The National Women's Vocational Education and Training Strategy--An Implementation Guide.
Australian National Training Authority, Brisbane.
This implementation guide provides systems and providers of vocational education and training (VET) and related organizations with guidance in using Australia's National Women's Vocational Education and Training Strategy. Part 1 describes the nature of the strategy and presents a visual summary. Part 2 discusses the impetus for the strategy and the rationale for its outcomes and priorities. It covers the following: context; barriers to participation and success; benefits; priorities; outcomes (increased number of women completing VET programs, increased number of women with VET qualifications at all levels, women distributed more broadly across fields of study, increased participation and improved outcomes for specific groups of women); and indicators used in measuring outcomes. Part 3 presents possible actions for VET systems, providers, and related organizations through a discussion of the strategy's approaches and a model action plan. It sets out a formal implementation process that correlates organization with mechanism and role. Discussed next are the focus areas and approaches in the strategy and suggested actions for systems, providers, and related organizations. The model action plan is set out with a cover page and section for each outcome. Each outcome section presents a summary of the focus areas and strategies in table format, current state/local situation, improvement indicators, and table for actions with responsible agency/personnel, resources required, and time frame. Contains 49 references and a glossary. (YLB)
