Cultural Dimensions of Indigenous Participation in Vocational Education and Training: New Perspectives. Research Report
Dockery, Alfred Michael
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This study provides new evidence on the inter-relationships between Indigenous Australians' association with their traditional culture and their engagement with vocational education and training. It builds on previous work to develop a "richer" measure of the concept of cultural attachment. This report discusses the links between cultural identity and current participation in education, and the benefits Indigenous Australians derive from education and training. Appendix tables are included. (Contains 16 tables, 1 figure and 1 footnote.)
