Guide

VET retention in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

29 May 2017
Description

This good practice guide is based on the research project Enhancing training advantage for remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners by John Guenther et al. on behalf of Ninti One Limited. The project examines five unique and successful vocational education and training (VET) programs in remote areas and identifies how retention and completion can be improved (to improve employability) and what other indicators of success (apart from completion) are important outcomes of training in remote communities. The project makes a vital contribution to furthering our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experiences with VET in remote areas and explores the factors that boost engagement and retention in training and ensure that training meets the needs of these learners and their communities. This good practice guides synthesises the findings of the five case studies and looks at the factors that are important in enabling retention and ensuring good practice. More information on the research methods and individual case studies are available in the full report and the supporting documents.
