National Centre for Vocational Education Research, Leabrook (Australia).
This publication presents a consolidated national picture of activity in recreation, leisure, and personal enrichment programs in Australia. It also details highlights, key features, and characteristics of activity in personal enrichment programs in 1996. Information has been collected from two main training provider groups: adult community education providers and technical and further education and other government providers. Section 1 focuses on key features and characteristics of personal enrichment education and training (PEET) programs. It reports that most clients are in programs offered by community providers; the majority are female; clients are mainly located in capital cities; and personal enrichment programs are predominantly funded through fee-for-service arrangements with individual clients. Section 2 presents PEET client information, including the following: the majority are female and older than those studying vocational programs; females participate in more personal enrichment programs than males across all geographic regions for all sectors; and clients are mainly located in capital cities. Section 3 provides PEET course information, including enrollments by field of study; enrollments by field of study, provider, and sex; and course annual hours by field of study, provider, and sex. Section 4 presents data on PEET modules: enrollments by area of learning; enrollments by area of learning, provider, and sex; and hours by area of learning, provider, and sex. Technical and explanatory notes are appended. (YLB)
