Business and Education Interactions
SELLEN investigated who is responsible for developing employability skills and who we think is responsible. Turns out we all think it is someone else’s role, when in fact it is everyone’s responsibility

Maori and Pasifika Young People of the South East
Consequently, the South East Local Learning and Employment Network (South East LLEN) is interested in investigating the factors affecting the educational outcomes for Māori and Pasifika young people residing in the South East. However, before delving into a discussion, it is important to define who we mean by Māori and Pasifika people.

Sustainable Employment for Disadvantaged Job Seekers
For job seekers facing disadvantage, these barriers are often numerous and complex. This Inquiry’s terms of reference asked the Legislative Assembly’s Economy and Infrastructure Committee to examine the social and economic benefits of placing disadvantaged jobseekers into sustainable employment. The Committee chose to expand the Inquiry’s scope to also look at the employment barriers these jobseekers face and how they can be addressed.

The analysis in the report makes it clear that many of todays young children will not receive a ‘fair go’ in accessing education opportunities, for no other reasons than family background, demographic characteristics and geography.
A child from a low socio-economic background is up to three times more likely to be developmentally vulnerable by the time she or he starts primary school. An Indigenous child is 40% less likely to finish high school and 60% less likely to go to university compared with a non-Indigenous child. A child born in remote Australia is only a third as likely to go to university as a child born in a major city.
The Future of Work, Setting Kids up for Success
The messages are many – “hundreds of jobs to go”, “automation making workers redundant”, “most of 2030’s jobs aren’t even thought of yet”. Making sense of these competing messages is difficult, and nbn has commissioned this report as a way of cutting through the complexity, and clarifying what to do to give our kids the best foundation for success in the future labour market.
This report identifies three key points needed for our kids to be successful in the future job market:
- The in-demand jobs will be mixing high tech, personal contact (‘touch’) and care activities
- Kids will need a mix of both nerdy digital and soft personal skills for success in the 2030 job market
- Future jobs will be flexible, entrepreneurial and dynamic
Enabling the Future of Work
Learning and Development professionals play a pivotal role in the success of the future workforce. If you’re a Learning and Development professional, our latest paper enabling the future of work offers some interesting insights into the future of your role.
It specifically highlights the urgency with which Learning and Development professionals across the board will have to review their roles and urges them to stop being order takers and become impactful partners.
DeakinCo. have used this report to explore the trends and implications that have created this current state of change and what strategies businesses of all sizes can use to make sure they quickly evolve and keep pace.

NEW WORK MINDSET
There is an urgent need to shift mindsets in our approach to jobs, careers and work. New big data analysis of 2.7 million job advertisements provides us with insights into the patterns of skills young people now require to navigate complex and uncertain working lives. We must act now to ensure young Australians can thrive in the new world of work.
NEW WORK REALITY
For at least the past century, Australia’s promise to our young people has been that education is their ‘golden ticket’ to a full-time job. That promise is now at risk. Since being launched in 2015, the Foundation for Young Australians’ (FYA) New Work Order report series has provided insights into the evolving world of work and the skills young people need to develop in order to navigate these changes.
The reports highlight the transformation changes affecting the way we work and live. Technological advancement and global trends are changing the nature of work, the structure of economies, and the types of skills needed by labor forces across the world. The reports revealed that the average transition time from education to work is 4.7 years compared to 1 year in 1986. We wanted to look more deeply into this period and what young people could do during this time to accelerate their transition to full-time work.
INITIAL INVESTMENT REPORT - Southern Metro Region Five Year Plan for Jobs, Services & Infrastructure 2017–2021
In addition to this, the government wants to better understand and respond to the particular challenges and opportunities faced by communities in different parts of Melbourne. The government has identified six new metropolitan regions: Inner Metro, Inner South East Metro, Western Metro, Northern Metro, Eastern Metro and Southern Metro.
These regions provide the basis for a new, more collaborative engagement with communities and better coordinated planning and delivery of jobs, services and infrastructure.

UNIVERSITY OF CANBERRA - A Tale of 25 Cities in Australia
In many sectors of our economy, automation, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and machine learning will make more and more jobs redundant, or at least change them fundamentally (Frey & Osborne, 2013). Moreover, it is not just unskilled or semi-skilled workers who face these threats from new technologies and the changing nature of work.
Increasingly, many skilled and professional occupations are being affected by these same technologies and their associated economic and social transformations, leading some to question the very future of many professions (Susskind & Susskind, 2015). It is predicted that roughly half of the jobs that currently exist in developed economies could be automated or otherwise made redundant by 2030 (Frey & Osborne, 2015).
Household, Income, and Labour Dynamics in Australia
HILDA, is a nationally representative longitudinal study of Australian households.
It is funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Social Services and is managed by the Melbourne Institute.
The Melbourne Institute publishes the latest findings from the HILDA Survey each year, allowing Australians to see how different aspects of their lives have changed over time.
THE 14TH ANNUAL STATISTICAL REPORT OF THE HILDA SURVEY
This report presents key findings from Waves 1 to 17 of the HILDA Survey. The report explores ten topics:
- Households and family life
- Household economic wellbeing
- The labour market
- The division of paid and unpaid work among couples
- Self-employment and independent workers
- Education and labour market outcomes
- Individual changes in measures of cognitive ability
- Financial literacy and attitudes to finances
- Who holds a driver’s license?

School to Employment Transitions
Centre for Applied Disability Research School to Employment Transitions
It is important that young people are supported to get the most out of this Guide. The ‘Effective School to Employment Transitions Research to Action Guide’ comprises a suite of resources including a rapid review of relevant literature and three practice guidance resources, targeted at service users, service providers and disability employment practice leaders.
The Rapid Review provides a full listing of references. The whole Research to Action Guide is available at the CADR Clearing House.
Engaging Early School Leavers
Leaving school early can have significant negative effects on an individual’s employment and life prospects. Vocational education and training (VET) can provide young people with the skills to improve their employment opportunities. But many young, early school leavers are shunning this option altogether, or dropping out of VET before completing a qualification. This research looks at why young, early school leavers are not considering VET as a means of gaining skills, and why, if they do start a VET course, some disengage and drop out.
Connecting the Worlds of Learning and Work
Schools alone cannot foster all of the skills and capabilities that young people need to find success in work and life. One way to make sure all young people get the education they need is by forming school-industry partnerships.
Bringing the worlds of learning and work closer together has benefits for everyone.
School-industry partnerships can deliver many benefits across society.
- improve young people’s transitions from school to careers
- help employers grow skills for emerging jobs and address workforce gaps
- bring communities closer together and increase national productivity
