Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week:

Skills, Signals and Labour Market Outcomes: An Analysis of the 2012 Longitudinal and International Study of Adults (HEQCO)

This report from by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario concludes that skills and credentials are both important predictors of an individual’s labour market outcomes. Literacy and numeracy skills are strong predictors of both income levels and employment status, whereas credentials appear to have a significant effect on earnings alone, the study found.

Promoting Careers in the Skilled Trades to Indigenous Youth in Canada (Canadian Apprenticeship Forum)

This report describes experiential learning opportunities in high school for students interested in learning about the skilled trades. Examples of Indigenous-focused initiatives and the impacts on student outcome are described.

Southern Ontario’s Basic Income Experience (McMaster University et al.) 

The self-reported outcomes of participants help shed light on basic income’s potential as a policy instrument to alleviate poverty and raise the standard of living of individuals in today’s precarious labour market.

The Impact of Technology on Learning and Teaching in Canada (ICTC)

This study evaluates the increased presence and role of technology in the classroom. Assessing benefits, challenges and future opportunities, this study explores emerging educational technologies, highlights how these digital developments can be leveraged to solve problems and ultimately how they enhance the student learning experience.
