Self-Help and Career Planning: Report for Skills Development Scotland 2009
Published on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 @ 9:39 PM by Admin Account
12911 Views :: 12 Comments :: :: Parents and Career Guidance, Guidance in Schools and Training, Guidance for Young People at Risk, Expanding Access to Guidance, Assessing Effectiveness, United Kingdom

This report prepared by the Centre for Educational Sociology at the University of  Edinburgh, describes a trial of possible measures of young people’s career self management skills and decision-making. The research considered pupils’ use of self-help services, in particular career development websites, and the impact of these websites on pupils’ career related learning and skills.

The main findings include:

  • the use of career development websites in Scotland has had a very limited impact on pupils' career related learning and skills; the only positive discernible impact on career related learning and skills was from an interview with a careers adviser
  • the use of the school's career library had a greater impact on pupils' career management skills than did the use of the main Scottish career development websites
  • for school-pupils, self-help provision is only one element that is used alongside other career service provision
  • truancy, having a negative attitude to school, and lower attainment were associated with a lower usage of self-help services including career websites. These factors, however, did not make a difference to the chances of pupils having direct contact with a careers advisor (both on a group and an individual basis)
  • pupils from a minority ethnic background were more likely to seek direct contact with a careers advisor than to use self-help services
  • family and friends are considered by pupils to be their most important source of career information and advice.

These findings are important in the light of the central role envisaged for career development websites (as well as other ICT) in government strategies for careers related learning and skills.

FUTURE AMBITIONS: DEVELOPING CAREER SERVICES IN WALES (UK) 2010
Published on Sunday, January 30, 2011 @ 3:36 PM by Admin Account
10483 Views :: 3 Comments :: :: Career Development, Expanding Access to Guidance, European Union (EU), United Kingdom, Co-ordination and Leadership

Wales, bounded by land and sea, with a good mix of urban centres and rural aspects, is a part of the United Kingdom, with a population of 3 million people. It has its government and own parliament, the National Assembly of Wales, its own language, Welsh, and many people living in Wales are bi-lingual (English-Welsh).

This 2010 report, published by the Careers Policy Branch of the Welsh Assembly Government, is an externally led review of career services in Wales, comprising a wide range of service providers: schools, further education colleges, higher education, and Careers Wales and its constituent careers companies. People living in Wales are able to access career services through a mix of national telephone helpline, web and face to face services.

The report identifies the need for services to be more clearly defined and the quality of leadership improved. It offers pointers as to how relationships between providers may be improved in the interests of service users by building a more flexible, efficient, coherent and effective system of careers provision. These pointers form a medium term strategy for service development over the next 3 to 5 years.

This report is to be commended especially to viewers interested in how a small size country caters for the career development needs of its population.

ENHANCING CHOICE: THE ROLE OF TECHNOLOGY IN THE CAREER SUPPORT MARKET (December 2010)
Published on Thursday, January 20, 2011 @ 7:20 PM by Admin Account
11675 Views :: 7 Comments :: :: Public Policy, Expanding Access to Guidance, Funding Career Guidance, Europe, United Kingdom

This report produced for the UK Commission for Employment and Skills addresses how technology is reshaping the career support market and the implications of this for policy makers and for the funding and delivery of services. The career support market is defined as the conceptual space within which individuals who desire career support transact with those who provide it. Technology contributes not only to increasing consumer choice and to improving the cost-effectiveness of services; it has also led to the development of new service paradigms, especially through social media applications.  It has changed how career support is being experienced by individuals and how the support services are managed, delivered and taken up. 

The report describes different styles of government intervention in the career support market involving the use of technology, including some international comparisons, and the business models that underpin the market. It provides some conclusions on the role of the government in the market in general, and its roles in ensuring more creative and strategic use of the opportunities provided by technology.

Linking the Climbing Frame and the Matrix Standard for Information, Advice and Guidance Services
Published on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 @ 12:58 AM by Admin Account
14160 Views :: 12 Comments :: :: Guidance for Employed Adults, Expanding Access to Guidance, Ensuring Quality, Assessing Effectiveness, European Union (EU), United Kingdom, Co-ordination and Leadership

The Climbing Frame is an electronic tool developed by Unionlearn, an organisation established by the Trades Union Congress in the UK to help Union Learning Representatives to promote lifelong learning in the workplace and to assist members to access learning opportunities.

The Matrix Standard is a unique quality standard to support the effective delivery of information, advice and guidance wherever it takes place. It has been found useful by trade unions in benchmarking and developîng learner support initiatives in the workplace

This guide (2009) brings these two frameworks together, showing how they complement each other and the benefits of this complementarity in delivering high quality support to learners.

Unions and Partnership: Union Learning Representatives and the Government's Skills Strategy
Published on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 @ 12:34 AM by Admin Account
20466 Views :: 39 Comments :: :: Guidance for Employed Adults, Expanding Access to Guidance, European Union (EU), United Kingdom, Co-ordination and Leadership

This Working Pâper by Bert Clough of Unionlearn, an organisation established by the Trades Union Congress in the UK, provides a historic review of the government skills strategy in the UK and of the partnership response of the trade union movement. It describes the rise of the Union Learning Representative (ULR), achieving national and statutory recognition. Their key role is to raise the demand for learning especially among workers with low or no qualifications. Their functions include:

  • training needs analysis
  • providing information and advice on training
  • promoting the value of training
  • arranging training
  • consulting with employers.

In one recent survey, 85% reported offering information, advice and guidance.

The paper also describes the experience of trade unions in other countries in similar activities.

The proximity of the ULRs to the workforce is another example of how access to guidance at the workplace can be organised.
