School Dropout Prevention: the What Works Clearinghouse
By iccdppadm @ 3:27 AM :: 18111 Views :: 16 Comments :: :: Career Development, Parents and Career Guidance, Guidance in Schools and Training, Guidance for Young People at Risk, Guidance for Disadvantaged Groups, Co-ordination and Leadership, Americas, USA

School dropout prevention continues to exercise the mind of policy makers in many countries. The European Ministers of Education (2003), for example, established several reform targets for education systems in Europe for the year 2010 including increased participation in the upper end of second level schooling and the reduction of non-completion rates. In the USA the Department of Education established within its confines the Institute for Educational Sciences (IES), one of whose units is known as "What Works Clearing House" (WWC). The role of WWC is to be a central and trusted source of scientific evidence for what works in education. It reviews extant research about programs, policies or practices and assesses the "quality" of the research. Based on the research that meets particular standards, the WWC then reports on what the research indicates about the effectiveness of the program, policy or practice, which can be abbreviated as "the intervention".

The WWC produces three types of reports and a guide:

  • intervention reports which assess all studies of a specific intervention within a topic area, rating each of them on WWC evidence standards;
  • topic reports which compile the information from intervention reports within a topic area and enable WWC users to easily compare the ratings of effectiveness and sizes of effects for numerous interventions in one area;
  • quick reviews designed to provide education practitioners with timely and objective assessments of the quality of the research evidence for recently released research papers and reports, and
  • practice guides that contain practical recommendations for educators to address challenges in their classrooms and schools.

School dropout prevention is one of the topic areas of the WWC. Evidence for following three outcomes is rated for effectiveness:

  • Staying in school
  • Progressing in school
  • Completing school.

Educational and vocational guidance are to be found as part of many dropout prevention strategies but they are only one element of a multidimensional approach to proving solutions to school dropout.

The WWC section on school dropout prevention is essential viewing for all policy makers, researchers and practitioners concerned with this problem.

The Australian Blueprint for Career Development
By iccdppadm @ 7:06 AM :: 17453 Views :: 9 Comments :: :: Career Development, Guidance in Schools and Training, Guidance in Tertiary Education, Guidance for Young People at Risk, Guidance for Unemployed Adults, Guidance for Employed Adults, Guidance for Older Adults, Guidance for Disadvantaged Groups, Co-ordination and Leadership, Australia

Given the increasing policy importance being paid to the development of the skills to manage one's career, learning and work pathways in a lifelong learning context(Council of European Ministers of Education, 2008), this Australian publication is very timely to provide guidance on what exactly these skills look like. A joint initiative of the federal, state and territorial governments, and published by the Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, and Training and Youth Affairs, this recently released document provides a framework for the design, implementation and evaluation of career development rogrammes for young people and adults. It identifies the skills, attitudes, and knowledge that individuals need to make sound choices and to effectively manage careers.

It is divided into three sections:

  • What are career management competency skills?
  • Who uses the Blueprint?
  • What is the Blueprint used for?

There is a very useful Blueprint toolkit included - a series of resources to be downloaded to inform and enhance career development programmes and activities.
