Tracking Our Success: How TAFE Institutes Measure Their Effectiveness and Efficiency--Case Studies. Support Document
Misko, Josie; Wynes, Sian Halliday
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This report is the support document to "Tracking Our Success: How TAFE Institutes Measure Their Effectiveness and Efficiency". It comprises reports on each of the nine technical and further education (TAFE) institutes that have taken part in the study. Information was collected via in-depth interviews with chief executive officers and their senior and middle management teams (including faculty directors and educational managers responsible for trade and non-trade programs, marketing, human resources, financial management, administrative services, student services, quality assurance or their equivalents). In each case study the authors begin with some brief descriptions of institute characteristics, including main programs offered, and goals and values. They then examine key processes and information used to develop strategic plans and budgets to measure progress towards targets. This is followed by a discussion of how institutes understand the markets in which they operate and the quality of their provision. They end by reports of issues and problems and suggestions for improvement. (Contains 20 footnotes.) [To access "Tracking Our Success: How TAFE Institutes Evaluate Their Effectiveness and Efficiency.
