The following papers are included in the book: "The Influence of the Kangan Philosophy on Australian TAFE," by Leslie Claydon; "Attrition and Retention in TAFE," by Joy Cumming and Peter Mountney; "External Studies in TAFE," by Roy Farren; "A Review of Competency-Based Occupational Education," by Roger Harris and Robyn Schutte; "Educational Media in TAFE," by Brian Kenworthy; "Career Paths of Tradespersons," by Lucio Krbavac; "Curriculum Development in TAFE Trade Courses," by David Laird; "Curriculum Evaluation in TAFE," by David Mitchell; "TAFE Staff Development," by David Snewin; "Options for the Evaluation of TAFE Colleges," by Peter Thomson; "Access to TAFE for Disabled Persons," by Elaine Walker; and "The TAFE Transition Program," by Greg Woodburne.
