  • PLS Title Technical and vocational education and training for young people has a small positive effect on employment outcomes.
  • PLS Description Many young people in developing countries work in low quality jobs that have low potential for career development or supporting economic growth. This is particularly problematic for developing countries given the continually significant labour productivity gap between developing and developed regions. With increasing emphasis on work and skills based solutions to economic completion and poverty there is a renewed focus on TVET. This review examines the effectiveness of these TVET interventions on employment and employability outcomes of young people in low- and middle-income countries, and which factors may moderate these effects.

  • Spanish PLS Los programas de ausentismo escolar aumentan la asistencia, pero se necesitan mejores programas y evidencia.
  • Spanish PLS Description El ausentismo es un problema comúnmente reconocido. Muchos gobiernos han aplicado políticas anti-ausentismo y han gastado grandes cantidades de dinero para mitigar el problema. En el mejor de los casos, las tasas de ausentismo se han mantenido estables, y a menudo han aumentado. Los programas de intervención de ausentismo apuntan a aumentar la asistencia escolar. Los programas de intervención de ausentismo son diversos, apuntan a diferentes tipos de factores de riesgos, y utilizan una gran variedad de métodos para intervenir. Las intervenciones pueden estar dirigidas a factores de riesgo individuales, tales como ansiedad o la fobia escolar, baja autoestima, habilidades sociales y condiciones médicas; factores familiares, como la comunicación y el apoyo parental, la disciplina y la gestión de contingencias, la participación parental y la comunicación con la escuela; y factores escolares, como el clima escolar, las políticas de asistencias, la relación entre maestros y estudiantes, y el bullying. Algunas intervenciones se dirigen a múltiples factores de riesgo en los tres niveles. Los métodos utilizados pueden ir desde un taller de un día para estudiantes y padres, hasta un programa anual de componentes múltiples que considere orientación, tutorías y manejo de casos.
