DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS THE MOST LIVEABLE CITY IN THE WORLD MELBOURNE!!! AGAIN.
MARVELLOUS Melbourne has been named the world’s most liveable city for the fifth year in a row. Melbourne has been the most liveable city in the world since 2011. The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Ranking rated 140 cities out of 100 in the areas of stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.
Marjorie Milner College believes that the fantastic Beauty Therapy, Hairdressing and Floristry Industry in Melbourne and Victoria contributed to this. With amazing events, for example the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, Salon Melbourne just to name a few. You can see why our industries have helped reclaim the crown for the fifth year. The training in Melbourne is fantastic, especially in the VET sector. The Floristry apprenticeship was first conceived in Melbourne back in 1977. Marjorie Milner College is the longest operating floristry school in Australia with its first class back in 1946. Many of the top salons and hairdressers live in Melbourne.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_gallery _builder_version=”4.0.7″ gallery_ids=”1362,1361,1360,1359″ show_pagination=”off” show_title_and_caption=”off” hover_enabled=”0″][/et_pb_gallery][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.0.7″ hover_enabled=”0″]
Marjorie Milner College is helping with the Victorian Training Awards again, another major event with over 850 people often in attendance at Crown Casino, Palladium. Look out for a twitter feed in the next week that demonstrates skills of the students.
How the rating works?
THE ECONOMIST INTELLIGENCE UNIT’S LIVEABILITY SURVEY
The concept of liveability is simple: it assesses which locations around the world provide the best or the worst living conditions. Assessing liveability has a broad range of uses, from benchmarking perceptions of development levels to assigning a hardship allowance as part of expatriate relocation packages. The Economist Intelligence Unit’s liveability rating quantifies the challenges that might be presented to an individual’s lifestyle in any given location, and allows for direct comparison between locations. Every city is assigned a rating of relative comfort for over 30 qualitative and quantitative factors across five broad categories: stability; healthcare; culture and environment; education; and infrastructure. Each factor in a city is rated as acceptable, tolerable, uncomfortable, undesirable or intolerable. For qualitative indicators, a rating is awarded based on the judgement of in-house analysts and in-city contributors. For quantitative indicators, a rating is calculated based on the relative performance of a number of external data points. The scores are then compiled and weighted to provide a score of 1–100, where 1 is considered intolerable and 100 is considered ideal. The liveability rating is provided both as an overall score and as a score for each category. To provide points of reference, the score is also given for each category relative to New York and an overall position in the ranking of 140 cities is provided. The suggested liveability scale Companies pay a premium (usually a percentage of a salary) to employees who move to cities where living conditions are particularly difficult and there is excessive physical hardship or a notably unhealthy environment. The Economist Intelligence Unit has given a suggested allowance to correspond with the rating. However, the actual level of the allowance is often a matter of company policy. It is not uncommon, for example, for companies to pay higher allowances—perhaps up to double The Economist Intelligence Unit’s suggested level.
