Research Reports into Professional Development.
Australian National Training Authority, Brisbane.
Five reports present findings of research into professional development (PD) issues in vocational education and training (VET) in Australia. "Lessons Learnt: An Analysis of Findings of Recent Evaluation Reports on PD in VET" (Kate Perkins) provides an overview of issues, insights, and ideas emerging from past PD experience that may be relevant to planning and implementation of future PD programs to support New Apprenticeships and other national initiatives. "Perceptions of VET Staff towards Recent National Training Reforms" (Michele Simons, Roger Harris) provides a brief summary of literature and current research in relation to VET teachers, trainers, and managers and their perceptions toward training reforms and explores PD implications. "Summary of PD Issues Emerging from Recent Reviews and Reports" (Roger Mathers et al.) is based on three related reviews of over 65 evaluations, reports, and papers and provides a summary of issues concerning delivery of recent PD programs and perceptions of VET staff toward training reforms. "Trends in Employment, Skill, and Qualification Requirements of Training Staff" (Roger Mathers) identifies trends occurring across VET sectors and explores PD issues that emerged. "Strategic Use of Professional Development to Implement VET Objectives, Volume 1: Final Report and Volume 2: Case Studies" (Roger Harris, Michele Simons) deals with change processes in the implementation of VET objectives and PD's role in supporting those processes (volume 1) and contains summaries of 10 case studies (volume 2).
