Understanding equity strategies of training providers

Wage inequality Australia

Limited research has been undertaken to identify and examine systemic issues associated with the provision of vocational education and training (VET) to equity groups. In this report John McIntyre, Veronica Volkoff, Mez Egg and Nicky Solomon focus on the institutional relationships and policies that determine equity provision, and propose principles for framing equity practices. The principles are: local policies and strategies must reflect the complexities of disadvantage and need to consider the context of the community; equity strategies must reach the appropriate disadvantaged individuals through well managed, committed and flexible staff who have adequate resources; and, equity strategies must be continuously reviewed and re-invented to remain effective and dynamic.
