Exploring the value of email and telephone careers guidance (Prospects Luminate)

Researchers at The Open University compare the efficacy of e-guidance and telephone careers support for students’ career learning, development and progression, finding that telephone careers guidance performed markedly better for a higher proportion of students than e-guidance.

Increasing students’ career readiness through career guidance: measuring the impact with a validated measure (University of Derby)

This research details the development of a career readiness measure and tests the relationship between career guidance interventions and career readiness among secondary school students. Greater participation in career guidance activities was significantly associated with increased career readiness.

Transitioning Back to Work: How to Improve EI Working-While-on-Claim Provisions (IRPP)

This study investigates whether working part-time does indeed help EI claimants transition to permanent work. It concludes that working-while-on-claim provisions can help unemployed Canadians successfully transfer to permanent jobs, but the rules should be improved and new programs introduced for those unlikely to benefit from part-time, casual work.

Searching for an OaSIS in the World of Skills and Occupation Mapping (LMIC)

As Canada looks to develop its own occupational information system, it has the unique opportunity to study other international models for inspiration. In this LMI Insight Report, five such models are reviewed: O*NET (US), the UK Skills Taxonomy (UK), ESCO (Europe), JEDI (Australia) and Skills Framework (Singapore) to highlight their real-world data collection and methods for identifying the skills requirements of jobs.

Are Canada’s Charities Ready for Digital Transformation? (CanadaHelps)

The 2021 Digital Skills Survey Results seeks to understand and assess the degree to which Canadian charities are open, interested, and willing to adopt new digital tools, and to identify barriers in using them. Among the findings: More than 55% of charities expressed either a lack of funding or the skills, expertise and knowledge for greater use of digital tools.
