Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three reports that we found interesting this week:
People for Education’s 2019 annual report on schools raises concerns about the potential impact of Ontario’s plans to “modernize” education, while at the same time reducing funding for the teachers and other supports that play key roles in schools. Among the findings:
- 33% of elementary schools with grades 7 and 8 have guidance counsellors
- In secondary schools, guidance counsellors are responsible for 375 students each, on average; in 10% of schools, the ratio is as high as 687 to one
The number of job vacancies was up in six provinces and one territory: Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Nunavut. In the first quarter, four-fifths of all vacancies were for permanent positions.
This report finds that, globally, women make up 70% of the total health and social care workforce and an even larger share of the nursing and midwifery profession, but only comprise 25% of health system leadership roles.
