Why more black and Asian teenagers are choosing university

The Guardian homeBy . Government programmes have played a part in the increase in applications from minority groups, but so has institutional racism. As a teacher who taught and trained in West Yorkshire and now works in an all-boys, multicultural, inner-city London secondary, news that black and Asian students are more likely than their white counterparts to apply to university comes as no great shock. Often when I tell people what I currently do, they look at me with a mixture of wide-eyed amazement and pity. Read more...

University careers services should act more like recruitment agencies

The Guardian homeBy Zahir Irani. Career centres need to rethink their approach, says Zahir Irani, andprovide a more personalised service that gets students jobs.

Demandez-vous à vos nouveaux recrutés, salariés ou stagiaires, d'établir un rapport d'étonnement durant leur période d'intégration? Si vous le faites, tant mieux. Si vous ne le faites pas, vous passez à coté d'une source d'amélioration utile à votre organisation. Le nouvel intégré dispose d'une qualité que plus aucun de vos collaborateurs ne possède, un regard neuf sur votre entreprise. Ce regard peut nourrir un rapport d'étonnement intéressant. Pour les managers et les ressources humaines, ce rapport peut à la fois apporter des informations complémentaires sur le recruté et mettre utilement  en perspective la culture d'entreprise et ses pratiques. Il convient bien sur qu'il soit admis dans l'entreprise comme une étape utile et incontournable de la période d'intégration et qu'a ce titre, il bénéficie d'une immunité bienveillante. Formalisée ou d'écriture libre, il doit être le cadre d'une expression spontanée et sincère sur ce qui a séduit ou déplu, ce qui a étonné ou rassuré le salarié.
