2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
This report focuses on Year 12 students who apply to go to university but are not offered a place. This group is commonly referred to as indicating a level of?unmet demand? for university. The size and nature of the group are potentially important considerations in planning higher education. The report compares the?Applied, no offer? group with other groups of young people. It analyses the LSAY cohort that was first sampled in Year 9 in 1998. Most were in Year 12 in 2001, and their post-school activities were analysed for 2002 and 2003. The report analyses the characteristics and activities of six groups of young people who comprise the LSAY cohort."
Young people outside the labour force and full-time education activities and profiles by Kylie Hillman( file )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 129 libraries worldwide
This report focuses on a group of young people who are not involved in full-time education or the labour force, that is, they are not studying full-time, nor are they working or looking for work. The data used in this report are drawn from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY), which studies the progress of cohorts of young Australians as they make the transitions from secondary school to work and further education and training, beginning in Year 9. Two groups of young people who had experienced some time outside the labour force and fulltime education were investigated in this report. The first and larger group consisted of those young people from the 1995 LSAY cohort who had not been involved in full-time education or the labour force for at least one month between January 1997 and December 2003. The second group consisted of those young men and women who were not involved in education and training or the labour force at the time of the annual surveys from 1999 to 2003."

Varieties of learning : the interface between higher education and vocational education and training by Australia( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
A wide range of issues and challenges facing the Australian higher education sector was raised by the Ministerial discussion paper 'Higher education at the crossroads' (indexed at TD/TNC 71.381). This issues paper explores those issues which relate to the interface between the higher education and vocational education and training (VET) sectors. It looks at some of the barriers to further partnerships such as the differences in the learning and assessment processes between the sectors and the lack of information for students about the available options. It begins by describing the two sectors, the factors shaping the relationship and the nature of the interface. It then goes on to consider the following key issues: credit transfer; articulation/joint courses; dual sector universities; multi-sector campuses; infrastructure sharing in regional areas; research collaboration; qualifications issues; and the impact of future demand on both sectors. The paper concludes with some alternatives for ways forward to strengthen inter-sectoral links
