Linking vocational education and training with industry in Australia and China

1 Nov 2005
Description

Josie Misko, Lin Yufeng, Jiang Dayuan, Wu Quanquan and Wang Zerong examine the linkages between vocational education and training (VET) and industry in China and Australia. They detail each country's arrangements for the provision of industry advice to governments and discusses industry-specific programs and skill development activities, including apprenticeships. They note how changes in the economic, political and educational philosophies of Chinese governments have affected the operation of the linkages there, and how industry associations and organisations can play a larger role in the training of the population. They also note the importance of employer incentives for increasing the participation of industry in training.
