Abstract

Vocational education and training provides a constructive and meaningful role in promoting education, training and employment opportunities for Indigenous peoples in Australia. First, the paper overviews Australia's national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander strategy for vocational education and training, Partners in a Learning Culture. This paper explores some of the issues emerging from a focus group discussion by key, mid to senior level Indigenous stakeholders on the strategy's potential for promoting Indigenous vocational education and training. A range of critical issues were identified that call for a 'talking-up' of vocational education and training for Indigenous peoples. The findings of this paper are of significance to researchers, educators, policy-makers and other stakeholders with an interest in advancing equity and best practice in vocational education and training for Indigenous Australians.
