National Centre for Vocational Education Research, Leabrook (Australia).
Australia's second National Research and Evaluation Strategy for Vocational Education and Training (VET), which covers the period 2001-2003, builds on the following major themes contained in the first national strategy, which covered 1997-2000: stakeholder orientation, national coordination, and the importance of effective dissemination. The second national strategy also specifies the following new priorities, which were identified through consultations with VET stakeholders in 1999-2000: (1) the economics of VET; (2) lifelong learning and the social and community impact of VET; (3) innovation and the changing skills of Australia's work force; (4) transitions from education to work; (5) the VET provider; (6) the quality of teaching and learning; (7) outcomes of VET; (8) equity in VET; (9) international comparisons of VET; and (10) future development of the VET sector. Other topics addressed in the second national strategy include the following: supporting the National Strategy for Vocational Education and Training 1998-2003; the role of the National Centre for Vocational Education Research; the role of the National Managed VET Research and Evaluation Program; the role of the Australian National Training Authority key research centers and partners; the dissemination of VET research; and Australia's place in the international VET research community.
