Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 32 Includes appendices pp. 33-36 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: With the Australian VET sector moving towards a more competitive model of provision, prospective students should have greater choice in where they study and what they study. A competitive market also means that VET providers should make available information about course outcomes. This report looks at the potential use of information from the Student Outcomes Survey, including the use of student course satisfaction information and post-study outcomes, as a means of determining markers of training quality. The main recommendation is that a 'scoreboard' approach of post-study outcomes is adopted providing average outcomes by provider and field of education for a number of employment- and training-related variables.Availability: (1)
