Employment-Related Key Competencies for Post-Compulsory Education and Training.
Technical and Further Education-TEQ, Queensland (Australia). Library Network Branch.
This response to a review committee reporting on young people's participation in post-compulsory education and training redefines the collection, analysis, and organization of ideas and information as a constituent part of the broader concept of information literacy. It is further suggested that information literacy should be identified as a separate key competency which is essential to the development of broad-based skills required for workplace efficiency and the ability to encompass change. The competencies required within the field of information literacy are described as integral to all subject areas, and recommends their infusion into the curriculum development process. It is further suggested that the competencies are not exclusive to one educational sector and they should be developed in a continuum which encompasses the transition from school to tertiary education and from education to work. An information skills curriculum to support the development of information literacy skills across all educational sectors is recommended. Three diagrams are used to illustrate the concepts presented: moving from data to knowledge; the learner using information resources; and information skills competency--the journey from school to work.
