摘要

青少年學生面對升學就業選擇時,往往尋求家人和朋友幫助。但對於缺乏文化及社會資本的基層家庭學生來說,其識見及可得到的資訊有限,他們參與校內或校外的升學就業活動更為重要。在這些活動中,透過「商界-學校」協作推出的活動,能為弱勢學生提供更實際的升學就業資訊及職場體驗。本研究於2013年收集了3,800多位曾參與香港一項「商界-學校」協作計劃的中學生的問卷數據,並以多元迴歸模型分析方法,探討弱勢學生參與升學就業活動與他們掌握升學就業技能的關係。結果顯示,若把學生的個人及家庭背景因素(性別、出生地、家庭結構及社經地位)納入分析,弱勢學生透過參與由商界機構提供的升學就業活動,對他們掌握升學及就業技能方面具有顯著的正面影響。

Abstract

In most cases, adolescents seek help from their parents and peers when facing the post-secondary decision: continuing education or going for immediate employment. However to those from underprivileged families lacking cultural and social capitals, the exposure and information accessible are limited in preparing them for future development. In such case, participation in activities inside and outside of school is important to them. In particular, activities initiated in the model of “business–school” partnership are seen as good sources of practical information and relevant experiences. The present study collected survey data from a large-scale “business–school” partnership project in Hong Kong, involving about 3,800 secondary students in 2013. Multiple regression modeling was conducted to examine the relationship between students’ participation in those activities under the project and their skills to prepare for further education and employment. Results showed that, when personal and family backgrounds (i.e., gender, place of birth, family structure, socioeconomic status) are taken into account, participation in such activities has significantly positive impact on developing underprivileged students’ skills to prepare for further education and employment.
