Youth Studies Bulletin, v3 n2 May 1984
This bulletin contains materials--announcements, papers, and studies--that are concerned with youth policy issues and that focus on education and training. The first section, entitled Quidnunc, offers brief descriptions of projects of interest, reports recent appointments, and announces conferences. The second section, called Aspects, offers two papers, one on aboriginal youth issues and the other on the Work Resources Centre in Canberra. A paper on training programs for school leavers in West Germany is presented in the section entitled "Looking at Other Countries." The fourth section concerns participation and contains four articles. They deal with the following subjects: (1) aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander secondary education and the Participation and Equity Program (PEP), (2) a Western Australian perspective on PEP, (3) developments in PEP, and (4) post-compulsory schooling (a summary of a discussion paper issued by the Minister of Education in Victoria). The fifth section, on youth studies research, provides a summary of research on employer attitudes, practices regarding recruitment and selection, expectations and assessments of young people, and youth unemployment. A companion paper discusses sources of statistics on youth employment. The final and main section is a review paper, comprising a collection of eight papers on job creation. Specific topics include a demand side interpretation of labor markets, job creation for disadvantaged workers, and the role of local government. (YLB)
