Stocktake of Equity Reports and Literature in Vocational Education and Training.
Golding, Barry; Volkoff, Veronica; Ferrier, Fran; Marshall, Joyce; McGrath, Sue
This report provides an informed "snapshot," based on recent literature, of barriers to vocational education and training (VET) for target groups and an annotated bibliography of recent reports. Part A is a "solutions-oriented" overview of most VET-related equity research and reports since 1990. It discusses Australian National Training Authority access and equity principles and key equity target groups and defines terms. Part A then presents a brief assessment of barriers to access, participation, and outcomes for five target groups: women; Aboriginal and Torres Strait people; people with a disability; people from a non-English speaking background; and residents in rural and remote communities. Each analysis includes the following: an introduction (snapshot of the group's situation, definition of the group, demographics); barriers limiting access and participation and outcomes; and strategies and policies for improvement of access and participation and outcomes. Key findings, common barriers, and strategies and policies precede a list of 76 references. Part B consists of summaries of selected literature and reports on equity. Summaries are categorized by the five target groups. A general equity category includes reports that cover equity issues more broadly. Each summary has these components: title, publication details, synopsis, information on whether the report has an implementation/program or research/policy focus, key concerns, and key findings/recommendations.
