What makes vocational training programs in schools work? A study of New South Wales and Queensland schools

8 Feb 2006
Description

Vocational education and training (VET) programs for young people in schools have significantly expanded over the past decade. Janet Porter investigates stakeholders’ views on school-based vocational programs in New South Wales and Queensland schools from 2000 to 2002, and examines the objectives and expected outcomes for students, school VET coordinators, trainers and employers.

The research finds considerable diversity in implementation at the local level, while at the broad level the two main objectives of facilitating transition between school and work and providing a highly skilled workforce are common for all stakeholders. Challenges facing the implementation of a school-based VET program are summarised and solutions offered.
