Mr Albanese asked the Minister for Employment Services, upon notice, on 11 September 2003:

(1) Using the Post Programme Monitoring Survey would the Minister for Employment Services outline the occupation of employment obtained by former employment assistance participants over the duration of ESC2.

(2) Could this information be provided for all employment assistance programmes.


Mr Brough (Minister for Employment Services and Minister Assisting the Minister for Defence) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The occupation of former employment assistance participants is collected under the Australian Standard Classification of Occupations (ASCO) classification. The table below shows the proportion of former participants employed 3 months after leaving assistance in each classification by programme. Analysis of outcomes data in the longer term reveals that people who find employment following programs generally move into higher skilled jobs over time.
