Connecting the Dots: A Successful Transition for Deaf Students from Vocational Education and Training to Employment. A National Vocational Education and Training Research and Evaluation Program Report

This study identifies and evaluates the pathways available from school to vocational education and training and to work, for students who are deaf or hard of hearing. Research involved interviews with seven young people from Victoria who had either just completed secondary school and were enrolling in a VET course, or had completed a course and were looking for work. The study found that only when they undertook apprenticeships and traineeships did students find employment related to their field, and that more emphasis needs to be placed on developing strategies to assist deaf students to overcome attitudinal barriers in the workplace. The case study questionnaire is appended. (Contains 1 footnote.) [This work has been produced with funding provided through the Australian Department of Education, Science and Training.
