National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
Researchers from La Trobe University are investigating the factors affecting successful course completion for Vocational Education and Training (VET) students with a mental illness. The research aims to: (1) Increase individuals' understanding of the factors contributing to successful course completions by students with disclosed or non-disclosed mental illness in the TAFE (technical and further education) and private VET provider sectors; (2) Explore the factors influencing decisions about disclosure or non-disclosure of mental illness and their implications for successful or non-successful TAFE course completion; (3) Understand the role of disclosure of mental illness in the experience of successful and non-successful TAFE course completion; and (4) Develop a set of guidelines for VET staff to assist in managing key aspects of the student experience, including disclosure. This document was produced by the author based on her research for the report "Unfinished business: student perspectives on disclosure of mental illness and success in VET," and is an added resource for further information. This document provides research interview questions and participant information. (Contains 4 tables.)
