The Employment and Education Research Program focuses on understanding the social arrangements and institutions that shape patterns of education and employment in Australia.
The aim of the program is to conduct high quality research that contributes to academic understanding, as well as policy development and application, in this area.
This Research Program addresses various issues including:
- The impact of education and employment on individuals, including income, health, happiness and social contribution;
- The influence of contextual factors such as family situation, and wider social issues on education, employment and labour markets;
- How work is organised and could be reorganised.
