Schools, Vocational Education and Training and Partnerships: Capacity-Building in Rural and Regional Communities

1 Jan 2006
Description

Using case studies from seven rural and regional areas, this report examines the impact of schools and vocational education and training (VET) on community capacity. Focusing on successful examples of school- VET partnerships it found that communities have developed at least three different models to organise school- VET partnerships and that rural areas are more likely to adopt a whole-of-community model, while regional areas have used a more specialised regional model. Successful partnerships are those that respond to community issues (a community-first rather than a program-first approach), including the need to keep young people at school, as well as providing a skills base for the local area.
