Schools, vocational education and training, and partnerships: Capacity-building in rural and regional communities

Education Schools Australia

Using case studies from seven rural and regional areas, this report looks at the impact of schools and vocational education and training (VET) on community capacity. It finds that communities have developed 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, including the need to keep young people at school, as well as providing a skills base for the local area.
