Section 2 lays out a vision and principles of VE in Australian schools. Section 3 describes the following key elements of Australia's framework for VE: (1) vocational education and training; (2) enterprise and vocational learning; (3) student support services; (4) business and community partnerships; (5) effective institutional and funding arrangements; and (6) monitoring and evaluation. Section 4 lists Australia's national priorities for VE for 2001 and details implementation strategies for each of the six key elements of VE. The strategies are presented in implementation strategy tables consisting of the following components: the area of specific activity; agreed-upon broad outcomes; indicative time lines for each outcome; key agencies involved in achieving the outcome; and examples of key actions for achieving each outcome. Section 5 discusses factors related to arrangements for state and territory government systems and nongovernmental education authorities and schools that influence Australia's national implementation strategy. Section 6 presents four recommendations regarding the strategy's implementation. (MN)
