Framing the Future: People, Places, Projects.
This publication describes six Framing the Future (FTF) staff development projects that use work-based learning with different project teams and learning activities varying from general awareness to specific skills development in Australia. "The Center for Human Services--Working for Its People" describes a project that introduced a Community Services Training Package to provide assessment opportunities dependent on students' circumstances and needs. "Chubb--Framing Its Own Future" tells how FTF found out from staff who will use the training package, what is important, and what support/resources they need to get the most out of training. "Embracing the Future: Sydney Institute of Technology" describes how FTF provided a forum to establish a dialog on how heads of studies could manage their changing roles and to plan future roles. "The Future for Children--TAFE SA Child Studies Program" discusses a project to share and promote ideas and models of how institutes work closely with industry to provide more flexible and effective training. "Seeing Food Afresh--Victorian Food Industry Training Board" focuses on introducing and implementing a training package for the seafood industry. "Sowing the Seeds for the Future: University of Ballarat SMB TAFE Campus" describes how three departments--rural, hospitality, and building studies--used FTF to provide training in a changing environment with industry as an active partner in the learning process.
