How to study abroad for low fee university degree in Europe, article from The Telegraph:

University students can save ‘£13,400′ by spending a year abroad.  Comprehensive research suggests that British students who go on a foreign exchange pay significantly less than those who remain at home.

Undergraduates can shave their student debt by tens of thousands of pounds if they spend a year in a foreign university, extensive research suggests.  Analysis of tuition fees, accommodation, the cost of travel, living costs and language learning, by HSBC, shows that the cost of studying abroad is up to £13,404 cheaper than staying in the UK.

Poland’s Warsaw University is the cheapest location for British students, typically costing £4,119 for a year’s accommodation including fees, living expenses like food and clothing, three return flights to Britain and even an excursion to nearby Belarus (£76).

By contrast, the average student in Britain pays £17,523 for an academic year including tuition fees, rent, travel costs and basic living expenses.

Even the most expensive location to study abroad, Sydney University, is cheaper than remaining at home. British students pay £15,000 in total for their fees and living costs at the Australian university. The biggest expense is the cost of living (£5,569 excluding accommodation) followed by accommodation (£4,839) and three return flights to the UK (£3,045).

Fees loophole

A year overseas is significantly cheaper, in part, due to a fees loophole that means British students pay just 15pc of normal tuition fees (currently capped at £9,000) if they spend the whole academic year abroad.

All the below costs include this discounted fee of £1,350, which students pay to their university in Britain.  In addition, there are more maintenance grants and funding opportunities for students who spend a year overseas.  On top of the normal maintenance loan and grants, exchange students receive an “away rate” which varies according the country and student’s own circumstances.

Students can also apply for a Travel Grant through the student loans company to help with the cost of flights and health insurance.  Students planning a year abroad in an EU country are entitled to an Erasmus Grant from the British Council, usually around €225 (£169) per month.

This means that even British students who live with their parents can slash the cost of £9,000 fees by studying in Poland, Portugal, Turkey, Germany or Spain, for example.’

Many international or local students, and business professionals, require academic English and business communication skills support after commencing university studies to meet degree requirements for the objective of graduation, and post graduate employment interview and work place skills.

 

English for academic purposes (EAP) entails training students, usually in a higher education setting, to use language appropriately for study. It is one of the most common forms of English for specific purposes (ESP).  AIEC in Budapest can offer such support to students, groups and inside faculty for remedial communication support whether that be academic writing, critical analysis, presentation and other skills with flexible delivery.

An EAP program focuses instruction on skills required to perform in an English-speaking academic context across core subject areas generally encountered in a university setting.  Programs may also include a more narrow focus on the more specific linguistic demands of a particular area of study, for example business subjects.

Outside Anglophone countries, English-medium universities may have a preparatory school where students can spend a year or two working on their English and academic skills before starting degree courses. EAP courses running alongside other degree courses may be based on the American English and Composition model, or may employ Content-based instruction, either using material from the students’ degree subjects or as an independent, elective-like course. These in-sessional courses may be desirable more to help students develop study skills and required academic practices than for language development

In common with most language teaching, EAP instruction teaches vocabulary, grammar and the four skills (reading, writing, speaking – including pronunciation – and listening), but usually tries to tie these to the specific study needs of students; for example, a writing lesson would focus on writing essays rather than, say, business letters. Similarly, the vocabulary chosen for study tends to be based on academic texts. In addition, EAP practitioners often find that, either directly or indirectly, they are teaching study skills and often having to tackle differences in educational culture, such as differing attitudes to plagiarism.

This trend has become more prominent as the numbers of foreign students attending universities, and other institutions across the Anglosphere, has increased over the last decade.

With ongoing needs analysis any custom program can be delivered in our office, your home or in faculty on campus.

Study in Europe Budapest Hungary for low fee degrees taught through English.  Universities Australia modelling warns of fee increase under proposed higher education reforms.  University students will be forced to pay an average of double the existing fee to study at universities under the Abbott Government’s proposed reforms to higher education, according to new modelling provided by Universities Australia (UA)…..”We might start to see Australian students voting with their feet and in fact starting to consider international higher education providers,” she told Lateline.

 

From The Washington Post.  7 countries where Americans can study at universities, in English, for free (or almost free).  Since 1985, U.S. college costs have surged by about 500 percent, and tuition fees keep rising. In Germany, they’ve done the opposite.

The country’s universities have been tuition-free since the beginning of October, when Lower Saxony became the last state to scrap the fees. Tuition rates were always low in Germany, but now the German government fully funds the education of its citizens — and even of foreigners.

Explaining the change, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, a senator in the northern city of Hamburg, said tuition fees “discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up study.  It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”

What might interest potential university students in the United States is that Germany offers some programs in English — and it’s not the only country. Let’s take a look at the surprising — and very cheap — alternatives to pricey American college degrees.

 

From The Guardian Education Study Abroad.  Study abroad for a cheaper university option.  Overseas universities are undercutting their UK counterparts with courses taught in English

Daniel Hughes had always wanted to take a master’s degree but the cost of the qualification in the UK put him off. The current average price of a UK Masters degree is £6,000 a year, with some universities charging more than double that figure.

“I was thinking of going to study abroad after graduating from Bangor University and working in the NHS,” he says. “I could speak a bit of Swedish and the master’s courses in Sweden are free, so it made sense to look there.”

Now 29, Hughes is in his second and final year of an MA in media and communications studies at Stockholm University and is writing a thesis on why Scandinavian noir TV series are so popular with British audiences.

He is one of a growing number of UK students opting to study abroad in Europe at universities that offer master’s degrees in English for a much lower fee – or no fee at all.

According to a report from the Institute of International Education, the number of European master’s courses taught in English has mushroomed to over 6,600, up 42% in the past two years, with the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden leading the way….

…Studying for a master’s in mainland Europe ticks three important boxes: it is cheaper than in the UK; the education is high quality; and it gives you an international experience that could open doors to the career of your dreams.

Tanulmány munka utazás él Ausztráliában.  Mit kell tenni, hogy kint dolgzohasson valaki?  És ha már ott van, mennyit kereshet?  Az ausztráliai munkavállalás feltételei magyar állampolgárok esetében, a különböző vízumtípusoknál eltérőek.

 

 

Vízumtípusokkal vállalható munka:

  • Turista vízum esetében – nem engedélyezett a munkavállalás, bár könnyen megszerezhető a vízum
  • Diákvízum esetében – 20 óra / hét munkavállalás lehetséges, illetve iskolaszünet alatt teljes idős munkavállalás engedélyezett (részleteket lásd alább)
  • Szponzorált munkavállalási vízum esetében – teljes idejű munkavállalás lehetséges, de a szponzoráló munkaadóhoz kötődik

Diákvízum.  Legálisan heti 20 óra munka vállalható a kurzus megkezdésétől (figyelem, nem átlagolható hónapos viszonyban, azaz nem megengedett ’A’ héten 10 óra, utána ’B’ héten 30 óra!) hivatalos iskolaszünetek alatt a munkavállalás korlátlan szükséges hozzá az úgynevezett Tax File Number kiváltása, mely egyfajta adószám könnyedén és korlátlanul hosszabbítható partnernek is megengedett a munkavállalás, ugyanúgy heti maximalizált 20 órában dolgozhat, iskolába legfeljebb 3 hónapot járhat

Vállalható munkák.  Az, hogy milyen munkát tud valaki vállalni, nagyban függ a nyelvtudásától!

Alap szintű nyelvtudással általában a következő munkák találhatók:

Mosogatás, Konyhai segítő, Takarítás, Autómosás, Építőipari munkás, Költöztetés, Árufeltöltés.

Szezonális munka. Ez nagyon divatos a külföldiek körében. Gyümölcsszedés. A növények nem egyszerre érnek be, így ez egész éves munka.Pl.:  Északon mangó, Brisbane mellett banán, délen szőlő,. Napi 10 órás munka, kb.  heti 1000-1400au$, a szállást és az ellátást a munkaadó állja. Ideális turistáknak, akik önellátóan akarják beutazni a kontinenst.

Közép szintű nyelvtudással a következő munkák találhatók:

Pincér, Pultos, Bolti eladó, Recepciós, Pénztáros, Babysitter.

Felsőfokú nyelvtudással számtalan lehetőség közül lehet válogatni, és leginkább a szakmádban éri meg elhelyezkedni.

Tanácsaink, tapasztalatok, egy kis bátorítás…

Aki tényleg akar dolgozni, és nem sajnálja az energiát, és időt, hogy felkutassa az állásokat, az talál munkát! (hirdetések, internet, munkaközvetítő irodák)

Nem lebecsülendőek a kiutazás legelején talált első munkalehetőségek (mosogatás, takarítás), hisz ezeknek a munkáknak igen nagy szerepe van. Egyszóval, ha már van állás, akkor el tudja magát tartani az ember, és nem kell az otthonról hozott tartalékait felélnie. Közben úgy is nyílik mindenkinek lehetőség, hogy megfelelőbb munkát keressen.

Mindenki számára ajánlott, hogy az elején vállaljon el olyan típusú munkát is, ami esetleg nem a szíve csücske, hiszen ezzel is előnyt szerez addig, amíg megtalálja a neki megfelelő állást.

Bevált módszer, ha az ember megérkezése után a nyakába veszi a várost, és egy összeszedett önéletrajzzal bekopogtat a különböző vendéglátó egységekbe.

Használjuk az internetet! Számos weboldal lesz segítségedre az álláskeresésben. Ime néhány:

From SBS Australia:

The truth about trades: Apprenticeships versus university degrees.  Far more young Australians believe a university degree provides more career options but apprenticeships are becoming increasingly popular – and experts say that’s a good thing.

It’s National Skills Week and across the country the question of what to do next is on the mind of thousands of Australian students.

Research showed far more young Australians believed a university degree provided more career options

But rising tuition fees and high levels of youth unemployment meant apprenticeships were becoming increasingly popular…

 

 

….. Research by not-for-profit organisation WorldSkills Australia showed many Australians were unaware of the educational and training options available to them.

Experts said there was a misguided view that these careers were less valuable or less skilled.

There was the equivalent of 170,000 more full-time students enrolled in university last year than in 2009, when the previous Labor government began lifting restrictions on places.

The Coalition has committed to continuing the policy.

But some business and education leaders have begun to question the dominance of the university degree….

…. Chief Executive Officer of Computershare, Stuart Irving, chose to get on-the-job training rather than go to university.

Assistant Education Minister Sussan Ley said the federal government wanted students to consider a skilled trade.

“Trades and training equips you for jobs all over the world,” she said.

“If you look at food, hospitality, theatre, events, photography and film, they are transportable skills, and for young people today it is not about an Australian job market, it is about a global job market.”

New figures released by the Department of Employment earlier this month showed job shortages were more likely to be for trades, than professions.

But experts hoped the tides may change toward learning a trade.’

 

There are several issues revolving round social mobility, perceived status, costs and outcomes.  What advice are young people receiving from parents and school?  Are too many looking for ‘white collar’ or administrative management employment for social status, even though much is being automated in the digital economy?  For both domestic and international students using a TAFE or VET pathway to university is more economic, and one can ‘get their hands dirty’, while many university graduates are unable to find employment easily in their chosen field….

5 reasons why Melbourne is the most liveable city in the world.

MELBOURNE has once again been crowned the most liveable city in the world by The Economist for the fourth year in a row. Marina Solomon gives us five reasons why we deserve the title and more.

Melbourne at Night – Copyright Tourism Australia

 

Welcome to Melbourne, the friendliest and most liveable city in the world. For the fourth year in a row Melbourne has won the official title of Most Liveable City, as announced by The Economist. From coffee to street art, here are the top five reasons Melbourne is the place to be:

Culture.  Melbourne is Australia’s cultural capital, and for good reason. From multicultural cuisines to buskers filling the streets with music, chalk art and more, it’s not difficult to see that Melburnians are passionate about the arts, music and literature.

Fashion. Melbourne has impeccable style. Wherever you go, you’re guaranteed to find somebody dressed head to toe in an outfit you’ll envy.

Shopping. The love for fashion and the love for shopping often go hand in hand – that’s where Melbourne won’t disappoint.

Food and Drinks.  Have you ever roamed the laneways of Melbourne and wondered what that incredible smell is? That’s most likely a café serving specialty coffee and all day breakfast.

People.  Condé Nast Traveler just named Melbourne one of the friendliest cities in the world. Not only are we known as the friendliest city, but we are also famous for our wonderful sense of humour. So give yourself a pat on the back ladies and gentlemen, we’re officially funny and friendly’

Article from THES The Times Higher Education Supplement about issues of net overseas migration, immigration, population and visas for international education.

 

Consensus on net migration change, says MP.  Labour’s Paul Blomfield believes change could happen even if Tories lead government after general election.

Students could be removed from the net migration target shortly after the general election even if a Tory-led government is elected, a leading parliamentarian has suggested.

Paul Blomfield, Labour MP for Sheffield Central and chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Migration, believes that there is now a consensus among MPs that students should be excluded from official migration figures.

The Home Office has repeatedly resisted calls to change the policy, which many believe has led to increased red tape, tighter restrictions on student visas, and the end of post-study visas in an effort to limit overseas recruitment.

Ministers have been reluctant to review the policy – which Universities UK opposes – saying they would have been accused of “fiddling the figures” on the Conservative Party manifesto pledge to reduce annual net migration to below 100,000 by 2015.

However, Mr Blomfield thinks that the mood towards the policy has softened among Tory MPs, while Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the UK Independence Party also support a change. “We’ve won the argument over this Parliament, but not yet changed the policy,” he said.

An “unprecedented” five select committee reports calling for the removal of students from the net migration target “reflects the huge support across all parties” for a change, he added, saying: “A Labour-led government will work quickly to do that, but I hope whoever is in power will see a new Parliament as an opportunity for a fresh start.”

Among the senior Tory MPs who are said to back a change is Jo Johnson, head of the Downing Street Policy Unit and brother of the London mayor, Boris Johnson.

Nick Hillman, director of the Higher Education Policy Institute, said he “suspects there is a lively debate behind closed doors” within the Tory party on the issue.

“Now is a great opportunity for the Conservatives to come up with a more rational way of judging success on migration,” he said, adding that Ukip’s support for a review means that “no one can outflank them from the right” on the issue.

  1. It’s one of the most historic cities on the planet.
  2. And the greatest sights to see are free.
  3. It’s a food capital, and for good reason.
  4. Hot springs make the city into a spa playground.
  5. Budapest is one of the cheapest spots in Europe right now.
  6. The Great Synagogue is mind-blowingly beautiful.
  7. There’s essentially a mall of food.
  8. Budapest is totally road trip-able.
  9. And you’ll stay in the REAL Grand Budapest Hotel.
  10. But if you want to be an expert in terror, you can do that too.
  11. And here, wine is an art form.
  12. A magical island oasis is just a bridge walk away.

Australian International Education Strategy via the Department of education is open for feedback and consultation.

Related is previous post about the need for diversity in the international student population ‘Diversity in international education‘.  Recent news articles about the need for Australian international education and providers to diversify away from an over dependence upon developed markets in Asia.

 

Draft National Strategy for International Education.  The Government has released for consultation the Draft National Strategy for International Education.

The release of this draft strategy initiates a consultation process to ensure that the final strategy represents a shared national vision and responsibility.

Feedback on the draft strategy is warmly invited, including suggestions of specific institutional, state and territory and community-based initiatives that further the proposed goals.

Business leaders and employer groups are encouraged to identify opportunities to better link students to meaningful work experience and career opportunities.

The strategy will be finalised and implemented in close consultation with the international education and wider communities, including education providers, businesses, students, governments and community groups. It is intended that the final strategy will be released in the second half of 2015.

 

Consultation on the Draft National Strategy for International Education

The consultation process will include written feedback open until 5.00pm AEST, Friday 29 May 2015.

In addition, the Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, will chair two roundtables on international education in 2015.

The outcomes of consultations undertaken by a range of Government departments and agencies will contribute to finalising the strategy. For example:

Austrade is currently consulting on a long term market development plan, Australian International Education (AIE) 2025.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is developing a Global Alumni Strategy.

The Department of Industry and Science is leading a response to the Chief Scientist’s report Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics: Australia’s Future, including on international engagement in science.

 

Written feedback

Feedback on the Draft National Strategy for International Education should be completed in the response template found on the feedback page. Download and save a copy of the template to your computer. After completing, please upload your response.

Recent news articles about the need for Australian international education and providers to diversify away from an over dependence upon developed markets in Asia:

 

From The Fairfax Australia: ‘Education sector urged to lookto Latin America to turn around slump in international students.  Australia should look beyond the Asia-Pacific and lure more international students from Latin America and the Middle East to study at local campuses, according to a major federal government review of the $16 billion international education sector.

Half of Australia’s international enrolments come from just five countries – China, India, Vietnam, South Korea and Thailand. The government wants Australian higher education providers to expand into other regions where demand is booming while also building on their strengths in Asia.

The review of Australia’s biggest service export industry will also put pressure on the NSW and Victorian governments to reduce public transport prices for international students, who have complained of being treated like “cash cows” because they pay more for bus and train fares than local students.

International student enrolments grew over the past year but have dropped by 6.5 per cent since 2009. Overseas vocational education and training enrolments plummeted by 28 per cent over that period.’

 

From The Guardian: ‘Australia must look to world’s emerging markets for foreign students, report says.  Draft strategy encourages universities to focus on recruiting more students from Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, and improving students’ experiences.  Tertiary education institutions should look to emerging markets in Africa, Latin America and the Middle East in order to keep Australia in the top five destination countries for foreign students, a new government report said.

The federal education minister, Christopher Pyne, on Wednesday released the draft national strategy for international education. The paper encourages institutions to look beyond the Asia Pacific region for prospective students, and instead focus on the developing economies of the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.

Currently, more than 50% of Australia’s foreign students come from five countries: China, India, Vietnam, South Korea and Thailand. Less than 1o% of Australia’s 500,000 foreign students are from Latin America.

 

The education sector, universities in particular, have been corporatised for decades to make up for income shortfalls required by govt. budgets favouring ageing populations.  There are commercial entities and activity on campus from stock exchange listed companies offering university preparation provision, through to employees offering student home stay services to international students (I doubt few if any have ever been to public tender).

Australia needs to diversify international student body away from Asia, but how?  Does the international education sector have the necessary skills and outlook to develop new markets versus short term promotion and selling?

Most international managers view marketing as expensive international travel plans and ‘one off’ international events, self promotion, distribution of English language marketing materials’ and ‘agent management’.

While almost the entire international student body is online (searching in native language), skills such as statistical analysis, web/digital/social media concepts, web analytics, course search optimisation, (on campus) student feedback and evaluation are not deemed to be important, while key performance indicators, i.e. sales, are outsourced to international education agents?

What is the role of international managers and have they like much of the administrative management class become redundant as they are precluded from having, developing or using related digital/web skills for student market information and analysis?  An issue of digital technology leadership?

From The Australian Higher Ed on lecturer, teacher and trainer continuing professional development.  Teaching skills are best learned through collegial training.  ESTEEMED deans tell us how to do it. Crown ministers plot new laws to keep us doing it. And there’s even the occasional vice-chancellor who’ll dob me in if I stop doing it. 

Everyone’s had their say on how to teach better.

Here’s a view from a teacher who’s been trained by one lot, ­untrained by another, retrained and retrenched by one amalgamation, and then promoted and organisationally developed inside out in the next.

TAFEs, universities, private colleges; each system’s teacher training values really are different, but buried so deep in their respective DNA that most followers regard them as unquestionable one-size-fits-all truths.

When I started teaching in TAFE I was automatically enrolled in a nearby university’s graduate diploma of education. The course was part-time, using my actual TAFE classes for observed practice.

My TAFE supervisors sat in on some classes. They checked lesson plans and nudged me when I got off track.

After two years I started to get the hang of it, and the uni gave me a licence.

Then one day I came to work when amalgamation (rather than today’s deregulation) was rattling nests. The staffroom was half-empty. The survivors had turned into academics overnight. Except we had teaching qualifications that weren’t required of most of our new university colleagues. With PhDs or even a masters, you could wing it. And they did.

My old teaching skills worked well in the smaller class sizes I was used to. Lots of group exercises, creative stuff, dialogues and peer-to-peer teaching.

But as my classes started to swell, I started to retreat. To the lectern, where my handwritten lesson plans had morphed into two big PowerPoint screens so 300 or more could see.

I remembered a few students’ names, but hardly needed to use them because I was doing most of the talking now…….

….And did another course in teaching English as a second ­language.

 

The classes were small again. The name at the bottom of the testamur was from Oxbridge. The delivery via a private college.

I learned more in a month about teaching than I had in years. And I’d never worked so hard — even during my hard-earned PhD.

The skills for teaching English as a second language to a global benchmark may seem specific to that discipline.

I now know they’re not. I had more observed lessons and feedback in one month than I have ever had in public institutions.

Teaching isn’t just about accreditation. Just as you’d hope your own education isn’t just about learning for a test.

Good teaching can be taught, and is being taught, in places selling performance over prestige. The more hours I spent teaching while being observed by experienced teachers, the better I got.

It could be the first step to increasing the number of experienced teachers able to observe and train new teachers in real-world classrooms. Whether public or private, it’s collegial training that delivers the goods.

From International Students’ Club.  ‘Soup kitchens feeding international students in Australia. Seriously. There are lots of stories going around about rich international students who live it up when they are studying – flashy cars, luxury property, blah, blah, blah.

Then there is how the other half live.  Many international students have very little money when they are studying, and struggle to make ends meet each day.

Some international students in Australia are finding things so hard that they have had to seek help.

The Salvation Army in Melbourne has reported an increase in international students showing up at their free soup-kitchens to take up the offer of a free meal for those in need.  Major Brendan Nottle of the Salvation Army says that he recognises about 50 familiar faces showing up for dinner at their drop-in centre most weeknights. Another 20 or so show for breakfast.

“They have real difficulty making ends meet, many are exploited in the workforce and are getting paid $7 an hour, gambling is also an issue for some international students.” he said.

Most of the students come from South American and Asian countries and are living in poor accommodation while studying at private colleges.

A Colombian student who studies English at a private college and works as a casual cleaner said that he ate at the drop-in centre simply to pay the rent. “The [education] agencies said everything here is going to be ok. But here it is different,” he said.

The Army opened an international student centre, The Couch, six years ago and has received a steady stream of students since then. The centre offer meals and connects international students to mental health, legal services and housing and employment services.

Thomson Ch’ng from the Council on International Students Australia said that Australia was the most expensive place to study in the world and sometimes the students weren’t getting the full picture of employment and economical numbers before embarking on their study journey.

“It’s important for students to consult widely before coming to Australia to study. The information being presented to international students needs to be accurate so they are prepared with the cost of studying here,” he said’.

From Smart Company Finance on employment and skills shortages in Australia.  ‘The 20 hardest jobs to fill in Australia. Australian businesses are struggling to fill vacant positions, especially IT roles, according to research published today by one of the world’s largest job sites.

Despite rising national unemployment, companies are finding it tough to bring on board their ideal candidate – with an average one in four job vacancies remaining unfilled after a month.

Data released by recruitment platform Indeed and the Centre for Economics and Business Research reveals over 10% of job vacancies in Australia are unfilled after three months.

While the hospitality sector was found to have the greatest difficulty in recruiting new employees – with more than a fifth of advertised positions still open after three months – more than a third of the 20 hardest jobs to fill in Australia are IT roles. These include software engineers, analysts and IT professionals.

While Sydney has the highest proportion of job vacancies, with an estimated 14.4% of job vacancies taking three or more months to fill, Adelaide had the lowest proportion of vacancies and only 12.3% of advertised positions are still available after three months.

A lack of skills in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) has long caused a headache for Australian businesses, with the Australian Industry Group finding last month around half of companies struggle to recruit people with the right STEM skills.

Margaret Harrison, director of Our HR Company, says employers are increasingly challenged by employees who are not prepared to take an opportunity that is presented to them or “be prepared to learn on the job”.

“They are really adverse to updating their skills and I think that’s one thing the employers are finding,” Harrison says.

“They’re not finding people willing to update their skills on a regular basis. There are lots of attitudinal problems out there too. Not even in the IT industry, but other industries where people are not taking jobs they exactly want, rather than looking it as an opportunity to learn something or do something new.”

However, Harrison says employers also need to be more flexible in their approach to hiring if they are struggling to find the right candidates.

For example, if someone has the majority of necessary skills and the right attitude then it is probably worth hiring them and training them up rather than drain further resources for a few months looking for another candidate.

“Employers have to be prepared to teach people on the job so they can develop,” Harrison says.

“My approach is if you get the right person with the right attitude, help them because they’re the ones you want to keep.”

“The other thing I’d really encourage employers to do in that situation is to do your own recruiting – don’t leave it to the recruiters.”

The 20 most difficult jobs to fill in Australia are:

  1. Actuaries
  2. First-line supervisors/managers of non-retail sales workers
  3. Sales representatives
  4. Software quality assurance engineers and testers
  5. Sales engineers
  6. Sales and related workers
  7. Management analysts
  8. Computer software engineers
  9. Network and computer systems administrators
  10. Network systems and data communications analysts

From Telstra Australia on the global reach of the Asian Cup Football tournament 2015:

 

Connecting the globe to a moment in Australian football history.  An estimated 700 million viewers worldwide tuned in on Saturday night to witness a historical win for the Socceroos at ANZ Stadium. Do you know how millions of people from across the globe were able to see Korea level the score in the 91st minute?

 

 

It’s been a very exciting time at Telstra to be involved in this sporting high – thanks to our Digital Video Network (DVN)2 , multiple live itinerant transmission feeds, carried from each of the five Aussie venues – that connected viewers from around the world during the 20 days of the tournament.

The planning and logistics involved took many months, working with Gear House Australia to help air live coverage from all five venues. The effort was massive. Gear House Australia provided the on-field coverage of the tournament through a fleet of x5 HD super trucks, connected to 18 cameras at each venue. These were linked via Telstra’s Digital Video Network to provide multiple high-definition video feeds and media data services (for on-air production and communications) to a purpose built outside broadcast compound at the host venue, ANZ Stadium.

With a full house at 80,000 strong we hit new network records! High definition live-to-air feeds soared through to national and international broadcast networks such as Fox Sports, Fox International Channels, ABC, CCTV in China, Sony SIX in India and Eurosport so viewers from across the world could watch the tournament live.

This is another example of the power of the DVN2 and we are proud to say we were able to deliver the triumphant moment when James Troisi scored the victory goal. Congratulations to the Socceroos from everyone at Telstra!

Excerpt from Deutsche Welle on the politics of immigration policy in Germany, Europe and the world:

 

German politicians at odds over how to regulate immigration.  Politicians in Germany, a top destination for immigrants, are grappling with how best to channel the surge. A points-system like that in Canada might be the answer, some argue.

Germany’s attitude toward migration, and how the country will manage the surge of immigrants who want to live and work in Europe’s economic powerhouse: those are issues at the top of the agenda in German politics.

With an eye on the demographic development, many say Germany needs and depends on skilled migrants.

The parliamentary leader of the Social Democrats (SPD) in the Bundestag is one of them.

Thomas Oppermann again on Sunday urged the introduction of a points system, like that used in Canada, as a basis for recruiting skilled immigrants from around the world, telling the Bild am Sonntag newspaper that it makes sense to “re-establish the need for non-EU migrants on an annual basis.” Within the 28-nation European Union, nationals can move and relocate freely from one country to the next.

If many EU immigrants come to Germany, there is less demand for migrants from outside the European Union, the Social Democratic politician explained.

Demand-oriented system

Oppermann’s ideas don’t meet with unanimous approval.

“We don’t need new immigration regulations.” Gerda Hasselfeldt, parliamentary leader of the conservative Christian Social Union (CSU), said. The CDU’s Bavaria-based sister party is adamant that current regulations are sufficient: “It would only create more bureaucracy.”

Germany doesn’t need a points-system because it already has functioning criteria in place – a “demand-oriented system,” Stephan Sievert, a research associate at the Berlin Insitute for Population and Development, told DW.

Germany simplified procedures for immigrants from outside the EU by introducing a Blue Card system that grants entry to applicants with a university degree and a job offer with a minimum salary depending on the field.

But there is always room for improvement, argues Sievert. “We know that knowledge of the German language is a factor that facilitates integration,” he says, suggesting the government could come up with a way to reward potential immigrants for their language skills by making immigration to Germany easier.

Points-system as a gatekeeper

In 1967, Canada was the first country to introduce a points-based system, assessing applicants on various factors linked to labor market demand and an immigrant’s potential to meet that demand.

Australia and the UK also have points-based immigration selection systems.

Australia operates a “hybrid” system for skilled migration, with both employer sponsorship options and points-based visas. The UK introduced a points-based program in 2008. According to a 2011 report by the CentreForum thinktank, “the aim of the points based migration system (PBS) is to provide an objective measure of a migrant’s potential contribution to the UK economy.”

The criteria include English language ability, the capacity to support oneself financially, age, previous experience and already having a job on a shortage occupation list. continues here

Article from The Conversation Australia about females in trades apprenticeships or technical training:

Where are the female tradies?  Male domination of trades and trade courses in the automotive, construction, mining and energy sectors is entrenched above 95%, despite the substantial pay advantage compared to other trades such as hairdressing and hospitality.

In an effort to uncover why so few girls pursue the male-dominated trade careers, I set off to schools with my pink hard hat and voice recorder. At each school I visited I could count the number of female students doing a manual trade course on one hand.

 

 

Why are the trades male dominated?

The research interviews with secondary school students (mostly females) and educators revealed that the “blokey” image of the trades continues to put off girls: “They are for the boys who don’t do academic,” was a common message.

Just like students worldwide, those I interviewed said that most students are aiming for professional employment.

Male domination of the manual trades is persistent and resistant to change – unlike the professions and management where women are breaking through the glass ceiling.

Gender segregation of the trades is attributed to:

  • Gender essentialist views that women are innately better nurturers and service workers and men are adept at physical and problem-solving skills. These views have been perpetuated through popular culture (particularly toys, TV and books) and reinforced by parents, peers, teachers and employers; and
  • Past protection by employers and unionists, through industrial law, of the manual trades and higher pay for men.

At the four schools I visited, manual trade courses, trade experience and “try a trade” days were on offer to all students. But a staff member explained that due to cultural influences, “stereotypes are set by year 10 and mostly girls wouldn’t even consider a trade.”

The higher rewards and female role models associated with professional employment have attracted women, and women are attaining high educational standards. Yet they are largely segregated in service professions in health and education.

The barriers to the manual trades have been crafted over many years and remain solid as a rock.

Why does this matter?

It matters to female students. They felt like they were missing out:

  • Why doesn’t Mr Y send us lots of emails about trades? We get lots of colourful stuff about uni.
  • I had no clue the wages were that different.

Young women who pursue a non-professional path risk a low-wage future in female-dominated trades like hairdressing. As soon as students walk out of the school gate into an apprenticeship, the males will start taking home about 20% more in their pay than their female peers.

It matters to industry. It is claimed higher female participation in the trades could reduce skills shortages and reduce business costs.

In 2014, the Minerals Council of Australia reported that national skills shortages unnecessarily raise costs and create a sub-optimal investment climate for the mining sector: “It is economically sound to expand the labour pool by tapping into under-represented groups such as female and indigenous workers.”

This talk has to become action. Apprenticeships are declining in Australia, including the skills-shortage areas in the mining, energy and auto sectors. Industry has been drawing on skilled migrant workers through the 457 visa scheme.

What needs to be done?

Improved economic security through trades for girls is being tackled on two fronts: advocacy to improve wages in low-paid female-dominated trades and action to better inform girls about manual trades as a career option. A comprehensive range of recommendations on education and industry policy to encourage girls into male-dominated trades has just been launched by economic Security4Women.

The female students in my research said more girls would do the manual trades:

  • if they knew more about the trades;
  • if more girls did the trades, making it less intimidating; and
  • if they weren’t made fun of.

They wanted more women in trades as role models to visit their schools:

Maybe if there were more workers coming to schools talking about what it’s like in industry […] we would wake up to ourselves.

They wanted media images of women in trades that they could relate to. Not like:

… in the movies you see a male plumber, fat, with their [sic] bum crack showing.

Not all, but some staff were aware that unless girls pursue maths to a high level in senior school, they can almost say goodbye to male-dominated careers like engineering and manual trades.

Staff wanted to do more to encourage girls. They expressed concern at the lack of time and resources in schools for career support and for building industry links.

It is reported that more boys are being inspired by celebrity chef role models to trade the electric drills for the food processors in hospitality. Perhaps these role models are the key to breaking down entrenched gender stereotypes for women in trades too.
