Towards a New Approach to Mid-Level Qualifications. Research Report
Moodie, Gavin; Wheelahan, Leesa; Fredman, Nick; Bexley, Emmaline
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
The authors look at the roles that vocations, vocational streams and productive capabilities can play in improving links between mid-level qualifications and occupational outcomes. Support for vocational streams and productive capabilities varied by industry but there is the potential to progress these concepts in each of the industries investigated. Suggestions for progressing these concepts include changing the emphasis of tertiary curriculum away from specific occupations to preparation for a broad field of practice and having equal representation by social partners on qualification and approval bodies. This report is part of the research program--"Vocations: the link between post-compulsory education and the labour market."
