Du chômage à l’emploi : une mobilité professionnelle importante et complexe

Aquitaine Cap Métiers Sur les deux millions de demandeurs d’emploi qui sortent chaque année des listes de Pôle emploi, plus d’un tiers effectue un changement de domaine professionnel. Pôle emploi a étudié les changements de métiers dans le cadre d’une réorientation professionnelle lors du passage du chômage à l’emploi.
Cette étude a pour objectif de comprendre les enjeux de la mobilité professionnelle, d’identifier les profils et les métiers les plus concernés, les tranches d’âge, la formation et les motifs de la mobilité.
Ce sont les jeunes et les moins qualifiés qui sont le plus concernés par la mobilité professionnelle, même si le changement de métier n’est pas toujours un choix délibéré. L’absence de perspectives dans les métiers industriels motive également la reconversion.

http://leblogrh.recruteurs.apec.fr/wp-content/uploads/PMarzin.jpgPar Pierre Marzin. Le management à distance est une affaire de méthodes, d'outils et surtout de posture. Un défi de plus en plus fréquent pour les managers dans les entreprises.
Traiter du management à distance dans l'absolu, c'est risquer d'appliquer les mêmes conseils au management du représentant commercial au Brésil par son directeur commercial basé en France, qu'au management depuis Paris d'une équipe de consultants disséminés en Ile de France. Même si les principes peuvent s'appliquer à ces deux exemples, dans ce management particulier, l'importance de la distance est essentiel pour sa compréhension et sa mise en oeuvre. Suite...

$100,000 University Degrees Not Too Far Away

By Courtney Sloane (NTEU National Office). The NTEU says that if the Minister for Education, Christopher Pyne, caves into the demands of Group of Eight and some other university Vice-Chancellors and lifts the existing caps on fees charged to government supported university students, then days of $100,000 university degree will not be far off. According to a report in today’s Australian by Andrew Trounson one of the authors of Demand Driven Funding Review, Andrew Norton, is concerned that the removal of the price gap could result in excessive fee hikes.

Audit Commission’s proposal to increase student fees to promote quality and access won’t work says NTEU

By Jeannie Rea (NTEU National Office). Increasing the cost of getting a university degree through increasing HELP fees plus deregulating fees is not the way to ensure Australia has a robust and internationally reputable higher education system, claimed the National Tertiary Education Union today.
“The Abbott Government’s Commission of Audit recommendations on higher education arrangements slide in too neatly with Minister of Education Pyne’s recent speech in England and the recommendations from the Kemp-Norton Review of the Demand Driven Funding System,” said National President Jeannie Rea.
“You could be excused for thinking they have all just developed the same script. There is agreement that universities are critical to Australia’s economic and social development, yet also the view that government can abrogate responsibility to adequately fund our public universities to meet these challenges.”
The Commission of Audit recommends that students pay a significantly higher proportion of the costs of their education, increasing the student’s component of a Commonwealth supported place from 41% to 55%. Additionally, it is recommended that the repayment interest rate is increased, and the repayment kicks in at the minimum wage level.
“This recommendation is introduced with the statement: Commonwealth funding of higher education promotes quality and equity of access, while contributing to a more skilled and productive workforce.
“The NTEU agrees, but the Commission’s recommendations if implemented will backfire. There is a level at which concern about accumulating debt and earlier repayment will be a deterrent for both school leavers and mature age potential students taking on a degree program. Fear of accumulating debt is likely to lead to poorer performance and greater attrition leaving people without a degree, but still a debt  to repay on the minimum wage”, explained Rea.
“The Commission also calls for options to be developed “to increase competition in Australia's education system through a partial or full deregulation of fees for bachelor degrees”. This recommendation is based upon blind faith in market solutions to improve quality and innovation. However, the more likely outcome is some universities and courses competing to see just how high a fee they can get away with, while others whither as they undermine one another competing to offer the cheapest option.
“Public universities funded by government are accountable to their students, staff and the broader community. They are founded by Acts of Parliament and have missions to serve the public interest.  Universities play a critical role in the economy and society, and are far too important to be set adrift in the market,” said Rea.

Building system settings - Australia

http://www.cshe.unimelb.edu.au/research/res_seminars/pub_policy/2013/cshe-lhmartin.jpgBuilding system settings
Has Australia the imagination and will to create and maintain international pre-eminence in higher education? Key issues must be tackled across the next few years if an excellent higher education system is to be designed and built.
Since 2007 the University of Melbourne has hosted an influential series of high-profile public seminars on higher education policy. With higher education becoming ever more important to Australia’s prosperity it is essential to engage deeply in open discussions of how to plan and steer the tertiary system.

With contributions from Attila Brungs, Bruce Chapman, Peter Coaldrake, Hamish Coates, Peter Dawkins, Jane den Hollander, Dom English, Leo Goedegebuure, Robert Griew, Phil Honeywood, Richard James, Paul Jensen, Gregor Kennedy, John McCallum, Andrew Norton, Stephen Parker, Alan Robson, Steven Schwartz, Margaret Shiel, Robin Shreeve, Beth Webster and Paul Wellings.

Student tuition: Is there really a crisis?

“I think they are better off than they were 15 years ago," education consultant says. With news that some Canadian university students are turning to "sugar daddies and mommies" to help pay off their debts, and reports that some are working more than twice the amount of hours to afford tuition costs compared to 40 years ago, it certainly doesn’t sound like it’s a good time to be a young person going to school. But not everyone is convinced that today’s students are facing a tuition crisis. And some, like Alex Usher, president of Higher Education Strategy Associates, a consultancy that advises universities and governments, believes today's students actually have it better than some in the past.
