Emerging futures in VET policy in Australia and overseas
MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines recent developments in vocational education in Aotearoa New Zealand and England to put the recently announced changes in Australia in context. It finds common themes in seeking to deal with skills shortages by making vocational education 'industry-led', however each country has adopted different mechanisms to reform the sector. Interestingly, no country is increasing market mechanisms in vocational education. This contrasts with higher education, which all countries are marketising more.
