Interview with Cain Polidano on 'Outcomes from combining work and tertiary study'

By Cain Polidano Multimedia 2 June 2011


In this interview, Steve Davis talks with researcher Cain Polidano about the report 'Outcomes from combining work and tertiary study'. This study investigates the motivations for and the education and employment outcomes from working while studying for both VET and higher education students. While, in general, tertiary students who work while studying are less likely to complete than those who do not, being employed in the final year of study significantly improves the chances of finding full time employment in the first year following study.
