CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three reports that we found interesting this week.
This report explores alternative approaches to employment-based training – cadetships and internships, higher apprenticeships and on-the-job structured training such as mentoring – and their implications for VET content and delivery.
In its first report, the UK-based Lifelong Education Commission seeks to recommend how barriers to adult learning can be removed; what future investment is needed to support this; and what change is needed to ensure the maximum flexibility that will benefit learners.
According to this report – based on a survey of more than 1,200 entrepreneurs and 3,000 members of the working-age population – 55% of Canadian entrepreneurs are struggling to hire the workers they need, which leaves them with no choice but to work more hours, as well as delay or refuse orders.
