03C6Technicians and Associate Professionals@0394@03C7 are also classed as graduate jobs in many countries. Altogether, 27.6% of jobs are classified as graduate jobs in the 15 OECD country-regions for which we have data. Considerable variation in the proportion of graduate jobs is found across industries and countries and in the short period from 2011 to 2013, the proportion of graduate jobs has become more diverse across countries
Lions behind the shields : bravado of deceit, anger, sexism, and racism by Francis Green( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louisianan Frank Grima is only ten when he has his first encounter with a white policeman. Shocked at the anger the officer displays simply because Frank is of another color, he runs home to his mama, who makes him faithfully promise that he will always obey the law. Eleven years later, Frank joins the Acadian City police force--young, naïve, and hungry for knowledge. It is August 28, 1970, and Frank knows he has no choice but to strive for excellence. His life depends on it. Vietnam veteran Peter Hillman is hired the same day as Frank. Although he has good intentions of rendering justice and making a difference in his community, Peter carries psychological baggage that has the potential to greatly impact his career. As the two recruits begin protecting and serving, they soon learn that racism, anger, and cynicism are prevalent among the ranks. Even though Frank shuns the drama, controversy, and endless dilemmas that surround the force, being a black cop in the Deep South is more challenging than he ever imagined
