Vocational Education and Training: Directions and Resource Allocations for 1996, 1997, 1998. Report to the Ministerial Council.
Australian National Training Authority, Brisbane.
These three separate reports detail current and anticipated directions of vocational education and training (VET) in Australia in 1996, 1997, and 1998, respectively, and the Australian National Training Authority's recommendations regarding resource allocations for each of the 3 years. Each report examines some or all of the following: VET's planning framework (challenges faced by the VET sector in the year under consideration; the impact of changes in employment levels and the structure of industry on work force demand for VET; the national training system's performance); national strategic directions (best practice and quality assurance, individual client groups, training market development, accreditation, assessment and recognition of training, access and equity); the planning process; planned activities for the year; funding arrangements (approval of profiles, infrastructure funding, total funding outcomes); and recommendations (including recommendations regarding recurrent funding for states and territories and infrastructure funding). All three reports contain appendixes summarizing maintenance of effort and activity by state and territory. In addition, the "1996 Format for Reporting Activity" is appended to the report for 1996, and the "19 x 4 national matrix" is appended to the reports for 1997 and 1998. (MN)
