Exploring locality: the impact of context on Indigenous vocational education and training aspirations and outcomes

23 Apr 2004
Description

Susan Gelade and Tom Stehlik examine the impact of urban, regional, and remote location on Indigenous vocational education and training (VET) students' aspirations and outcomes. They finds the availability of desired courses, teaching staff, and community attitudes to learning in the various locations influence the successful outcomes of Indigenous students. However, successful outcomes other than those related to employment or further education can emerge from VET studies. Accordingly, the authors suggest benefits such as improved literacy and confidence, and community wellbeing should be considered when formulating Indigenous learning approaches.
