This joint ILO-UNESCO report provides a global, high-level overview of how digitalization is affecting TVET and skills systems. It draws on consultations with key stakeholders in a set of countries and international organizations to provide insights into the nature and scope of digitalisation and how it is likely to affect the management, delivery, assessment and certification of technical and vocational education and training. The study draws on developments in Brazil, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Malta, Mauritius, New Zealand, Slovenia, Turkey and the United States.
Engaging employers in apprenticeship opportunities
Date de publication: 10 juil. 2017

This joint OECD-ILO publication provides guidance on how local and regional governments can foster business-education partnerships in apprenticeship programmes and other types of work-based learning, drawing on case studies across nine countries. There has been increasing interest in apprenticeships which combine on the job training with classroom-based study, providing a smooth transition from school to work. There are benefits to both individuals and employers from participating in apprenticeships, including increased productivity and job quality. Successful implementation is contingent on having a high level of employer engagement at the local level, notably in the design, development and delivery of programmes.

Literacy and numeracy at work: Skills, education and job tasks
Date de publication: 12 avril 2016

In New Zealand, around 40 per cent of people in employment have literacy and numeracy skills below a level needed to use and understand the increasingly difficult texts and tasks that characterise a knowledge society and information economy, according to the Adult Literacy and Life Skills (ALL) survey. However, there is limited information about how well employees’ skills match the literacy and numeracy practices they undertake in their jobs. The ALL survey data can provide some insight to this issue.

This report addresses the following questions: What are the different types of literacy and numeracy practices at work? How do these literacy and numeracy job practices relate to measures of job type and skill? What is the relationship between the skills, qualifications and experience of employees and the literacy and numeracy practices in their jobs? What is the extent of match and mismatch between the literacy skills of employees and their literacy and numeracy practices at work? What access do people with low skills and frequent literacy and numeracy job practices have to further education and training?

Date de publication: 31 mars 2016
Source: Institutions académiques
This paper considers models of employer engagement within different international approaches to sectoral skills development, focusing on examples from the UK, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Netherlands and the USA. Four sectoral models of employer engagement are outlined, exploring what is expected from employers within these different models. Some of the challenges and implications of these different sectoral approaches to engaging employers and creating demand-led skills systems are discussed.

Journeys of growth – The career progression of Cook Islands women in Aotearoa, New Zealand: Utilising the Tivaevae research methodology (Oceania)
date_événement: 28 nov. 2022
Sources: Autres sources-Career Development Association of New Zealand

Existing Pacific Islands research in New Zealand has small numbers of Cook Islands descent participants and generally present the views of the majority Pacific ethnicity represented in the study. This overshadows insights from smaller ethnic nations – Cook Islands women are a minority group amongst minority communities.

This study addresses this phenomenon by placing the voices of Cook Islands women front and centre. Using the Cook Islands research methodology, Tivaevae, this study investigates the strategies Cook Islands women used to successfully progress their careers in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Tivaevae is a bedspread-sized cloth or quilt traditionally handmade by Cook Islands women, and generally depicts stories of natural fauna and flora found in the Cook Islands. As a research methodology, the Tivaevae ensures each stage of the research process maintains the values of Pacific cultures and presents Pacific views appropriately. The process of making the tivaevae can be replicated into four broad stages of the research design of a Cook Islands study (Futter-Puati & Maua Hodges, 2018):

  1. ‘Akapapa: which means planning the patterns, stiches, fabric, colours and timing for the tivaevae. Or in other words planned research activities.
  2. ‘Akauru: having speciality knowledge and skills to collaborate with others, or data collection
  3. Paokti: to cut patterns, analyse and interpret designs for the tivaevae, or to analyse data,
  1. O’ora: presenting the cloth or quilt for all to see or presenting findings and the final research report
Time: 12.00 - 1 p.m. NZDT

How to build a culturally responsive career practice: Exploring the lived experience of Pacific youth in shaping their career - Oceania
date_événement: 02 déc. 2022
Sources: Autres sources-Career Development Association of New Zealand

An investigation into the role of existing career practitioners supporting the career pathways of Pacific youth in South Auckland, unpacking the cultural, political, social, and historical landscape in playing a significantly role in youth's career decisions and aspirations.

The Australian Pacific family may differ in location and historical narrative from New Zealand, but the migrant story and the diasporic Pacific communities share similar aspirations and social norms that shape the career pathways of Australian Pacific youth.

The presentation is a journey into the evolution of Peter's aspiration to infuse Pacific indigeneity into the foundation of his career development practice BrownTale.

Peter will emphasise the Pacific community's value of collaboration, communalism, constructive interdependence and the underlying virtue of service and give an insight into the Pacific & Māori cultural competency frameworks such as Tapasā for education, Fonofale & Te whare tapa whā used by health professionals.

A career framework that draws from constructivism and narrative theories to help form a culturally responsive careers framework when working with young Pacific students
