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 95 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

Achievement in literacy and numeracy by Australian 14 year-olds, 1975-1998 by Sheldon Rothman( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
This LSAY research report examines student achievement scores on tests of reading comprehension and mathematics from five studies conducted between 1975 and 1998. The data are from five studies involving young people in Australian schools: the Australian Studies in School Performance in 1975, the Australian Studies of Student Performance in 1980, the 1989 Youth in Transition study and the 1995 and 1998 Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth studies. The report examines literacy and numeracy trends for all students and for smaller groups of students, with results reported by gender, language background, socioeconomic status and location. Multivariate analyses examine how influences on literacy and numeracy among 14- year-old students have changed between 1975 and 1998. [Executive summary, ed]
Influences on achievement in literacy and numeracy by Sheldon Rothman( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
This report examines the influence of a range of factors on the literacy and numeracy achievement levels of Year 9 students in Australia. The data were obtained from students in the first wave of LSAY and were analysed using hierarchical linear modelling to account for the sample design of LSAY. Modelling procedures followed a theoretical construct, incorporating variables believed to be important influences on achievement in literacy and numeracy. In addition, variables were selected to ensure consistency between cohorts and between literacy and numeracy. Included in the analyses were variables relating to students (gender, Indigenous background, language background, home location), their parents (education level, occupation, birthplace), attitudes toward school, aspirations and self-concept
Unmet demand? : characteristics and activities of university applicants not offered a place by Gary N Marks( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 15 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."
Student workers in high school and beyond : the effects of part-time employment on participation in education, training and work by Margaret Vickers( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Data on the y95 cohort (first interviewed in 1995 when in Year 9) of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth were analyzed to identify the effects of student employment on participation and attrition in secondary school and tertiary study and on young people's activities after secondary school. Working between 1 and 5 hours during Year 9 of secondary school had no impact on the likelihood of completion of Year 12. Participation in more than 5 hours of employment each week was associated with an increased likelihood of dropping out before the end of Year 12, especially for males. The more hours per week students worked, the more likely they were to drop out. Compared with their male counterparts, females who worked part-time during Year 9 were much more likely than to complete Year 12. Students who worked part-time during high school were 65% more likely to gain an apprenticeship or traineeship and 46% more likely to be in full-time employment rather than be unemployed after high school. Field of study has a major impact on dropping out. An inverse relationship between contact hours and dropping out was discovered. Participating in part-time work did not increase the odds of dropping out of tertiary study. (Twelve tables are included. The bibliography lists 31 references. Four data and analysis tables are appended.) (mn)

Young people outside the labour force and full-time education : activities and profiles by Kylie Hillman( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 14 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."
