Lifelong Learning: Developing a Training Culture. Papers Presented at the Concurrent Sessions on Research into a Training Culture at the Conference, "Creating Our Future: A New Training Culture for Australia" (Brisbane, Australia, August 1998).
Robinson, Chris, Ed.; Arthy, Kareena, Ed.
This book contains seven papers from a conference on lifelong learning and creation of a new training culture for Australia. "Promoting a Training Culture in Industry" (Chris Robinson) discusses the extent to which a training culture exists in Australia. The results of a 1997 survey of Australian employers' satisfaction with vocational education and training (VET) are discussed in "Employers' Perceptions of Training and the Way Forward" (Paul Fairweather). "The Relevance of a Training Culture to Small Business in Australia" (Jennifer Gibb) summarizes what recent research on VET has concluded about small businesses' need for and commitment to training. "Research and a Training Culture: Implications for Large and Small Businesses" (Rod McDonald) focuses on the idea of a training culture at the enterprise level, and "The Elements of a Training Culture" (Andy Smith) looks at qualitative evidence to suggest what might constitute an enterprise training culture. "Individual and Enterprise Investment in Learning in a Rapidly Changing Economy" (Gerald Burke, Michael Long, Jeff Malley, Phillip McKenzie) examines factors inhibiting or promoting investment in training. The relationship between workplace learning, change, and research is considered in "What Does Research Tell Us about Developing a Training Culture?" (Ian Falk, Robin Sefton, Stephen Billett). Several papers include substantial bibliographies. (MN)
