5 reports that caught our eye the week of Jan. 24, 2021

CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are five reports that we found interesting this week:

Skills for jobs: lifelong learning for opportunity and growth (UK Government)

This white paper sets out reforms to post-16 technical education and training to support people to develop the skills needed to get good jobs and improve national productivity.

An Indigenous Knowledge Mobilization Packsack: Utilizing Indigenous Learning Outcomes to Promote and Assess Critical Thinking and Global Citizenship (HEQCO & Negahweewin Research Centre)

This report explores the challenges met and lessons learned from infusing Indigenous learning outcomes in a wide variety of postsecondary courses and programs, not just those focused specifically on Indigenous scholarship and studies.

COVID-19: Guidance for School Operation during the Pandemic (SickKids)

Given the significant negative impact that the initial prolonged school closure (to in-person learning) had on children and youth, this report recommends that school closures for in-person instruction should be a last resort for pandemic control.

Employment Insurance, November 2020 (Statistics Canada)

In November, 1.3 million Canadians received regular EI benefits, down 3.4% from a record 1.4 million in October. The vast majority of the unemployed (1.5 million) were looking for work, while 253,000 still had a connection to a job, either because they were on temporary layoff or had arrangements to begin a new job in the near future.

Top Traits and Qualities Employers Look for in 2021 (Zety)
