Tracking Our Success: How TAFE Institutes Evaluate Their Effectiveness and Efficiency. Occasional Paper
Misko, Josie; Halliday-Wynes, Sian
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
The key drivers of technical and further education (TAFE) institutes' systems for monitoring and evaluating effectiveness and efficiency are accountability for government funding, compliance with legislation and quality assurance requirements. The need to supplement government funding with commercial income requires institutes to understand the training markets in which they operate and to maintain productive networks with industry and local communities. This paper provides an account of the management strategies and processes that TAFE institutes use to evaluate their performance. It concludes that institutes use similar practices to understand their business and it provides some suggestions for the type of information that would be beneficial. Two appendices are included: (1) State strategic objectives; and (2) Examples of information that states are required to provide to state funding bodies. (Contains 1 table and 19 footnotes.) [Additional information relating to this research is available in the support document: "Tracking Our Success: How TAFE Institutes Evaluate Their Effectiveness and Efficiency--Case Studies."
