• BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY TRAINING ORGANISATION (BCITO) - Returns from Training

    Scarlatti's work with BCITO aims to evaluate the value of industry training to the building, painting and decorating industry. The work uses a model of the economic benefit of training along with employer interviews and surveys to source key inpts using a 'wisdom of crowds' approach.

  • NEW ZEALAND YOUNG FARMERS - RETURN FROM TALENT
    Scarlatti developed a model to estimate the economic benefit to the farming sector of attracting talented youth into farm management and rural professional support roles. The model extended prior work to quantify the impact of management training on farm businesses by considering the impact of other ways to grow human capability.

  • WOMEN IN TRADES INITIATIVE - BASELINE FOR WOMEN'S PARTICIPATION IN TRADES

    A number of industry training organisations share an interest in encouraging women into careers in which they have traditionally been under-represented. Similarly, training organisations share an interest in understanding the impacts that their training has on the careers of their alumni. Scarlatti is currently undertaking a programme of research designed to address these areas of interest, working closely with a number of New Zealand industry training organisations including BCITO, Competenz and the Skills Organisation.
