An investigation of TAFE efficiency /

by Fieger, Peter | National Centre for Vocational Education Research | Karmel, Tom | Stanwick, John.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 21Summary: Governments are interested in the relative efficiency of institutions, and in addition, information on efficiency can be used by individual institutions to benchmark themselves against their peers. The main factor that was found to affect efficiency, as defined in this paper, was degree of remoteness. Further, institute size is an important factor, with smaller institutes tending to be less efficient. This paper employs a mathematical technique known as Data Envelopment Analysis to examine the efficiency of TAFE institutes.Availability: (1)

by National Centre for Vocational Education Research.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Education Research 2019Description: 21 p. : PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: This publication presents information on employers’ use and views of the vocational education and training (VET) system. The findings relate to the various ways in which Australian employers use the VET system to meet their skill needs and their satisfaction with the training. Australian employers can engage with the VET system in three main ways, by: having jobs that require vocational qualifications ; having apprentices and trainees ; using nationally recognised training. Also presented in this publication is information on employers’ use and satisfaction with unaccredited training, and recruitment difficulties experienced in the last 12 months. The figures in this publication are derived from the Survey of Employers’ Use and Views of the VET System. A total of 7007 interviews were conducted with Australian employers between February and June 2019 and the results relate to employers’ training experiences in the 12 months preceding their interview. Note for the purposes of this publication, nationally recognised training excludes training that was part of an apprenticeship or traineeship as employers’ use and views of apprentices and trainees is reported separately Availability: (1)

Response to the stronger futures for all young Victorians : discussion paper on the youth transtions system / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Duizend, Emily.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2010Description: 28 P. PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback and recommendations to the DEECD/DIIRD discussion paper on the youth transitions system. The Brotherhood has taken a leading role in trialling innovative approaches that re-engage disadvantaged children and young people in learning and skill building that leads to successful transitions to work. As the Stronger futures for all young Victorians discussion paper details, a substantial range of reforms to education and vocational training are being implemented through Victorian and Commonwealth Government initiatives. This commitment to improve both the quality and capacity of learning for young people is very welcome. However, the Brotherhood believes that there is still a range of additional reforms required to both significantly improve completion rates and to enable stronger transitions through school and into work opportunities for all young people. Such reforms need to extend to young people throughout their school years and beyond. We note that the scope of this discussion paper is limited to the 15-24 age range. We are concerned that some issues related to successful transitions, including literacy and numeracy support and pathway planning, require attention earlier than the age of 15. A broader policy focus is required. In addition, we are concerned that, within the paper, there is little consideration of the distinctive needs of 'older' young people in the 19-24 age groups.Availability: (1)

Skilling and reskilling for our (greener) future /

by Karmel, Tom | National Centre for Vocational Resource.

Publisher: Adelaide, S.A. National Centre for Vocational Research 2010Description: 17 p. : ill. tables.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented to the 2009 Economic and Social Outlook Conference, University of Melbourne, 5?6 November 2009Summary: This paper was presented at the Economic and Social Outlook Conference, 5/6 November 2009, ; at the University of Melbourne. It takes a sceptical view of the push for 'green skills', arguing that skills required in the labour market evolve relatively slowly, and that the way business operates is driven by changing costs, new technologies and new regulations, with sustainability being only one of many factors. In addition, the presentation provides some data on 'sustainable' courses in tertiary education and then looks at three areas which have implications for the public investment in education and training: the levels of skill acquired through apprenticeships and traineeships, the pay-off to undertaking VET qualifications, and the role of diplomas in the labour market.Availability: (1)

Keynote.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Berwyn Clayton has been involved in the VET sector for over 25 years. After beginning her career as a teacher, Berwyn became a pioneer in promoting the value of research. With a record of over 30 publications and 25 conference papers or journal articles, Berwyn has created an impressive body of knowledge, particularly in areas such as assessment and the capability of the VET workforce. Berwyn is also dedicated to supporting and mentoring new researchers, in particular those who were formerly VET practitioners, as she was. Berwyn is currently the Director of the Work-based Education Research Centre (WERC) at Victoria University. It was these attributes that saw Berwyn named VET Researcher of the Year, and give a keynote speech at the National Centre for Vocational Education Research's 2011 National VET Research Conference (No Frills). This speech provides an insight into Berwyn's journey into VET research and demonstrates her hallmark presentation style using pictures (chosen for their amusing as well as didactic impact) to guide us through the story. Her messages are directed at practitioner researchers.Availability: (1)
