4 reports that caught our eye the week of Feb. 28, 2021

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

Positive, High-achieving Students? What Schools and Teachers Can Do (OECD)

This report aims to identify the teacher and school factors that matter most for student achievement and social-emotional development. The report uses a data-driven approach to identify the dimensions that are most strongly linked with student outcomes, and then combines this with a careful review of theory and previous research to analyze and interpret the findings.

The Digital-Led New Normal (ICTC)

Due to increased demand for digital services and the ability of many digital economy employees to work remotely, the COVID-19 crisis has actually led to an increase in the digital economy’s share of total employment. Because of this resilience and expected growth in influence, ICTC forecasts that employment in the digital economy will continue to grow to over two million by the end of 2022.

Diversity of charity and non-profit boards of directors: Overview of the Canadian non-profit sector (Statistics Canada)

The objectives of this survey were to collect timely information on the activities of these charities and non-profits and the individuals they serve, and to learn more about the diversity of those who serve on their boards of directors.

Better prepared: Essential skills and employment outcomes for young people (SkillsBuilder Partnership)

This UK-based research explores these questions:

  • Who has essential skills, and how does this vary by socio-economic background?
  • How do young people build essential skills, and what are their attitudes to them?
  • What is the impact of essential skills on earnings and qualifications level?
