Employers' Views on Improving the Vocational Education and Training System. Occasional Paper
Rittie, Toni; Awodeyi, Tomi
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This study examines employers' views, taken from the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) Survey of Employer Use and Views on the VET (vocational education and training) System, on the three ways they can engage with the VET system: by having vocational qualifications as a job requirement; employing apprentices and trainees; and using nationally recognised training. In particular, the authors focus on employers' suggestions for improvement to the VET system and, for those employers who are dissatisfied with the system, their reasons for dissatisfaction. Three appendices are included: (1) Reasons for dissatisfaction code frame; (2) 2005 Suggested improvements code frame; and (3) 2007 Suggested improvements code frame. (Contains 2 tables, 2 footnotes and 1 figure.) [Funding for this paper provided through the Australian Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.]
