It is funded by a two year Australia Research Council (ARC) Linkages grant and led by Prof. Mark Considine and Prof. Brian Howe from the Centre for Public Policy and Associate Prof. Linda Hancock from Deakin University, in partnership with the Brotherhood of St Laurence, CEDA and the National Institute of Economic and Industry Research (NIEIR).

Effective measures for school-to-work transition in the vocational education system : lessons from Australia to Korea /

by Jung, Tae-Hwa | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Misko, Josie | Kisun, Lee | Dawe, Susan.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2004Description: PDF.Summary: The importance of close connections between vocational education and training (VET) systems and industry is highlighted in this report. The report finds that any system of entry-level training, which aims to help students make a successful transition from school to work, must have support mechanisms and frameworks in place to enable accurate assessment of industry and labour market needs. From Australia's perspective, the Korean experience provides useful insights to improving school retention rates, and establishing formal pathways for VET students who are not undertaking apprenticeships and traineeships. From the Korean perspective, useful lessons include developing inter-sectoral linkages between industry and education, applying flexible teaching and training methods, implementing a national qualifications framework, and introducing apprenticeship-type arrangements.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
