Geographical dimensions of social inclusion and VET in Australia: an overview

Education Labour Communities Immigration Australia

This paper provides a conceptual basis for a three-year (2011-13) research program exploring the capacity of individuals and groups to make transitions through learning, training and work across locations. Three research projects will examine how regional or community factors and social capital affect those transitions. The three projects are: the influence of job conditions on geographic labour mobility; migrant women in regional Australia; and neighbourhood factors in the decision to participate in post-school education and training and the labour market. A synopsis of each project is given in this paper.
