"An Enterprising Approach to Regional Growth: Implications for Policy and the Role of Vocational Education and Training" explores patterns of regional economic growth in Australia over the period 1984 to 2002 with the aim of identifying the drivers of variation in regional growth; the research also aimed to identify regional opportunities and the policies and practices that can assist in realizing them, in particular, the contribution the vocational education and training (VET) sector may make towards regional growth. In support of the full report, this document presents data tables and figures; discusses the key concepts flowing from the major regional development theories of institutional embeddedness that have emerged over the last few decades; discusses the methodology of the study; and explains the patterns of regional growth found. (Contains 13 tables and 17 figures.) [This document was produced by the authors based on their research for the report, "An Enterprising Approach to Regional Growth: Implications for Policy and the Role of VET" (ED499665) and was funded by the Australian Department of Education, Science and Training.]
