Youth Employment and Training

Youth Employment and Training. Australia is now in its ninth year of economic growth (though Australia's export-led growth is now at risk) . How have young people fared in this economic climate? This report, prepared by Richard Curtain, uses recent official data to assess the labour market and education standing of 15 to 24 year olds. Despite the favourable economic climate there remains a considerable number of young adults who face difficulties finding work and staying in education or training. International comparisons show that Australia?s labour market is not as "youth friendly" as other countries that have better coordinated school-to-work arrangements. "How Young People are Faring, Key Indicators 2001", is published by the Dusseldorp Skills Forum.

Barriers and policy interventions ? The Training Incentive Allowance and the participation of sole parents and Invalids? Benefit recipients in education, training and employment. This review of New Zealand and international literature was undertaken as part of the Training Incentive Allowance (TIA) policy review. The TIA programme has many of the features identified in the literature as success factors for policy interventions designed to overcome barriers to participation in education, training and employment (particularly for sole parents and people with disabilities). The TIA can: * help people overcome identified financial barriers * allow for flexible participation in a wide range of training and education * facilitate access to flexible high-quality childcare. The TIA can also help in its capacity to be tailored to the needs and capacities of individuals and the labour market, and when it is delivered in conjunction with services including case management, career guidance and job search.
