The National VET E-learning Strategy for 2012-2015 will play a key role in enabling the Australian training sector to take advantage of the rollout of the National Broadband Network (NBN) to make major advances in the achievement of government training objectives.
Coordinated action to develop sector-wide capability in using the new technological environment will, at the same time, stimulate innovative approaches to increasing participation in training and work, and improving the skill levels of the Australian workforce.

|>>||Australia. VET career development services: the way forward|
This paper aims to provide a clear model of guidelines for career development services in the Australian vocational education and training (VET) sector. The term 'career development services' is used to refer to a wide range of programs and services whose main purpose is to help individuals to gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes to develop life skills and to manage their learning, work and careers. This paper focuses on VET and the role that career development services have in assisting people to make transitions, including from school to further training (including VET and higher education), and into the workplace. The aim of these guidelines is to inform the establishment and/or enhancement of a system which gives all VET students, as well as parents, schools and employers, access to expert, inclusive, relevant, fruitful and informed careers advice.

|>>||Australia. The Effect of Overskilling Dynamics on Wages|
We use a random effects dynamic probit model to estimate the effect of overskilling dynamics on wages. We find that overskilling mismatch is common and more likely among those who have been overskilled in the past. It is also highly persistent, in a manner that is inversely related to educational level. Yet, the wages of university graduates are reduced more by past overskilling, than for any other education level. A possible reason for this wage effect is that graduates tend to be in better-paid jobs and therefore there is more at stake for them if they get it wrong.

This report examines short and long term demand for skills in: project construction; mining operations; and gas operations. In addition the report examines the extent of existing skill shortages in occupations in demand in the resources sector, recent trends in resources related job vacancies and the likely replacement demand for skills. The report also examines potential skills supply to the resources sector from higher education, vocational education and training (VET) and migration.
The analysis shows that there is potential for increase in supply of some critical skills, for example in mining engineering, but skills supply in other areas, particularly in key trades such as fabrication steel tradespersons and welders is more concerning.

In this paper, we report on our initiative to redesign a pre-service primary science education program to explicitly value personal learning networks, discursive learning spaces and metacognitive thinking. A range of e-learning tools that could support these learning objectives were trialled, creating learning spaces for both large and small group learning experiences, including informal, personal and public forms of engagement. We present a profile of the pre-service teachers and their levels of knowledge about the technologies, the change to the lecturer's practice and experiences provided to students, along with stories which illustrate how the changes extended or developed the use of technology for personal learning.

L'intérêt de l'Australie réside en ceci d'avoir réussi à développer un système de formation professionnelle et technique universel. Que l'on emprunte la voie scolaire ou celle de l'apprentissage, que l'on ait 16 ans ou 45 ans, que l'on soit en début ou à mi-carrière, on suit le même programme (avec des aménagements de reconnaissance des compétences pour tenir compte de l'expérience acquise) et on obtient le même certificat ou diplôme reconnu nationalement. À cela ajoutons que la majorité des certifications acquises via la voie de l'apprentissage sont de niveau 3 (correspondant au DEP québécois), c'est plus qu'il n'en faut pour attirer notre attention sur l'expérience australienne.

This report investigates skill matches to job requirements for workers in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Canada. It might be expected that differences between the four countries in economic growth, technological innovation and structural change in the labour market may have led to differences in job skill requirements and use. This research finds, however, that the broad match of workers to jobs that use their skills is quite similar for the four countries, although some differences in the patterns of skill use over time were identified.

Danish society puts a high value on education which is traditionally seen as a crucial vehicle for development in all spheres of social and economic life. Large sums are spent on work-related adult learning, an important example being academically based masters programs. Yet, the actual effects of such educational investment in terms of improved workplace efficiency remain obscure both with respect to the organization and the individual.
The article presents, and illustrates with examples, a framework for designing educational programs which can help make academic teaching relevant to production-oriented life in organizations.

Policy implementation research in general and educational policy in particular is loosely connected to policy-making processes. There is a gap particularly in the field of vocational education. This often leads to conflicts and contradictions between policy-maker objectives and end-user implementation. To avoid such a disconnect, the relation between the world of end users and the world of decision-makers should be carefully constructed.

Employers seem to agree that the skill they most want in future workers is adaptability. Those who hire complain that they often find today's college graduates lacking in interpersonal skills, problem solving, effective written and oral communication skills, teamwork, and the ability to think critically and analytically.
So which college majors best arm students with those skills? That question has touched off heated discussions between those who advocate for the content of a practical major and others who think that the skills of a liberal-arts major are the best insurance in rapidly changing fields.

A paper makes the intriguing argument that it may be better to hire a mediocre job candidate than to hire someone with sterling credentials. Why? The mediocre hire may give the job his all because he feels indebted to the hiring manager for choosing him. The most qualified candidate, by contrast, may feel like he deserved the job, and decide to approach it with a more relaxed attitude.

|>>||Canada. Youth Unemployment in Canada: Challenging Conventional Thinking|
Fuelled in part by fears that burdens of the recent recession have disproportionately fallen on youth, the issue of youth unemployment has rekindled significant unease with different levels of government, communities and the general public. In addition to the most common consequences of unemployment such as financial hardship and emotional distress, joblessness may also result in the erosion of an individual's skills and knowledge and increase uncertainty of future labour market prospects. For jobless youth, this aspect of unemployment may particularly be 'scarring' as skills and knowledge gained through the educational system may not have appropriate opportunity to crystalize into professional ability. At the aggregated economic level, such an erosion of skills may disadvantage business in their ability to expand and compete; particularly in an environment of increasing global competition.

The thesis argues that the Copenhagen Process has legitimately extended vocational education and training policy formation to include the EU and its new institutional settings established through the Open Method of Coordination. Furthermore, vocational education and training is being reconfigured within a neoliberal Lifelong Learning discourse in which education and training in general is to contribute to the competitiveness of the EU in a global economy. Within this discourse, policy is de-politicized and naturalised as being neutral and evidence-based leading to the unreflective transfer of policies across countries.
