From Initial Education To Working Life: Making Transitions Work, Phil Mckenzie Dec 1999

From Initial Education To Working Life: Making Transitions Work, Phil Mckenzie

Dr Phillip McKenzie

The experiences of 14 countries in the OECD are examined in order to address the issue of transition from compulsory education to work change and how it changed in the 1990s. The report also examines the data in relation to the types of transition policies and how well they worked. The report also examines the complex and faceted national institutional arrangements that can result in successful transitions to working life. The report also examines the ways in which countries attempt to lay foundations for lifelong learning during the transition phase through changes to educational pathways and institutions.


The Resource Implications Of Vet In Schools, Gerald Burke, Phil Mckenzie, Chandra Shah Dec 1999

The Resource Implications Of Vet In Schools, Gerald Burke, Phil Mckenzie, Chandra Shah

Dr Phillip McKenzie

This article is concerned with an aspect of the development of vocational education and training (VET) programs in schools, the likely resource implications of extending VET in schools. How much do VET programs cost, and how are those costs shared among the key parties involved, namely school systems, individual schools, VET providers, employers, and students? The level and distribution of costs are important, in terms of budgets for each party, but also for what they imply about the nature of VET programs in schools and students' access to them.

Responding to this requirement calls for the development of effective strategies for lifelong learning.
