1 Deep and Wide - Andy Stanley
Auteur : Andy Stanley
Genre : Christianity
Nearly 2,000 years ago, Jesus started a movement that has grown like wildfire throughout history. Author and pastor Andy Stanley draws from Scripture and over 25 years of pastoral experience to bring to life the irresistible nature of this movement known as the Church.

With surprising candor and transparency pastor Andy Stanley explains how one of America’s largest churches began with a high-profile divorce and a church split.

But that’s just the beginning…

Deep and Wide provides church leaders with an in-depth look into North Point Community Church and its strategy for creating churches unchurched people absolutely love to attend. Andy writes,

            “Our goal is to create weekend experiences so compelling and helpful that     even the most skeptical indivi

Fellowship
2 Vocational Fellowship - T. Austin-Sparks
Auteur : T. Austin-Sparks
Genre : Christianity
Fellowship with God. That is a deep, and inexhaustible matter. Fellowship with God. A very great deal of weakness, confusion and failure is traceable to one basic defect: it is failure to recognise the real nature of God’s call to any life, to any instrument. The real nature of God’s call to you, to me, either individually or collectively, is a call into fellowship with Himself. We have other ideas about what it is to be a Christian, to "come to the Lord", however we may put it, but the fundamental thing about any call of God to any life, to any instrument, His choice of any vessel, the fundamental factor is this upon which everything else is based where He is concerned: fellowship with Himself.

5 How to Survive a Shipwreck - Jonathan Martin
Auteur : Jonathan Martin
Genre : Christianity
Life is turbulent. On that, we can all agree. Disappointed dreams, broken relationships, identity crises, vocational hang-ups, wounds from the past—there are so many ways life can send us crashing up against the rocks.

In this deeply personal book, Jonathan Martin draws from his own stories of failure and loss to find the love that can only be discovered on the bottom. How to Survive a Shipwreck is an invitation to trust the goodness of God and the resilience of your soul. Jonathan’s clarion call is this: No matter how hard you’ve fallen, no matter how much you’ve been hurt, help is on the way—just when you need it most.

With visionary artistry and pastoral wisdom, Jonathan Martin reveals what we’ll need to make it through those uncharted waters, how we can use these defining experiences to live out of our depths, and why it will then become impossible t

6 Deep and Wide - Andy Stanley
Auteur : Andy Stanley
Genre : Christianity
Andy Stanley’s bestselling and award-winning vision for the local church now includes bonus content: a study guide, church staff helps, and an interview with Andy on the most frequently asked questions about Deep and Wide.

With surprising candor and transparency pastor Andy Stanley explains how one of America’s largest churches began with a high-profile divorce and a church split.

But that’s just the beginning…

For the first time, Andy explains his strategy for preaching and programming to “dual audiences”: mature believers and cynical unbelievers. He argues that preaching to dual audiences doesn’t require communicators to “dumb down” the content. According to Stanley, it’s all in the approach.

You’ll be introduced to North Point's spiritual formation model: The Five Faith Catalysts. Leaders r

Guidance
10 Vocational Guidance for Girls - Marguerite Stockman Dickson
Auteur : Marguerite Stockman Dickson
Genre : Education
It is safe to say that no woman, in our own country at least, escapes entirely the unrest which this controversy has brought. Even the most conservative and "old-fashioned" of women know that their daughters are living in a world already changed from the days of their own young womanhood; and few indeed fail to see that these changes are but forerunners of others yet to come. They know little, perhaps, of the right or wrong of woman's industrial position, but "woman in industry" is all about them. They perhaps have never heard of Ellen Key's arraignment of existing marriage and sex relations, but they cannot fail to see unhappy marriages in their own circle. They may care little about the suffrage question, but they can hardly avoid hearing echoes of strife over the subject of "votes for women". And however much or little women are personally conscious of the significance of these q

Auteur : Rick Flann
Genre : Christianity
Youth Ministry Bi-Vocational Survival Guide is written specifically for the bi-vocational pastor and is chock-full of nuggets of gold. Authors Rick Flann and Chris Pope explain how to manage time well, prioritize effectively and lead in a way that empowers both the bi-vocational pastor and those they lead and care for on a daily basis.

The Apostle Paul, a tent maker, was one of the greatest people ever to walk the face of this earth. He knew what his mission was and he was willing to do whatever it took to accomplish the task that God had set before him. Paul was bi-vocational. He proclaimed the Gospel, planted churches and pastored people, yet he never demanded his right to a paycheck from the church (1 Cor 9:12). Maybe you are a modern day tent maker, but unlike the Apostle Paul who always seemed to come out on top as a spiritual super star, you are sinking under the pressu

Auteur : Australian Journal of Career Development

As editors of the recently published Vocational psychological and organisational perspectives on career: Towards a multidisciplinary dialogue (Collin & Patton, 2009a), we have considerable interest in this particular issue of the Australian Journal of Career Development. This short piece will first present the purpose and thesis of that book and, in the light of them, will then comment on the four papers in this journal. The book suggests that to under stand the multi dimensional and multilayered nature of career, 'it has to be studied in a similarly multilayered and multi-perspectival way, and, indeed, it has been' (p. 3). Scholars have pointed out that there is a wide array of disciplines including economics, sociology, anthropology, geography, political science, various branches of psychology (e.g. industrial/ organisational (I/O), vocational, counselling), psychiatry, educatio

33 Breakthrough In Vocational And Technical Education - Song Seng Law
Auteur : Song Seng Law
Genre : Business & Personal Finance
There has been much international effort to improve or transform Vocational and Technical Education (VTE). However, the outcomes often remain elusive. VTE continues to be largely shunned by society as a sector of education for low-achievers and academic failures.

A Breakthrough in VTE: The Singapore Story explores the Singapore experience that was made possible through strategic planning, organisational excellence, innovation and ingenuity. It is a compelling story of how the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) began to transform lives and change its image over a period of fifteen years (1992–2007). This book, based on a first-hand CEO account, vividly captures the sort of leadership, policy choices, fundamental principles and capabilities in the journey of transformation.

Inspired by her haunted and tragic childhood, the Headmistress has other ideas.

This second edition of The Autism Job Club includes a new Foreword by Steve Silberman, author of the best-selling NeuroTribes, along with an Afterword by the authors.

43 Global Perspectives on Recognising Non-formal and Informal Learning - Madhu Singh
Auteur : Madhu Singh
Genre : Education
This book deals with the relevance of recognition and validation of non-formal and informal learning in education and training, the workplace and society. In an increasing number of countries, it is at the top of the policy and research agenda ranking among the possible ways to redress the glaring lack of relevant academic and vocational qualifications and to promote the development of competences and certification procedures which recognise different types of learning, including formal, non-formal and informal learning.  The aim of the book is therefore to present and share experience, expertise and lessons in such a way that enables its effective and immediate use across the full spectrum of country contexts, whether in the developing or developed world. It examines the importance of meeting institutional and political requirements that give genuine value to the recognition o

University
44 Zombie University - Sinead Murphy
Auteur : Sinead Murphy
Genre : Philosophy
In this full-blooded attack on the institutions of higher education, Sinéad Murphy shows the neoliberal university for what it really is: a zombie institution, churning out generations of the thinking dead.

What if we have lost the ability to think straight? And what if this is why the shocking injustices of contemporary life go unchallenged in spite of being widely acknowledged? And what if the institution that is supposed to help us to think is in on the act? 

This is the thesis put forward by Zombie University, which shows the modern university as the fulcrum of our societies’ mode of control, tempting more and more young people to rituals of education that work to keep us down rather than raise us up.

47 The Challenges of Policy Transfer in Vocational Skills Development: National Qualifications Frameworks and the Dual Model of Vocational Training in International Cooperation - Markus Maurer
Auteur : Markus Maurer
Genre : Education
In the context of renewed global interest in the development of vocational skills, policy makers in many countries as well as representatives of technical organisations often hope to reform existing training systems by borrowing models and policies that seem to work elsewhere. One of these prominent models is that of 'National Qualifications Framework', the use of which now spans the entire globe. On a much smaller scale, the 'Dual Model' of vocational training – a systematic combination of school and workplace-based learning that is common in a number of countries in Western Europe – has also gained attention in international cooperation. Bringing together contributions from authors involved in both the theory and practice of vocational skills training development, this volume analyses the challenges that are tied to the transfer of these two dominant models in the context of inter

48 Shaping the Futures of (vocational) Education and Work - Gabriele Molzberger
Auteur : Gabriele Molzberger
Genre : Education
Education and work are moving towards an open, but uncertain future. Research on vocational and continuing education constantly needs to reassure the conditions of educational systems, current concepts of VET and work, educational policies, and its own assumptions in ascertaining theory of VET. In this context, modernisation is a significant paradigm. It refers to new ideological, socio-economic, structural and institutional qualities. This volume analyses interdependencies and complexities of research, politics and practice of vocational, further and continuing education. With contributions from European VET researchers it assembles critical reflective, empirical, cross-cultural and historical perspectives. The volume discusses the dynamic changes of work and education both in regional and global labour markets. Central issues are transformations of vocational education and work, the i

50 Ditching Shop Class: Eliminating Vocational Education in America's Public Schools - Joe Petito
Auteur : Joe Petito
Genre : Education
Common Core. NCLB. Differentiation. A through G. Race To The Top. Despite all this, we continue to push kids through school and out the other end with little to show for the time invested, our efforts, and the public's money. Meanwhile, the Achievement gap, the Poverty Gap widen, and kids arrive at the high school commencement stage without basic skills to obtain and hold employment.

Ditching Shop Class: Eliminating Vocational Education in America's Public Schools, is an educator's analysis of how and why we have eliminated vocational and technical education in public secondary schools, and what this has done to skew education into a single Track where every kid is made to prepare her/himself for obtaining a university degree, no matter their interest or capability.

The skewed disposition on the part of educators, a bias toward one style of education, has in turn cr
