4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Messages about our future skill needs - and our ability to produce those skills - often conflict. It is not always clear what skills are needed, nor whether our education and training system will deliver them. By juxtaposing business, economic and managerial developments underlying the changes in skill needs and information on the UK's education and training performance, this book will help policy-makers, academics and practitioners better understand the UK's future skill needs. As well as containing a wealth of data on future skill demand, the book describes the UK's comparative international performance in the supply of skills. The evidence leads many of the contributors to suggest that employers' lack of demand for skills is a major factor in the UK's skill problem. The contributors to this invaluable analysis include senior researchers at the Policy Studies Institute, the Institute for Employment Research and the Institute for Employment Studies, as well as academics from the University of Manchester, London School of Economics, Warwick University and Oxford University.

Barriers to employment for offenders and ex-offenders( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research explores the evidence on the level, pattern and causes of unemployment among people with a criminal record (PwCR) in the UK, with a focus on the recruitment stage of the hiring process and the impact of knowledge of a criminal record on the decision to employ. The Police Act of 1977 introduced 'Basic Disclosure" which authorised employers, with the consent of the individual, to access information on job applicants' and employees' criminal records. A new piece of legislation, the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, soon to come into force, will alter that ability, and for some PwCR, the Act will allow them to put their criminal record entirely behind them. The causes of unemployment among PwCrs is assumed to be high. However research shows that part of this group - those in prison, and those under probation supervision - exhibit characteristics associated with employment difficulties, such as low qualifications and drug and alcohol abuse. Irrespective of criminal record, this group would be expected to suffer above average levels of unemployment. What impact, then, does the criminal record alone have?
