We are proud to announce our 2018 Fellows:
JOBS VICTORIA INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIPS
In partnership with DEDJTR, ten Jobs Victoria International Fellowships were offered in 2018. The ‘Jobs Victoria International Fellowships’ provide an opportunity for practitioners working within contracted Jobs Victoria partner organisations to investigate and explore models and best practice approaches overseas that deliver mainstream employment outcomes for jobseekers facing barriers to employment. The impact of international Fellowship research in this area will support the development of innovative models of delivering employment support within Victoria.
All Fellowships aligned with one of the following priority areas:
- Enabling jobseekers facing barriers to employment to secure and sustain employment, thus reducing the risk of their future long-term labour force exclusion
- Identifying strategies and practices that demonstrate new and innovative approaches to engaging employers in the delivery of employment support to jobseekers facing barriers to employment
- Identifying place-based or innovative strategies to support jobseekers impacted by changing employment and industry landscapes (e.g. loss of major employers, increased patterns of young people migrating from regional to metropolitan Victoria, other) to enter mainstream employment
- Identifying best practice government intervention to delivering employment support to jobseekers facing barriers to employment
The 2018 Fellowship recipients are listed below, each with a brief overview of their area of research and their contact details.
